Types of medium used in hybrid processes.

Process Polymer carrier Abrasives used Workpiece material Prominent results
Basic AFM [89] (a) Natural Rubber (NR)
(b) Butyl Rubber
SiC Al and En8 Butyl Rubber based medium shows good performance as compared to natural rubber.
ECAFM [71] Polypropylene glycol and polyethylene glycol Al2O3 Electrically conductive material (1) Excellent internal surface finishing.
(2) Electrolyte abrasives laden medium can be extruded at low extrusion pressure.
MAAFM [73] (1) Silicon-based polymer
(2) Ferromagnetic constituents
Al2O3 Brass Increase in the strength of the medium by applying magnetic field.
R-AFF [90] Styrene-Butadiene Rubber (SBR) SiC (Al alloy, Al alloy/SiC with 10 % SiC and 15% SiC) MMC Rheological properties of medium were modified for getting good results regarding material removal rate and surface finish.
MRAFF [47] Paraffin oil and grease Sic SS Better surface finish as compare to AFM
