Company Overview

They were so well received that "MICROGRIT WCA" was the abrasive of

choice for lapping command module windows in the Mercury,

Gemini and Apollo space projects. Combining the best of long established

practice with the most effective of new technologies, Micro has won a

reputation for consistent high product quality and superior customer service.

In addition to its standard product lines in aluminum oxide

(micron and sub-micron sizes), silicon carbide and cerium oxide abrasive

powders, it also offers custom services in the preparation of these powders

to meet special customer requirements. Keys to Micro's success in its chosen

field of specialization are its people, its process methods and its quality control techniques. All of the processes at Micro have been engineered to ensure that uniform quality can be maintained. Mechanization and labor-saving devices have been employed where they are practical and where their application is consistent with the highest quality of abrasive powders. Automation has never been adopted solely for the sake of labor saving, the criterion is always how the process or procedure will affect the product. Quality management at Micro Abrasives blends consistency with the latest innovations in Total Quality.
