EFFEKTA buffing wheels are high-performance tools for finish-buffing. They are constructed of multiple pleated plies of raw cotton fabric, which ensures a good cooling effect with a very high finish-buffing performance. The soft pleats perfectly adapt to complex surface geometries and provide for random contact patterns. Therefore, EFFEKTA buffing wheels produce particularly uniform surface qualities.
For finish-buffing of particularly sensitive high-gloss surfaces, we manufacture our EFFEKTA polishing discs with high-quality molton trimmings exclusively in 100% seams-free quality.
For our professional polishing discs, we only use Oeko-Tex® certified fabrics made from raw cotton from controlled cultivation areas. All our cotton cretonnes in plain weave are 100% free from synthetic fibers. For this reason, our polishing discs wear out evenly and are particularly low in dust.
Very soft buffing wheel made of premium raw cotton fabrics with 45° biased weave
24 individually pleated plies
100% seams-free for highest mirror gloss
Diameter 150 to 600 mm
Individual bore from 10 - 60 mm (custom-made products possible on request)
Calibrated for low-vibration concentricity
Optionally pre-roughened ready for use
Flannel (also called Molleton) is a type of fabric that is made from heavy raw cotton nettle. Through roughening, the fabric structure is specifically weakened, creating a very soft and flexible material with a fine microfiber velor. At the same time, remnants of the abrasive natural impurities are brushed from the raw cotton fabric.
Flannel FM230 is a raw cotton cretonne finely roughened on both sides with a specific weight of approx. 190 g/m². Polishing discs made of flannel FM230 are used in particular for high-gloss polishing on non-ferrous metals, varnish and plastics.
*Observe safety regulations for the minimum diameter of drive shafts!
We manufacture your desired bore individually for you. We cover every known bore diameter for industrial polishing machines *
If you need other bore diameters or special adapters (e.g. for hexagonal shafts, with keyways, etc.), we will be happy to manufacture them on request **
* Polishing discs drilled individually at the customer's request are excluded from exchange or return in accordance with our Terms of Cancellation.
EFFEKTA high-performance buffing wheels with extra soft pleats are particularly suitable for high-end finishing of complex surface geometries of sensitive painted surfaces, including non-ferrous metals and stainless steel.
The very soft, single-layer folds adapt flexibly to any surface geometry, allowing to deeply immerse the workpieces into the disc. Even with extended contact zones, thanks to the EFFEKTA pleats a performant airstream and thus very effective cooling is ensured.
EFFEKTA buffing wheels offer a particularly even high gloss, especially in combination with our 100% seams-free technology.
Heat Development of EFFEKTA Buffing Wheels
Due to their large contact surface, EFFEKTA buffing wheels develop significant frictional heat. With its powerful air flow, EFFEKTA can efficiently remove this excess heat from the work piece
Materials with low thermal conductivity (e.g. plastics, wood, etc.) tend to quickly overheat. This can be avoided by carefully dosing the immersion depth and polishing time
Trimming Cotton Buffing Wheels
Careful preparation of the buffing / polishing tool is a prerequisite for an optimal surface result. Please follow our recommendations for trimming cotton buffing wheels
Used buffing discs should also be dressed again on a regular basis. This is especially true if residues of polishing paste have solidified on the working surface or the buffing wheels are heavily contaminated with material abrasion
