The "MATRIX™" Ceramic Composite lap has a self-renewing microtexture
and surface complexity that allows better polish retention and a less
critical fluid film thickness. The MATRIX™ surface was characterized
by computer programs similar to those used in the design of all-weather
tires.(FD is 1.8927). This allows high deep charging rates, and use
with both diamond and oxides.
The 8" DiaMatrix™ is a toughened, hardened version with a lower
complexity that forces a high concentration monolayer on the surface
of the lap, providing significantly sharper meets and flatter facets.
It is optimized for diamond use, and in particular, for use with the
BLAKSTIK™ water-dispersable polycrystalline diamond series of products.
The MATRIX™ and Diamatrix™ concepts were
suggested by Adamas Instrument, as was the suggestion of the thicker
