CBN, short for ‘Cubic Boron Nitride’, is a material that has a slightly lower hardness than diamonds. However, they are not exactly the same. Gemmata, a renowned diamond company in Belgium, likes to explain the differences to you. Diamonds are fully natural elements. CBN, on the other hand, is an industrial production, formed with boron and nitride under pressure and heat. The advantage of CBN lays in its wear resistant capabilities. The crystals are les friable making CBN ideal for grinding ferrous materials. While diamonds can cause a chemical reaction in the industrial process when it is used to grind hardened steel, CBN remains its consistency.
