Non Woven Abrasives

Non-woven abrasive products can be used in a broad range of surface-conditioning applications from cleaning and finishing to deburring and light blending. Unlike bonded and coated abrasives, they cannot be used for applications requiring heavy stock removal such as grinding and weld blending.

All non-woven products are fabricated from base materials that are composed of a random "web" of nylon fibers that have been bonded together with synthetic resins and impregnated with abrasive grains. Although these materials vary in fiber density, their three dimensional nature results in specialty abrasive products that are pliable, conformable to the work surface, and limited in their ability to remove base stock.

Non-woven products resist loading and perform consistently as new, fresh abrasive grains are exposed as the nylon fibers wear away from the product during use. Non-woven abrasives can be used either wet or dry on a range of materials including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, ceramics, plastics, composites, and wood. Non-woven products are designed for use where stock removal is not required. Non-wovens begin where coated abrasives leave off.
