Grinding, cleaning hand pads
Milwaukee, Wisconsin – Polinox hand pads from Pferd offer a versatile and cost- effective answer to a 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 flexible, enabling optimal adjustment to the contour of the workpiece, alowing 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. They are 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, the 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 durable and resist tearing and fraying. Excellent for removal of oxidation, weld cleaning, deburring, and finishing stainless steel and aluminum.
White-colored hand pads contains no abrasive and are 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.
Gray-colored pads have an ultra-fine silicon carbide that provides a precise, fine cutting action suited for light cleaning and fine finishing on a variety of material including metal, plastic, glass, and wood.
