Detonation spraying provides the opportunity to produce superabrasive diamond grinding tools under atmospheric conditions. In this study, several methods are used to assess the effects of the spraying process on diamond particles, including SEM analysis, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, differential thermal analysis, thermogravimetric analysis, X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, and friability and fracture force testing. It was found that under optimized conditions, the thermal and mechanical impact of the detonation can remain low enough to ensure the reliability of the diamonds with no adverse effects.
