Synthetic felt SF-5

State-of-the-art technologies for polishing and stricter quality control make new types of pad materials and tools necessary. Our SF-5 series meets these higher demands.

The SF-5 series consists of a synthetic fibre matrix soaked in synthetic/epoxy resin. A particular pore structure enables the polishing agents to be absorbed entirely.

The excellent life-time of synthetic material is usually better compared to naturally-based products; accordingly, the productivity will increase when using SF-5 products.

Types available

Natural felts are subject to vary in their characteristics very much compared to SF-5 synthetic felts which have less grades concerning density and hardness.

Density and hardness result from the thickness of the fibres used as well as from the grade of soaking; fibre thickness and grade of soaking considerably influence the polishing process. SF-5 is available in two thicknesses: B-grade = smoother fibre, D-grade = rougher fibre. Combined with different grades of soaking a wide range of products is available for a variety of applications.
