Abrasives are used to create sufficient roughness required
to give a good key and perfect adherence of coatings (enamelling
plastics, rubber bonding, paint, metallisation, re-coating).
This process is designed to improve the fatigue strength
of products which suffer variable stresses in use (e.g., springs,
torsion bars and stabilisers. con-rods, gears, turbines, shafts).
Abrasives are used for cleaning ferrous or non ferrous alloys;
products from forging, stamping, die-forging, drawing and
rolling or after beat treatment (e.g., pipes, sections, plates,
This process is utilised on any type of general fabrication
where size and shape make wheel blasting inappropriate.
Abrasives are used for the removal of burrs arising during
injection moulding of metallic products (e.g., aluminium alloys,
Abrasives are used for the aesthetic treatment of some materials
(e.g., engraving on glass, artificial ageing of wood).
