Unified Abrasives Manufacturers' Association Publications

The UAMA was formed from the merging of four predecessor organizations: the Abrasive Grain Association, Coated Abrasives Manufacturers’ Institute, Diamond Wheel Manufacturers’ Institute and the Grinding Wheel Institute.
UAMA maintains a four-committee structure that allows for members to focus on the portion of the Abrasives Industry that is most pertinent to their company. The mission of the UAMA is to undertake those activities that can be pursued more effectively by an Association than individual companies in order to enable the industry to freely create and market safe, productive abrasive products throughout the world.
