Diamond-CBN grinding wheels according to binding

In the case of the galvanic bond, the diamond or CBN grit is bonded to the carrier body with a galvanically applied nickel coat. This bond is very open, grinds aggressively and, with an appropriately selected grain, is suitable for grinding steel, carbide, glass, ceramics and plastics. The galvanic bond is normally applied as a single layer, i.e. the layer thickness corresponds more or less to the grit size, so it cannot be dressed or reprofiled once worn.
