Welcome to the Abrasives Laboratory, coordinated by Profa. Dra. Katia Cristiane Gandolpho Candioto

Here we work with development, manufacturing, abrasion processes and degradation studies of abrasive materials.


  • Promote technology of abrasive materials.


  • Develop research and knowledge of abrasive materials of better performance through studies of new materials and manufacturing processes, identify effects on mechanical properties and life cycle in the content of its application in abrasion processes.
  • Train human resources in the materials area and manufacturing processes.
