What are Abrasives?

The term "abrasives" covers any tools or substances that are used to smooth, shape, or finish other materials through rubbing. As the abrasives rub against the surface, small parts of the surface are worn away, leading to a smooth and harmonious finish, free of any roughness or unwanted elements on the surface.

What are the Different Types of Abrasives?

There are many varieties of abrasives used on a daily basis for everything from simple DIY projects at home to high-end manufacturing, woodwork, and engineering. Examples of commonly-used abrasive material include:

  • Pumice
  • Sandpaper
  • Emery

There are also many different tools used for abrasive purposes, like grinding and cutting wheels, files, sandblasters, tumblers, and more. These tools vary in terms of size and application, but all effectively make use of friction to rub and grind away at other surfaces.

Common Uses of Abrasives

Abrasives are used to wear down rough or unfinished surfaces, making them smoother and refining their shape. A common example of abrasives in action is the use of sandpaper to rub away roughness from a piece of wood, leaving it soft and smooth to the touch.
