An abrasive is a material, often a mineral that is used to shape or finish a work piece through rubbing which leads to part of the work piece being worn away by friction. While finishing a material often means polishing it to gain a smooth, reflective surface, the process can also involve roughening as in satin, matte or beaded finishes. Abrasives are used in the form of grinding wheels, sandpapers, honing stones, polishes, cutoff wheels, tumbling and vibratory mass-finishing media, sandblasting, pulp stones, ball mills, and still other tools and products. Only through the use of abrasives is industry able to produce the highly precise components and ultra-smooth surfaces required in the manufacture of automobiles, airplanes and space vehicles, mechanical and electrical appliances, and machine tools.
The Global Abrasives Industry 2015 Detailed Project Report is a professional and in-depth study on the current state of the Abrasives spread across 151 pages, profiling 24 companies and supported with 235 tables and figures.
Asbestos Cement Sheet (ACS) is a building material in which asbestos fibres are used to reinforce thin rigid cement sheets. It is a very popular building material, largely due to its durability. The roofing industry is largely a commoditized business. While ACS started out as an industrial product, the increase in production and increase in the number of access points has made it into a retail product. The asbestos cement industry is concerned with the production of various kinds of roofing, wall, and facing sheet materials; pressure and nonpressure pipes; electrical insulation boards; building details; structural components; and other products made from a base of asbestos and cement. In India, the world's biggest asbestos importer, it's a $2 billion industry with double-digit annual growth, at least 100 manufacturing plants and some 300,000 jobs.
India is the second largest producer of cement in the world. No wonder, India's cement industry is a vital part of its economy, providing employment to more than a million people, directly or indirectly. India has a lot of potential for development in the infrastructure and construction sector and the cement sector is expected to largely benefit from it.
Cement demand in India is expected to increase due to government’s push for large infrastructure projects, leading to 45 million tonnes of cement needed in the next three to four years. India's cement demand is expected to reach 550-600 Million Tonnes Per Annum (MTPA) by 2025. The housing sector is the biggest demand driver of cement, accounting for about 67 per cent of the total consumption in India. The other major consumers of cement include infrastructure at 13 per cent, commercial construction at 11 per cent and industrial construction at nine per cent.
Refractory materials are used to provide refractory lining in furnaces, kilns, incinerators, and reactors. These materials have a high melting point (greater than 1,520 degree Celsius). Refractory materials are subjected to various conditions such as high temperature, abrasions and chemical corrosions, slag attacks, and chemical reactions when they are used in refractory linings. Hence, these materials must be able to endure these conditions with less wear and tear and high reliability. The Steel industry is one of the major end-users of these materials.
