About SIGN

SIGN Network was established in 2009, as one of the most significant and influential networks of indigenous grant-makers in the WB with aim to contribute to the development of sustainable local communities and civil society. Main purpose of the SIGN Network is to promote and support the development of local philanthropy, local communities, cross-sector partnerships and long-term sustainability of civil society in countries in Southeast Europe on national, regional and EU levels.

The network combines strong understanding of local conditions through partnership with grass-roots organizations, think tanks and other local associations; cutting edge experience in developmental grantmaking; renowned expertise in the field of philanthropy, local community development, cross-sector partnerships and sustainable civil society; as well as strategic advocacy partnerships at national and international levels.

SIGN operates as a non-formal network that is governed by the steering group which is comprised of representatives from each member-organization. The steering group is responsible for strategic decisions, admittance of new members and cessation of membership, establishment of ad-hoc structures, fundraising activities and statutory changes. One organization (currently HORUS from North Macedonia) – member of the Network serves as a chairing organization.

 

Members of SIGN Network are:

3/8 Arbor Norton Gemini Flexible Blending Depressed Center Abrasive Wheel Pack of 5 2 Diameter x 1/8 Thickness Grit 60 Aluminum Oxide Type 27

Norton Gemini Flexible Blending Depressed Center Abrasive Wheel, Type 27, Aluminum Oxide, 3/8' Arbor, 2' Diameter x 1/8' Thickness, Grit 60 (Pack of 5): Industrial & Scientific. Norton Gemini Flexible Blending Depressed Center Abrasive Wheel, Type 27, Aluminum Oxide, 3/8" Arbor, 2" Diameter x 1/8" Thickness, Grit 60 (Pack of 5): Industrial & Scientific. Norton Gemini Type 27 flexible depressed center wheels flex for control of the finish quality and removal rate of material during light stock removal. These wheels are used for blending, finishing, and polishing metals. 。 Reinforced wheels are designed to resist breakage caused by severe cross-bending and are required on any operation where the work is not securely clamped. Resin bonds are organic bonds that soften under the heat of grinding, releasing dulled abrasive grains. Because of its forgiving nature, only an organic type bond is used in cutoff wheels. The resin-bonded wheel is more resilient than a vitrified wheel. The manufacturing term for a resin bond wheel is "cured," meaning the wheel has been heated to less than 500 degrees F. Depressed center wheels are flat faced with inset centers and are used for cutting off and portable grinding. The depressed center prevents the tool mandrel from gouging the workpiece. These wheels are typically used on flat workpieces at a slight angle with the workpiece. Depressed center wheels are frequently used with right-angle grinders. Using a harder grade wheel increases wheel life but also increases burn and requires more power, and decreases cut rate. Burn is the effect on a workpiece from thermal stress as abrasive cuts or rubs material away. The damage ranges from discoloration to cracking of the workpiece. 。 Aluminum oxide is a widely used and versatile abrasive material. It is a tough, fracture- and wear-resistant grit that works well with a broad range of materials, from metals to wood. Aluminum oxide is more durable than silicon carbide and often used for material removal and finishing. 。 Abrasives are used for a variety of applications from shaping a part to fine finishing, depending on the grit size. Low grit numbers like 40 are coarse and are used for removing excess material and shaping a part. High grit numbers like 400 are fine and help to create a smooth surface finish. 。 Norton Abrasives manufactures a wide variety of sanding, grinding, and polishing abrasives, and has been located in the United States since 1885. In 1990, Saint-Gobain purchased Norton, keeping its manufacturing facilities and offices in the same location. Norton/Saint-Gobain has been recognized as a Global 100 Sustainable Company, as well as earning ISO 9000 and 14001 certification for quality and environmental management standards. 。 。 。 。 。
