    VERSATILE POLINOX® HAND PADS FROM PFERD HANDLE A WIDE ARRAY OF GRINDING AND CLEANING NEEDS

    From small to large surfaces and contours, PFERD’s POLINOX® hand pads permit cost effective manual cleaning of metal and painted surfaces.

    Milwaukee—POLINOX® hand pads from PFERD are a versatile and cost- effective answer to a wide range of grinding and cleaning needs. Suitable for very fine grinding on small to large surfaces and contours, and for manually cleaning metal and painted surfaces, they are highly flexible, enabling optimal adjustment to the contour of the workpiece. This allows users to access hard-to-reach areas.

    The pads can achieve matte and satin-finished surfaces and can be used for wet or dry grinding. Well suited for light deburring work, corrosion removal, cleaning jobs in tool and mold-making, and fine grinding/patterning of stainless steel. Made from non-woven material with a highly open structure impregnated with either aluminum oxide A or silicon carbide SiC grain, PFERD hand pads, which can be supplied in bulk quantities, follow industry-standard color coding for easy selection.

    Maroon-colored general-purpose pads are the most widely used of all hand pads. Their aluminum oxide grain is noted for its toughness and durability on tasks such as cleaning, deburring, rust removal, blending and finishing.

    Green-colored pads are general purpose grade pads made with aluminum oxide. Commonly, though not exclusively, used in the food service industry, these pads are recommended for light duty and finishing applications.

    Tan-colored heavy-duty pads consist of a dense aluminum oxide grain concentration on heavy backing material. Designed for the most severe applications, they are extremely durable and resist tearing and fraying. Excellent for removal of oxidation, weld cleaning, deburring, and finishing stainless steel and aluminum.

    The white-colored hand pad contains no abrasive. It is used primarily for applying lubricants, detergents, polishes, etc. to almost any material. Commonly used for cleaning plastics, glass, ceramics, porcelain, chrome, copper and stainless steel.

    And finally, the gray-colored pad is an ultra-fine silicon carbide pad that provides a precise, fine cutting action. Well suited for light cleaning and fine finishing on a variety of material including metal, plastic, glass and wood.

    PFERD INC. is the U.S. subsidiary of August Rüggeberg GmbH & Co. of Marienheide, Germany. As a global manufacturer of abrasives, brushes and power tools, PFERD offers a comprehensive line of products and services for metal cutting and surface conditioning. With over 200 years of experience in developing innovative products that optimize productivity, achieve economic efficiencies and improve operator health and safety – customers around the world TRUST BLUE.

    Milwaukee—PFERD has introduced its CC-GRIND®-FLEX, the next generation of semi-flexible grinding discs. This high-performance disc blends weld seams on large surfaces without leaving dents or bumps typical of a rough grinding wheel or fiber disc. When using the CC-GRIND®-FLEX, an absolutely flat surface can be achieved.

    This complete smoothing of butt welds – without dents or bumps – is made possible by an innovative design that integrates a layered fiberglass backer with a high-performance coated abrasive. The geometry of the cooling slits ensures high air flow. This reduces the thermal load on the grinding discs and workpiece.

    The CC-GRIND®-FLEX, a semi-flexible version of the CC-GRIND®-SOLID is available in 4-1/2 in. and 5 in. dia. with 7/8 in. bore. Coarse grit with its highly aggressive abrasive for increased stock removal or a fine grit to produce a superior finish are available. The new disc provides up to 50% less noise and vibration during use when compared to a conventional grinding disc, with less risk of gouging and is designed for weld blending on both flat and curved surfaces.

    For use on steel, the new CC-GRIND®-FLEX is ideally suited for automotive and trailer manufacturing to blend butt welds in fenders; as well as in power generation for water chute production. Other applications include; general metal fabrication (machine guards, security gates, etc.); maintenance and repair operations; as well as other butt-weld grinding applications.

    PFERD INC. is the U.S. subsidiary of August Rüggeberg GmbH & Co. of Marienheide, Germany.  As a global manufacturer of abrasives, brushes and power tools, PFERD offers a comprehensive line of products and services for metal cutting and surface conditioning.  With over 200 years of experience in developing innovative products that optimize productivity, achieve economic efficiencies and improve operator health and safety –- customers around the world TRUST BLUE.
