Additional grinding-active layers

Improves cutting performance while reducing temperatures in the contact zone.

Prevents chip adhesion to avoid clogging up the abrasive. Also results in longer service life.

By avoiding electrostatic build-up, the dust created by grinding does not adhere to the machine or workpiece.

Backings

Cloth backings

  • Available in aramid, cotton, polyester or polycotton
  • The cloth is utilised as a backing for abrasives after in-house finishing has been completed, to adjust elongation and flexibility.
  • High tear strength
  • Depending on the application, cloth backings are available from extremely flexible (E-cloth) to extremely sturdy (Z-cloth)

Paper backings

  • Stretch-resistant
  • Lower weight compared to cloth
  • The lighter the paper, the more flexible the backing becomes
