As the name suggests, finishing abrasive wheels are used to produce final finishing over brass, stainless steel, ferrous and non-ferrous materials. The construction of this wheel is open-web which helps its to stay cool and reduce the amount of heat generated while working. This lessens its effect on materials that are heat-sensitive which in turn provides consistent finishing in curved, contoured and other surfaces. Finishing wheels are most suitable for situations where the density of the surface is less and its degree of conformability is high.
Clean Abrasive Wheel
Grit-impregnated coarse nylon fabric – fi ts on the normal 100mm shaft but has a working width of 110 mm due to the overhang. As a result, the tightening screw is sunk into the wheel and you can grind up to the edge. With a vibration-damping core for single, double and quadruple spline shafts, ensuring the wheel runs perfectly. Cleans and removes pore-deep paint, rust, scale and dirt on all materials. Similar effect to sand-blasting; as it cleans without removing material. Ideal for car bodywork, the automotive industry, in shipyards and renovation work by commercial decorators and builders.
Fleece Abrasive wheels
Fleece wheel is ideally used for blending, light deburring, removing oxides and coatings from non-ferrous materials and stainless steel. It weighs around 1 kg and is 110 mm thick.
Rust Clean Abrasive wheels
Cleans and removes pore-deep paint, rust, scale and dirt on all materials. Similar effect to sand-blasting; as it cleans without removing material. Ideal for car bodywork, the automotive industry, in shipyards and conservation work by commercial decorators and builders. Cleans without damaging the basic material. Does not smear, even when heavily soiled. No metal content whatsoever and therefore no risk of corrosion.
Non Woven Abrasive wheels
Non woven wheels can be found of three types- convolute, flap and unified. These are used differently for each type of application. It has different approach for each of its uses.
Flap Abrasive wheels
In cases where surface conformability is a priority or when the approach desires long-line brushed finish, the best wheel is Flap wheel. It is formed by piling up sheets of the non woven material near to the centre hub.
Scotch wheel is mostly used to reduce the time frame of cleaning surfaces which is done by minimizing smearing and heat generation. In standard terms it is basically used for finishing and deburring.
