An abrasive grain is a hard, tough substance containing many sharp projection cutting edges or points. It is used as a cutting tool to penetrate and cut away material that is softer than itself. Abrasive Materials used for abrasives are generally characterized by high hardness and moderate to high fracture toughness.
