Abrasive cloth, emery cloths

Abrasive cloth consists of various materials and layers. A base coat is applied to a base substrate or a polyester base. This base will then be sprinkled with the abrasive grain defined. The grains will then be aligned on the base by using electrostatics. As the next step, a size coat will be applied that can also be covered by a grinding aid if desired.

There are different versions of the types of fabrics used that are differentiated in terms of their weight, their adaptability and their tensile strength.

For emery cloths, the base substrate is made of a cotton fabric and for sandpaper, the base substrate is made of an appropriate paper.

Aluminium oxide and silicon carbide are the standard grains used as abrasive grains here. For special applications, zirconium corundum, ceramic corundum or even diamond are also used.

Abrasive cloth is applied to a cardboard, plastic, wooden or waterproof impregnated paper tube base for the production of a grinding tool.


If the abrasive cloth is folded into a V shape (grinding belt-V ring), this results in a flexible tool, using which hard to access areas, joints, covings, recesses and gaps can be treated.

The properties of these tools are defined by the trim materials, the density of lamellae and the impregnation.
