The polishing wheel is composed of cellucotton, pigment, glue, plastic cover and sand. The sand material includes alumina oxide, white alumina oxide, black silicon carbide and green silicon carbide. Proportions between each sand type can be adjusted according to different customer needs, and the different materials feature a number of different advantages, as shown below.
Alumina oxide: affordable, sharp
White alumina oxide: sharper than alumina oxide, suitable for metals such as copper and aluminum
Black silicon carbide: abrasive resistant, high toughness, mostly used in soft and brittle materials such as glass, ceramic, stone, cast iron, non-ferrous metals and aluminum alloys.
Green silicon carbide: abrasive resistant, good self-sharpening, mostly used in machining hard alloys, titanium alloys, optical glass, stainless steel
The polishing wheel is applicable for metal surfaces polishing and the edge deburring. It is often used for surface polishing and mirror polishing of ceramics, marble, polished bricks and other stone industries. The polishing wheel can also be used for non-metallic surface polishing, such as deburring the furniture, wood crafts, resin crafts and so on.
We produce polishing wheels in a variety of sizes: 4”, 6”, 8”, 10” and 12”. For different purposes, we can also provide customized wheels according to customer requirements.
