Three properties of a diamond that makes them good as cutting tools?

1 answer Reward0 Question has Expired

m doing a physics presentation, and need to talk about the properties of diamonds that make it good as an aide in cutting tools? 
i have hardness, but would toughness and stiffness as properties be helpful too or not? 
any advice/links would be great! :)

    Diamond is the hardest material on the earth, and its hardness is much higher than corundum and silicon carbide. Diamond also has high strength, good wear resistance and low friction coefficient. So when used as an abrasive, it has many obvious advantages over the common abrasives. Advantages of diamond grinding tools Diamond can be used to make grinding tools, which have following advantages: High grinding efficiency, Low grinding force: Less heat will be generated in the grinding process. This can decrease or avoid burns and cracks on the surface of the workpiece, and decrease the equipment's wear and energy consumption. High wear resistance: Diamond grinding tools' change in dimension is small. This can lead to good grinding quality and high grinding precision. Long lifespan, Long dressing period: This can greatly increase the work efficiency, and improve the workers' labor environment and decrease the product's labor intensity. Low comprehensive cost: The processing cost of each workpiece is lower.
