 What are Non-Woven Abrasives and Why to Use them?

Non-Woven Abrasives also referred to as three-dimensional abrasives, are composed of abrasive grain-infused nylon fibers bonded with synthetic resins.

The result produces a pliable, flexible, and long-lasting material. They have been serving a unique and specific function in the abrasives market by developing the final surface finish, transforming the performance and appearance of the workpiece.

Where are Non-Woven Abrasives products used?

  • Cleaning
  • Buffing-up
  • Finishing purposes
  • Blending
  • Polishing
  • Scrubbing
  • Defuzzing plywood
  • Deburring
  • Decorative finish
  • Satin finish on the metal

Why use Non-Woven Abrasive products?

Here is a list of the pros of using Non-Woven Abrasives products:

Exceptional self-healing performance under surface tears

  • Rigid Core
  • Waterproof
  • Consistent, uniform satin finish
  • Minimum heat and discoloration of the workpiece
  • Resistance against corrosion
  • Easy to operate
  • Low noise levels
  • Less maintenance required
  • Better safety than other methods
  • No alteration in the shape of the workpiece

Why should you consider using Non-Woven Brushes?

The primary reason to choose the non-woven material is to accomplish the desired result with a uniform satin finish. Non-Woven brushes produce the maximum amount of abrasive grit points in contact with the surface. Their excellent self-healing performance under surface tears and the cross-stitched webbing make them long-lasting.

They come in different sizes and types depending on the purpose of their use. Our range of Non-woven brushes include the following:
