    The severity of the grinding operation affects the choice of abrasive and grade. A tough abrasive like 4A Aluminum Oxide should be used for rough, heavy duty grinding of steel. The milder abrasives like 32 and 38 Aluminum Oxide are best for lighter precision grinding operations on steels and semisteels, while the intermediate 57 and 19 Aluminum
