Improved Method for Grinding and Polishing Cemented Carbide (WC-Co) For Metallographic Analysis Utilizing LeStar Polishing Film

Metallographic studies of cemented carbides are unique, but need not be difficult. Because of their high hardness, cemented carbides are sectioned with a diamond precision saw. Their high hardness also requires that special grinding and polishing procedures be used.
