Coated, Non-Woven & Bonded Abrasives

Coated, non-woven and bonded abrasives are formed when an abrasive grain (often referred to as sandpaper) is bonded to flexible material such as paper, cloth, film, or vulcanized fiber.

Coated Abrasives

Coated abrasives consist of a backing material such as paper, cotton or polyester cloth, film, or vulcanized fiber that an abrasive grain is boded to, to create what is often referred to as “sandpaper”.

Non-woven Abrasives

Non-woven abrasives feature an abrasive grit that is suspended in non-woven, nylon fibers and bonded with synthetic resins.

Bonded Abrasives

Bonded abrasives are manufactured by bonding abrasive grains into a solid form such as a depressed center grinding wheel and cut off wheels.
