How surfacing materials are used in today’s technology

Aug 8th 2014 at 1:33 PM

Many common consumers cannot be bothered, let alone be even curious, to know about the various amount of technology and materials that is involved in the development of their favorite products that they use regular basis. It’s all because of technological advancements that one such class of materials, which many might not know of, have become even more valuable with their increased level of usage.

Surfacing materials are an integral part in many of the end products we use today. Some of the examples are everyday technology products like tablet PCs, smart phones, and photonic glass; the entire range of products demand the use of surfacing materials like polishing powders. Basically, any application that need surface finishing as a key mechanical property in its development, such as display technology (CRT, LCD TFT, STN, OLED, color filters, etc.), mirrors, beveling, and crystals, is highly dependent on Quality Surfacing Materials .

Surfacing materials, such as diamond polishing abrasives, have a wide range of uses but of particular interest is in the application of sapphire polishing due its growing use in consumer technology products. Sapphire is not only a beautiful gem used for fine jewelry but it also is second only to diamonds in terms of mineral hardness and its high resistance to scratching and abrasion and its good electrical insulation properties also make it very valuable for more technical applications.

Some of the more common applications of sapphires in everyday products include bearings for contact points in fine watches, shatter resistant windows to even the glass created for the display screens of the Apple iPhone. All in all, the need for sapphire polishing is critical to ensure optimal performance for these particular products and technologies.

Demeter Technologies is one of largest manufacturers of high quality surfacing materials. Their TJD series of Diamond Polishing Compounds are primarily used in various items like diamond slurry, polishing pads, polishing disks, pellets, wire dies and PCD for use in common applications like polishing ceramics, sapphires and glass electronics.

Demeter Technologies believes that innovation is one-on-one and demands working with customers closely to customize and build value added products. Their other product offerings, including performance materials and fine chemicals, are among their huge catalog of advanced products for critical applications for various industries such as precision metal polishing, precision optics, medical applications, sapphires, crystals, glass, plastic and lens finishing, ceramics and composites.

Demeter Technologies is a technology solutions producer for its global customers. Adhering to strict material specifications and I9001 quality, Demeter provides the highest quality products servicing the surface materials, Optical Surfacing Supplies, medical, and energy and storage markets.
