Embedded Abrasive

Embedi Abrasive Particles
Example: Diamond particles embeded in the sample, Mag. 500x.

Loose abrasive particles pressed into the surface of the sample. With soft materials, abrasive particles can become embedded. That happen because of these reasons: Too small abrasive particle size, disc/cloth used for grinding or polishing with too low resilience or a lubricant with too low a viscosity. Often a combination of these reasons take place.
