Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning Rolls are available in FE or RC material types for use on vibratory orbital and straight-line sanders. They efficiently deburr and blend while producing matte and satin finishes. Rolls can also be cut to size and used by hand or to finish a part turning on a lathe or spindle.

Ease of Use
Our Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning Rolls come in a variety of grades and are color coded by grade to help operators save time and avoid error when using multiple grades in a sequence. The very fine grade will cut less aggressively and produce a finer finish whereas the coarse grade will cut more aggressively and produce a coarser finish.

Aluminum oxide mineral used for FE and RC material renders them a good match for use on ferrous metals, high nickel / chrome alloys and stainless steel. The aluminum oxide mineral is friable and fragments under heat and pressure to reveal sharp cutting edges, and this cycle of renewal keeps the abrasive cutting fast.

FE Material for Stock Removal
Our Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning Roll with FE material helps prepare workpieces for gleaming finishes by doing the heavy lifting up front; it has a high initial rate of cut and some its best uses include deburring and blending. Among Standard Abrasives™ surface conditioning materials, FE material is best when high contact pressure and stock removal are required.

RC Material for Flat Surface Finishing
Our Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning Roll with RC material offers the best initial rate of cut compared to other surface conditioning materials. It is a versatile abrasive that can deburr, clean, blend and finish. Above all, it is the best material for flat surface finishing. Among Standard Abrasives™ surface conditioning materials, RC material best rises to the challenge on ferrous metals where final finish is important, and is a good choice for aluminum. Its high cut rate helps it deliver on consistency, so users get a uniform cut over the entire surface.

Dense Material, Efficient Surface Conditioning
Surface conditioning material combines non-woven nylon fibers and aluminum oxide mineral using a resin bond to create an open web. Its resin bond tolerates heat and enhances overall abrasive durability. Moreover, gaps between the non-woven fibers allow swarf and debris to escape, prolonging abrasive service life.

Overall, surface conditioning products provide a more compact structure of non-woven fibers than Buff & Blend products. Surface Conditioning products have a woven polyester fabric (scrim) embedded in the nylon structure to provide additional strength and durability for edge work, deburring and efficient blending of all metal types. They resist loading, can be washed and re-used, and may be used with lubricants.
