THE BENEFITS OF NON-WOVEN ABRASIVES
Non-Woven Abrasives are three dimensional abrasives. Abrasive grains are bonded to flexible nylon fibers, which provide a controlled, consistent finish. The “open weave” construction provides a continuous supply of new grain when fiber and old grain wear away. The flexible “spring-like” design reduces the chance of undercutting or gouging the work piece. Non-woven abrasives can be divided into six categories:
Surface Conditioning– Surface conditioning refers to the changing of a product’s surface, without removing or damaging the base material. These products are used in mechanical operations and include discs and belts.
Flex-N-Strip Products – Extra coarse silicon carbide grain is bonded to stiff extruded nylon fibers with a flexible resin. They are excellent for removing coatings from wood, metal and plastic. Also effective at paint & rust removal.
