1WHAT ARE COMPRESSED FIBER DISCS AND WHEELS FOR?
Compressed fiber discs and wheels, also called unitized discs or wheels, are used to remove scratches from roughing processes prior to satin or shine from stainless steel. These have great power to remove deep scratches and in one step leaves an optimal fineness for subsequent satin or shine processes.
2IN WHAT GRAINS OR HARDNESS IS THE COMPRESSED OR UNITIZED FIBER DISC MADE?
The unitized disc can be manufactured in grains as different as COARSE, MEDIUM, FINE, going from a hard density (7 or 8) to a soft density (5). Depending on each type of job, we will use different hardness or grain sizes for each job.
3WHICH COMPRESSED FIBER DISC IS SUITABLE TO MAKE A BRIGHT POLISH?
To make a brilliant polish with a compressed fiber disk, unitized disk or eraser disk, we will need a FINE grain with a density that is not very hard, so we can use a disk with a FINE grain with a hardness of 5 or 6. The revolutions per minute will be They are very important when polishing, as excessive revolutions will cause the nylon of the disc to burn and melt and stain the burned plastic and resin part. So we will always use this disc with a maximum of 4,000 RPM in a diameter of 115mm.
4WHAT IS THE RED COMPRESSED FIBER DISK FOR?
The compressed fiber disc red or unitized red or blue disc or eraser disc serve to remove the scratch of processes derived from roughing, leaving a roughness suitable for coating with COARSE or coarse grain. This disc is also suitable for grinding TIG welds on stainless steel. Thus with a single step we can rough a weld bead leaving an optimal roughness for a later satin finish.
5WHAT TYPES OF COMPRESSED FIBER WHEELS ARE THERE?
Compressed fiber, unitized or eraser wheels are manufactured in various formats, hardnesses and different grain sizes. It depends on each job, we will need a different grinding wheel to obtain an ideal finish.
Magic, unitized or eraser compressed fiber wheels are used for pre-gloss processes.
Red, unitized or eraser compressed fiber wheels are ideal for pre-glazing processes with coarse “COARSE” grain.
REBEL ONE compressed fiber wheels are manufactured in two types, one for steel and the other for stainless steel. These are used to remove wire welding, both in steel, aluminum and stainless steel. They leave a roughness lower than a grinding disc and have a high grinding power,
thus optimal for grinding processes prior to red or magic compressed fiber wheels, unitized or erasers.
