Producing Fine Finishes
Whether a technical requirement or purely aesthetic, many industrial markets value a final finish on their workpieces. We engineered our Standard Abrasives™ Metal Finishing Wheel to help produce the finishes users hope to achieve. It's a good match for stainless steel fabricators and appliance and food equipment manufacturers, because it can help with production finishing of a variety of parts. Typical workpieces may include door hardware, plumbing fixtures, aluminum extrusions, sanitary metal containers and dairy equipment.

The Benefits of Aluminum Oxide
To engineer our Standard Abrasives™ Metal Finishing Wheel, we mix aluminum oxide mineral and nonwoven nylon fibers with resin to create an open web. Often, the mineral is paired with ferrous metals and composites, as well as fiberglass and plastic. It cuts aggressively without gouging or marring the substrate, maintaining original part geometry and reducing the need for rework. Medium grade aluminum oxide imparts decorative satin and antique finishes on stainless steel, brass and aluminum.

Dense and Durable
The nonwoven nylon fibers in the open web break down while finishing, exposing new mineral for a consistent cut. Moreover, gaps between the fibers allow swarf to escape, so the web resists clogging with debris, prolonging abrasive service life. Open web on the Metal Finishing Wheel is densely and compactly wound around a fiberglass core. The dense and durable construction helps the abrasive withstand greater contact pressures and speed variations. Additionally, the wheel edge can also be dressed to match part geometry if required. Combining aluminum oxide mineral with a dense convolute wheel constructions makes for a tough durable cutting wheel that requires minimal pressure. Moreover, the wheel's density helps it stay firm and not deflect or yield to the substrate, so it performs well on flat surfaces and edges.

Altogether, our Standard Abrasives™ Metal Finishing Wheel is a durable and long lasting finishing wheel. It has the strength and toughness required to stand up to edges and extrusions but still leaves a soft, fine finish in its wake.
