Extreme accuracy of lapped surfaces (flat or spherical)
Close parallelism of double lapped faces
Extremely close fit between mating surfaces
Removal of damaged surface and sub-surface layers that
may degrade electrical and/or optical properties of the lapped
Polishing is just lapping using finer abrasive products.
As we move into the 21st Century, we continue to provide the ultimate
in precision finishing compounds for the final polishing of metal,
ceramic, plastic and glass workpieces.
