Abrasive Compounds

Our Abrasive Compounds and related products are used where the requirement is mainly for metal removal, de-burring, flexible fine grinding or satin finishing.

They use high quality FEPA (Federation of European Producers of Abrasives) or ANSI (American National Standards Institute) graded abrasives, aluminas, silicon carbide or blends, producing uniform, controlled finishes.  Greaseless compounds, graded abrasives held in a glue rather than grease based binder, combine effective metal removal and a range of satin finishes.  Cements and flexible glues are used to bond abrasive grain to buffs and felts, for effective de-burring, flexible grinding, satin finishing and polishing.  For ease of application, glues and abrasive can be supplied as pre-blended products.

Lubricants are used with abrasive belts, set-up wheels and flexible grinding products.  They greatly reduce burning and, particularly for materials such as aluminium, back transfer of metal particles onto the grinding belts.  This increases belt life and improves grinding performance.  They are available as solid bars or liquid pastes for application by brush or automatic spray systems and are manufactured in our Buxton, UK facility, under a rigorous ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management regime.
