Hermes VC 154-Longlife discs for sanding composites
The need to meet stringent technical requirements on materials, together with the need to reduce weight, do away with susceptibility to corrosion and ensure that material can be machined and finished comparatively easily, have significantly increased the use of composites in many branches of industry in recent years.
These materials put very high and very specific demands on sanding and on the abrasives used. In particular, efficient sanding in terms of both time and cost is an essential prerequisite in the production of rotor blades for wind power plants and in the production and repair of glass fibre-reinforced plastic boats and yachts, as well as in aviation.
Hermes velour-backed VC 154-Longlife discs meet these specific requirements. The great performance potential of this Hermes product is clearly shown, not only by its very high stock removal rates when sanding hard materials like cured glass fibre-reinforced plastic surfaces, for example, or components made of very hard sheet-moulded compound in the automotive industry – this Hermes type also demonstrates its strengths when sanding materials which rapidly clog tools, such as non-cured surfaces and resins, for example. It is in these applications, in particular, that the patented MULTIHOLE variant (European patent EP 0781629/US patent 5,810,650) with dust extraction across its entire surface shows the strengths of this product to full advantage.
Product benefits you will appreciate:
- Sharp semi-pure aluminium oxide grain for long tool lives and high stock removal rates
- Flexible but wear-resistant latex paper backing for a highly adaptable product
- Semi-open coating with added active ingredient for reduced clogging
- Even stock removal rates and consistent surface structures and roughness depths throughout the whole sanding process
