suggest add the dmoz link[edit]

I would like to tell about DMOZ directory. Many of us are trying to gain this back link....in this DMOZ directory services is very seductive. After ignoring DMOZ as source for search engine the importance of DMOZ has been decreased.Presence in DMOZ has for webmaster meaning. It is mark of "domain quality", because domain was approved in DMOZ directory. Especially while selling domain, presence in DMOZ can increase domain price, hence the DMOZ link should be added Anoopnair2050 (talk) 09:56, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
then lets add a small list of suppliers or association lists. 59.183.61.238 (talk) 10:28, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
The Wikipedia motto is "be bold". Instead of talking about it, why did no one do it? — RHaworth (Talk | contribs) 18:28, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Other things to add[edit]

  • Abrasion as a wound caused by something acting as an abrasive.
  • Cost as a factor in choosing abrasives. Waerloeg 05:41, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
    • Diamond expensive and fullerites and diamond nanorods being non-commerical due to laboratory production.
  • Cleaning: whether suspended in cream or steel wool scouring.
  • Undesired carbon in car engines.
  • Cleaning of skin--exfoliation, derm-abrasion.
  • Bad people who use knives to cut on glass or metal. Glass cutters.
  • Prepare surface for painting, gluing. Waerloeg 10:35, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Different to filing. Waerloeg 14:32, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
  • The article is very informative and useful and gives a clear idea about what exactly 'abrasive' means.210.211.129.65 (talk) 10:20, 5 February 2008 (UTC)ASHWIN —Preceding unsigned comment added by 210.211.129.65 (talk) 10:08, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Fact check[edit]

Glaciers erode valleys but not by te action of ice over rock, rather by rock in the ice grinding the underlying rock. Similarly, I would expect that it is grains caught by the sole of the shoes that abrade the stones. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.176.181.109 (talk) 02:58, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

I agree with this. The force of the glacier breaks off (not abrades) rock, and then the embedded rock abrades more rock. The ice acts as the matrix, not the abrasive.

Also, steel files do not act by abrasion. They cut the material. Other kinds of files, like nail files, are abrasive, however. —Preceding unsigned comment added by JNDoyle (talkcontribs) 21:08, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Propose to have a section in the main Article. Section = Abrasive Grain Associations[edit]

I Suggest there be a section in the main article: List of Associations

Will update the list with some more associations. Dhoomady (talk) 08:46, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

No. A single dmoz link as discussed above, and now done, is far better. — RHaworth (Talk | contribs) 18:28, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
But what about people who come to this article to get more data about whats happening with abrasives around the world. I agree getting the link on DMOZ is worth but it wont help people to know whats happening in the the abrasive industry around the world. I feel the proposed Section will add value to the article.

Dhoomady (talk) 07:08, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

let me study the dmoz link Dhoomady (talk) 06:03, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
FOR inclusion Sanjiv swarup (talk) 09:45, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
There's more than just a little conflict of interest here. Stop it, guys. The dmoz link suffices. Kuru talk 14:30, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
Mr. Kuru: Please elaborate upon the conflict of interest . BTW, I checked the DMOZ link; there is an absence of association links there. Sanjiv swarup (talk) 14:21, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

True grit[edit]

I have taken out links to grit because they serve no useful purpose. We do need a definition of grit numbers - probably best in this article. 91.104.116.109 (talk) 01:02, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

It should probably link to grit size. Wizard191 (talk) 12:12, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
