SLK Coated Abrasive Flap Wheels
The special design of the wheels allows operations with rotational speeds up to 35 m/sec. The trim of the SLK coated abrasive flap wheels adapts to the shape of the workpieces to be finished. Different thicknesses are produced by using spacers in the core. Flaps can be slit. Main areas of application are the grinding of formed parts, finishing of steel tube furniture and household items (e.g. pots and pans, plates of steam irons, etc.). Other applications are in the tool manufacturing and appliance industry, the cutting process in polishing operations and the removing of weld seams. SLK-wheels are mostly used prior to the polishing process.

The original Bias Cloth Airway Buffs have been the industry standard for over 70 years. These buffs are effective finishing tools for ferrous and non-ferrous metals, marble, plastics, and other materials. Cloth Airways are used in all facetts of the finishing operations from coloring to cutting. Standard Cloth Airway buffs are available from hard to very soft (also roughened), untreated, mill treated or dip treated. Several treatments and dippings from soft to hard are possible.
