The Muscle Behind the Machine
Norton QUANTUM3™ (NQ3) Depressed Center Grinding Wheels feature a proprietary grain along with a tougher bond system containing a unique combination of fillers and bonding agents that allow for much better mix quality in manufacturing. Norton Quantum3 wheels are constructed using a precisely engineered iron, sulfur and chlorine-free resin technology to provide a uniform abrasive distribution throughout the wheel. This unique bond was designed for retaining the grains long enough during and after grain fractures. This subtle but powerful bond characteristic enables both excellent cut rates and exceptionally long wheel life. Test results conducted with NQ3 and competitive wheels revealed that NQ3 removed almost twice the amount of carbon steel at five minute intervals.
