Dry Grinding D 2


To dry grind or to wet grind. Is it really a personal preference? Working with molds for 2 yrs. using S-7 we always wet ground our blocks with consecutive and consistent results. Now, working on dies, using D-2, this company's practice is to dry grind everything. It's almost "uncomfortable" to grind w/o coolant. The supervisor's theory is that the coolant puts some kind of "coating" or build-up on the D-2, thus causing a problem. Is there any evidence to substantiate this claim?
