Shapton has pioneered a totally new concept for diamond abrasive technology. Marrying microchip production methods with diamond abrasive technology, Shapton® has built the worlds first diamond on glass lapping plate.
The substrate for these plates is created from specially prepared float glass. Each substrate is tested for flatness and microscopically small defects before it’s surface is embedded with diamonds.
The result is a flattening plate with a production deviation of ± 5 microns!
What does this mean for the user? Uniformity across the surface of every sharpening stone. Sharpening can progress without concern for uniformity because every stone flattened with this plate will be extraordinarily flat.
Even the walls of the groves on these plates are embedded with diamonds, this creates a very durable edge.
