This chapter on the properties of hard materials illustrates the following: (i) Fracture stress as a function of layer thickness of CVD diamond and temperature dependence of thermal conductivity of diafilm specimens of different grades; (ii) Cross-section through a CVD diamond coated (SiC) tool insert: CVDITE, and microstructures of Syndite CTB 002, Syndite CTB 010 and Syndite CTB 025;(iii) Skive shaping of case hardened tool tooth flanks with various hardmetal grades; (iv) Finish turning of globular cast iron GGG40 with cermet cutting tools compared with uncoated and coated hardmetal grades, and copy turning of a gear shaft with coated and uncoated cermet grades. Drilling test results for TiN-PVD coated WC- 6 wt% Co alloys. (v) Turning MMC (20 % SiC-Al) alloy with PDC and CVDD tools, and the wear of hardmetal and PCD tools versus linear metres of chipboard edge machined; (vi) Effect of nickel cladding on the wet surface grinding of hardmetal, particle strength on G-ratio on grinding glass, and particle structure on the surface finish on grinding glass; (vii) Influence of diamond powder size, number of polishing passes and polishing disc speed on the surface finish of white granite; (viii) Comparison of penetration rates for a Syndax 3 hybrid bit and a conventional impregnated diamond bit; (ix). Typical dimensions of dies and anvils used in the production of synthetic diamond/ cubic boron nitride grits and polycrystalline products; (x) An example of a diamond plate used as a heat spreader in a laser diode package.
