Abrasive particles gets evenly distributed in the capillaries of felt, and as a result, evenly polish the required surface.
Sheep wool being one of the best resilient materials among natural fibres helps felt to polish every surface. It holds the desired edges and shape throughout the life of wheel.
As felt wears, new surface has identical medium of polishing compound as felt surface doesn't get glazed.
The ability to machine felt to close tolerances makes it possible to offer the exact felt profile required to match the profile of required part.
Less downtime on machine in comparison to built up wheels, during replacement.
Polishing Felt is available in various shapes, sizes and hardness made out of 100% fine micron sheep wool. Hardness is normally categorized in three densities. 0.50 GM/C3. (soft) 0.60 GM/C3. (medium) & 0.70 GM/C3. (Hard)
Wool Felt Wheels and Rings are used for Polishing, Buffing & Scratch removing on a wide variety of surfaces such as metals, plastic, marble, granite & glass. Polishing Felt cannot polish by themselves but they are efficient carriers of abrasive particles.
Felt Rings are extensively used in on the final section of beveling machines to polish the frosted surface of beveled glass to an optically clear finish.
For buffing, the most commonly used compounds are
S.S. Compound, and Emery paste.
For polishing, the Wool Felt wheel is headed with abrasive grain beginning from 120 grit to finer grit using hide glue or cement as matrix
