Ra or Sa alone cannot predict bond strength in all applications. Epoxied surfaces, in particular, require a more comprehensive specification. To get repeatable results in pull and peel tests, incorporate a high developed surface ratio (Sdr) and require full coverage.
Pumice is a gentle but tough cutting abrasive. It works best in applications where softer abrasives come up short and aggressive cutting abrasives are too aggressive. Learn more about this often overlooked media.
