Unified Abrasives Manufacturers’ Association

UAMA was established in 1999 as a non-profit business association that develops standards to support the design and production of abrasives. Technical experts from related industries and UAMA members create and maintain industry standards to ensure the quality of abrasive products.

It is also our mission to support the safe use of abrasive products. The UAMA website has resources such as a Safety Guide for Grinding Wheels and information on the Shelf Life of grinding wheels, abrasive discs, and abrasive belts. For more detailed safety information, please see publication B7.1-2010, American National Standard Safety Requirements for the Use, Care and Protection of Abrasive Wheels.

We are looking for consumers
