- setting power planers (tungsten carbide cutters won't nick the ceramic)
- boiler making shops (weld spatter is easily removed)
- lapping and abrasive cutting (far more abrasion resistant than steel)
The graduated edge is accurately marked in mm increments and is lapped flat and straight with a tolerance of 5 microns to tool-room standards. This is a durable, scratch-free, corrosion-free tool.
High Precision Ceramic Straightedges
A high tech precision ceramic straightedge is harder, rust-free and lasts longer than steel. It is even resistant to welding spatter. Our straightedges are available in both alumina (maximum hardness and corrosion resistance) and zirconia (maximum strength and toughness)
