Vector HTN

Lapping/Polishing Additive (Recirculating)

VECTOR HTN was developed for use in “high-speed recirculating” and “high-speed once-through” slurry pumping systems.. Utilizing the energy of a high-speed pump, standard on most lapping machines, it evenly disperses aluminum oxide, cerium oxide, silicon carbide, boron carbide, and garnet abrasive. It also reduces abrasive usage by eliminating “hard-packing” and waste. Note: VECTOR HTN should not be used in “low shear” mixing/pumping systems. Benefits: • No scratching • Less sub-surface damage • No hard-packing • Less abrasive waste • Increased removal rate • Easier post-lap cleaning • Non-corrosive to machine

Handling Instructions

VECTOR HTN is used at approximately 5% (by volume) with deionized (DI) water or tap water. After HTN is proportionately mixed with the water in the slurry tank, add the abrasive. The slurry will be ready for use almost immediately.

Start grain loading 400 g/liter of water for a one-meter machine.. Flow rate for the slurry should be approximately 300ml/minute for a one-meter machine.


Product should be stored in a temperature controlled environment. Prolonged exposure to temperatures at or below 32° Fahrenheit (0°C) is discouraged. Prolonged exposure to temperatures at or above 100° Fahrenheit (38°C) is also discouraged. In addition, material should always be sealed when not in use to prevent evaporation.


Dispose of in accordance with all applicable local regulations.
