Abrasive Tools are products or materials, such as sandpaper, pumice, or emery, used for scraping, grinding, smoothing, or polishing. Although finishing a material also involves polishing it to achieve a smooth, reflective surface, as in satin or beaded finish, the process can often require roughening. In short, the ceramics used for cutting, scraping, and polishing other softer materials are considered abrasives. Abrasives have a wide range of commercial, residential, and technical applications. Grinding, polishing, buffing, honing, digging, sharpening, lapping, and sanding are common applications for abrasives tools. Materials used as abrasives are typically either hard minerals (rated at seven or higher on the Mohs mineral hardness scale) or synthetic stones, some of which can be chemically and mechanically similar to minerals that occur naturally but may not be considered minerals because they do not occur naturally. It is expected that growing demand for abrasive tools in metalworking applications is likely to boost the market growth. Coated abrasives such as sandpaper and stones are used in metalworking for deburring, where the grinding of metal items is performed. Abrasive tools are also used in polishing different finished goods in the automobile and electronics industries.
