PFERD Inc.'s CC-GRIND®-SOLID for controlled rough grinding applications integrates a fibreglass backer and a high-performance coated abrasive that is said to be 40 percent more productive than reinforced grinding wheels. To illustrate the point, PFERD filmed a demonstration comparing the CC-GRIND-SOLID to one of its own conventional rough grinding wheels and that of a competitor.
