4.0 –Interleaved & Nonwoven

Interleaved and nonwoven finishing products are designed for creating special surface finishes.  Nonwovens are comprised of synthetic resins, nylon fibers and abrasive grain. The individual fibers intermesh in a very loose bind. This provides maximum flexibility, and allows it to conform to the workpiece contours. The fleece material is very soft, smooth, and extremely springy. This produces satin finish which cannot be achieved with conventional abrasives. Interleaved products are made with a combination of nonwoven material and traditional coated abrasive. The addition of the coated abrasive makes them slightly more aggressive, and more durable than nonwoven material alone. Interleaved products are suitable for light deburring applications or to create a brushed surface appearance.

We will be expanding our finishing tools product range in future. So feel free to come along and check out some of our other interesting products.

Application areas & guidance notes

Grain size

The even distribution of the grinding grit in the fleece ensures a continuous supply of new grit. The grinding grit stays constantly fresh and sharp throughout the life of the product.

It is customary to choose a specific grain size when selecting grinding tools. For grinding fleece, however, the following grading is applied.

Extra coarse
Very fine
Ultra fine
