Mild cut ceramic media products typically have low abrasive content and are used when a small amount of metal removal is desired, thus resulting in smooth surface finishes. DURAMEDIA® products available for mild cut applications are 20/F and 50/SC. The DURAMEDIA® Plastic products available are Low Density 10 and High Performance 310MC and 350MC.
DURAMEDIA® 20/F is a white aluminum oxide based ceramic media that is versatile for general purpose and mildly abrasive mass finishing. This media can offers lower wear rates with a reasonable metal removal. Primary use for this product is on parts that require secondary operations after being welded or brazed. (85 lbs. /cubic foot, color: beige)
DURAMEDIA® 20/F is typically used for mild deburring on metals and plastics, and for burnishing (with proper compounding). It can also be used in place of plastic media for parts that are to be anodized or can be used on parts prior to brazing.
DURAMEDIA® 50/SC is an aluminum oxide based ceramic media that is relatively fast wearing, fast cutting media and contains a finely graded silicon carbide abrasive. (85 lbs./cubic foot, color: beige with blue/black grain)
DURAMEDIA® 50/SC is especially suited for materials to be welded, brazed, or soldered where exposure to fused aluminum oxide cannot be tolerated.
DURALITE®II is an aluminum oxide based ceramic media that is lightweight with an excellent cut to wear ratio designed for use on delicate parts. (65 lbs. /cubic foot, color: beige)
DURALITE® II serves as an alternative to plastic for light deburring and surface conditioning on softer metals. It is excellent for use with die cast parts and in aerospace applications.
DURALITE®II-S is the silicon carbide version of DURALITE®II. In addition to being lightweight and having an excellent cut to wear ratio, it can be used where fused aluminum oxide exposure is undesirable. (65 lbs. /cubic foot, color: beige)
DURALITE® II-S is the perfect formula for parts to be welded or soldered, where exposure to aluminum oxide is undesirable. It also provides mild cutting action where shorter cycle times are required.
DURAMEDIA® Plastic Low Density 10
DURAMEDIA® Plastic Low Density 10 (DPLD 10) is a low density resin-bonded plastic media that produces a low micro-inch preplate finish with very mild cutting action. (68 lbs. /cubic foot, color: blue)
DPLD 10 is used for buffing, burnishing, or plating to create a smooth, clean, and reflective finish.
DURAMEDIA® Plastic High Performance 310MC
DURAMEDIA® Plastic High Performance 310MC (DPHP 310MC) is a non-aggressive resin-bonded plastic media that provides a very minimal cut. It produces a matte finish with virtually no stock removal. (60 lbs. /cubic foot, color: black)
DPHP 310MC is ideal for use with chemical accelerants and as a driver of loose abrasives.
DURAMEDIA® Plastic High Performance 350MC
DURAMEDIA® Plastic High Performance 350MC (DPHP 350MC) is a high performance resin-bonded plastic media that produces an extremely low micro-inch finish with mild cutting action. (60 lbs. /cubic foot, color: gray)
DPHP 350MC is primarily used on ferrous metals that require an extremely fine finish and will be plated, welded, or brazed.
