Diamond Suspension

Low viscosity, high concentration, oil based suspensions available in monocrystalline (Type OM) and polycrystalline (Type OP).

Aquapol is the next generation of water based diamond suspensions for sample preparation. Available in monocrystalline (Aquapol-M) and polycrystalline (Aquapol-P). Aquapol is easy to clean and non-foaming.

  • Uniform suspension of diamond particles
  • No agitation required
  • Suitable for dispensing by Kemet Electronic Dispenser or alternative systems
  • ZERO Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC*)
  • Colour coded for easy identification

Available in 400g bottles with trigger spray. Other sizes (500ml, 1 litre, 2.5 litres etc.) are available upon request.

ZERO Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) - not classified as an atmospheric pollutant and offer health and safety benefits. VOCs are organic chemicals that have a high vapour pressure at ordinary room temperature, some of which can be dangerous to human health and/or cause harm to the environment.

Type KM Liquid Diamond

KM liquid diamond is a low viscosity oil/water emulsion suitable for most applications aimed at the metallographic market. zero voc

The new formula has the following advantages:

  • Lower viscosity to give better stock removal
  • Less inclusion pullout
  • Spreads better over the polishing cloth
  • Parts are easier to clean after polishing
  • Stable emulsion which does not separate
  • Diamond stays much longer in suspension
  • ZERO Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC*) - not classified as an atmospheric pollutant and offer health and safety benefits.

Type WX Liquid Diamond ... A high viscosity liquid diamond suspension! zero voc

For most applications where a liquid diamond suspension is required, we would recommend Kemet Liquid Diamond Type WM (manufactured with monocrystalline diamond powder) or Kemet Liquid Diamond Type WP (manufactured with polycrystalline diamond powder).

However, for a certain number of specialised applications, where a more viscous liquid diamond is called for, we have developed Type WX.

  • WX is highly suitable for the polishing of metallographic samples.
  • No agitation is required - the diamond remains in suspension.
  • The finely graded diamond powder is uniformly dispersed throughout the Liquid carrier, ensuring the generation of perfect surface finishes.
  • Available in Strong or Extra Strong Concentrations.
  • Water-soluble - components are easily cleaned.
  • Colour coded for ease of identification.
  • Suitable for use on all types of Kemet Lapping and Polishing Plates.
  • Supplied either in 400g, 425g or in 2500 gram (nett) bottles.

If a lubricating fluid is required, Kemet Type W2 is recommended.
