CRATEX ABRASIVE TYPE
The abrasive type used in Cratex Rubberized Abrasives is premium quality Silicon Carbide that has been washed, dried and treated to remove impurities and then carefully screened to U.S. Department of Commerce standards for size. Although Silicon Carbide is more expensive than other abrasive materials, it is used because it has a high level of purity and has been found to be best for the broadest range of light deburring, smoothing, cleaning and polishing applications on ferrous and non-ferrous alloys as well as many non-metallics, such as glass.
CRATEX STANDARD BOND
The Cratex Bond common to each of the four Grit Textures is made with premium grade, oil-resistant chemical rubber. In contrast to conventional grinding wheels, the Cratex Bond has unique cushioned action - cuts freely, smoothly and softly without gouging or digging into the work surface. It resists clogging and smearing and is ideal for a broad range of applications where metallic or non-metallic surfaces must be smoothed and polished without loss of dimensional tolerances or control.
LIGHT DEBURRING and smoothing to relieve stress concentrations and to remove visible and microscopic burrs without impacting surrounding areas.
CLEANING and polishing to remove undesirable surface deposits
SMOOTHING and polishing to improve wearing qualities and to reduce the dangers of progressive fracture and fatigue failure
POLISHING and smoothing to improve performance, appearance, cleanliness and to lessen the dangers of surface contamination
Each Cratex size and shape is made in four standard Grit Textures or compositions which differ in accordance with the mesh size of the abrasive grain used.
