This Boron Carbide powder is manufactured specifically for wire saw slicing.  Emphasis has been placed on grain shape during the crushing process, along with a special multi-stage gradation process.  5 lb minimum order.  

The F400 B4C-SWS is often used for wire saw slicing applications (40/12 micron).   F360 B4C-SWS can also be used as well (32/8 micron) for wire saw slicing.  

This powder is put through an extra grading/ classification step that removes a small percentage of larger paricles that could impact the TTV (total thickness variance) and chipping.

Please note that these two products are different from Standard F360 and F400 Boron Carbide powders, so make sure you are ordering the correct item.  If the product item code contains "SWS" it is designed for wire saw slicing.  If you are seeking a boron carbide powder to polish sapphires , please look for a model number that ends with the letters "SP".
