In recent years, Fluid Jet Polishing (FJP) has been studied for its potential as a finishing method on optical lenses, mirrors and molds for a number of materials, such a glass and nickel. In this paper, the surface integrity of binderless tungsten carbide after polishing by FJP was studied experimentally. Two aspects in particular were focused on: (1) identifying process conditions under which grain boundaries may dislocate (thus leading to unintentional loss of grains from the substrate) and (2) identify process conditions under which abrasive particles may become embedded into the substrate, in order to prevent surface contamination.
