Hilzinger-Thum has been making buffing and grinding tools for over 120 years and is one of the few companies recommended by Menzerna for buffing wheels. Using the highest quality raw materials available, Hilzinger America in Ohio continues their tradition by producing customized buffing wheels for Spectrum that boast enhanced durability, cleaner finishes in less time/fewer steps, and buffing wheels that retain their firmness throughout their life.
Non-Woven Airway buffs are designed for light to medium duty applications where coated abrasives are too aggressive or not applicable. The pleated design provides a more uniform finish than full disc wheels and help prevent rippling in your finish. Used to produce decorative finishes, remove parting lines, for light deburring, breaking edges, sealer sanding, and rust removal.
Pairs with: Non-woven abrasive buffs are not used with buffing compounds; the abrasive effect is (typically) achieved by aluminum oxide or silicon carbide abrasives that adheres to the webbing via globules of resin.
Non-woven abrasive buffing wheels do not need raking. Does not include a center reducer plate. Requires the use of a self-centering safety flange set or standard end flanges (ideally) in conjunction with a center reducer plate for proper mounting and safe operation. Industrial grade.
