Industrial Finishing

Micro-Mesh  Regular and MX grades are used in manual and machine finishing operations for plastics, metals and hard woods.

What is a Cushioned Abrasive?

Micro-Mesh is made with a cloth backing, followed by a layer of formulated latex. Then the silicon carbide or aluminium oxide crystals are bonded to the latex with a flexible glue.

How does Micromesh work?

When contact pressure is applied to the crystals recede and rotate to present their sharp cutting surface. The abrasive crystals all cut and work evenly across the surface.

Why is Micromesh Better?

The abrasive crystals can move back in the cushion, a much larger abrasive crystal can be used to achieve a very fine consistent and uniform scratch pattern. The larger crystals and the flexible backing result in longer lasting abrasive that resists loading and reduced heat build up. Micromesh can be used in fewer stages to produce a polished finish making it the economical choice for professionals world wide.
