K.C. Abrasive Company manufactures a premium quality Micro Alumina to meet your specific requirements for lapping quartz crystals, precision optics, opthalmic lenses, electronic components, semi-conductor substrates, or other lapping applications. Our Micro Aluminas feature a flat plate-like shaped crystal structure which reduces surface damage.
K.C. Abrasive Company’s Optical Powders are manufactured to exacting specifications for wholesale ophthalmic and precision lens industries. Our Optical Powders feature a blocky, angular shaped crystal for consistent stock removal and a narrow particle size distribution to assure a uniform surface finish from the fining process.
