Woven Cloths - Woven cloths feature low compression, applying effective pressure to the loose abrasive particles for maximum material removal and flatness/planarity. The cross-weave pattern is ideal for fine grinding or coarse and intermediate polishing.
Each disc is secured to an individual, dedicated platen using its adhesive
backing. Removal and reapplication of
these cloths is discouraged, because it reduces adhesion to the platen. Adhesive backed polishing cloths are an
economical choice, though they require that one platen be dedicated to each
cloth until it is worn and needs replacement.
Each disc features a flexible backing that will adhere to magnetized
platen surfaces. Multiple discs can be used with one magnetized platen, reducing the number of platens needed for each procedure, machine, or lab. Flexible backed polishing cloths can be stored in reclosable bags and labeled to prevent
disc features a rigid steel backing that will adhere to magnetized platen
surfaces. Multiple discs can be used
with one magnetized platen, reducing the number of platens needed for each
procedure, machine, or lab. Rigid discs
are better suited for applications that utilize alcohol based suspensions,
slurries, and lubricants, where prolonged polishing times are needed (EBSD), or
in high force applications that generate more heat. The backing offers corrosion resistance, high
stiffness, and a rounded, burr-free edge for safer handling. Note: Not available on all cloths
