Surface polishing

Polyurethane and rubber

These silicon carbide or aluminium oxide grinding wheels with a polyurethane or rubber bonding agent are used to dry/wet-polish surfaces in manual and automatic machines.
These elastic tools come in various hardnesses (soft, medium and hard) and adapt seamlessly to part geometry. They can achieve roughnesses of Rz<1.0 μm

These grinding wheels employ silicon carbide as the abrasive. As the bonding agent has a porous matrix, it adapts seamlessly to the part, permitting wet work. Even under high loads the grinding wheel does not require dressing.
It is available in grains of 24 to 400 and in three hardnesses — soft (WP), medium (MP) and hard (HP).

These grinding wheels employ aluminium oxide as the abrasive. As the bonding agent has a rubber matrix, cutting capacity is very high and stability and performance are excellent.
It is available in grains of 46 to 400 and in three hardness — soft (WR Plus), medium (MR Plus) and hard (HR Plus).
Polyurethane and rubber grinding wheels are used in dressing, sharpening, rust and lime scale removal, deburring, finishing (matt and super-finishing) and polishing operations, among others.
They are used to dress external and internal surfaces and profiles, as well as in centreless grinding and other operations. They are also used to polish tungsten carbide cutting tools to extend the bit or milling cutter’s service life.
They offer optimal performance in medical, jewellery, machinery, mould-making, precision engineering and electronics applications, among others.
