A multibond is an additional coating for coated abrasives which is applied to the size coat of the abrasive in a separate step of production at the end of the production process. When the abrasive is used later on, the multibond ensures a cooler grinding.

Multibond coatings are primarily used on high-quality abrasives used for stainless steel and high-alloy steels.

The multibond creates significantly less friction at the grain points of the abrasive, and therefore a lower temperature, ensuring that the material being processed adheres to the grain point much less and therefore also "vitrifies" the grain much less. Multibond also prevents or significantly reduces the heat-induced discolouration (heat tint) of the tool, which is a typical occurrence during stainless steel grinding.

Klingspor offers a wide selection of coated abrasives designed for processing stainless steel that include a multibond that is optimised for the intended application.
