EICKELIT flap wheels are constructed from a large number of single flaps of a nylon nonwoven with firmly bonded abrasives. They are suitable for cleaning, fine grinding, satin and matt finishing of non-ferrous metals and steels as well as a wide variety of other fields of application. We offer a large standard range of abrasive fleece types based on aluminum oxide or silicon carbide with different strengths and grain sizes to optimize desired results according to our customers' individual specifications.
Selectable grit sizes from "Extra Coarse" to "Ultra Fine" (grit 45 - grit 600 [CAMI])
Core made of cardboard or hard paper tube, encapsulated with thermosetting synthetic resin compound
Diameters 150 - 400 mm (larger diameters on request)
Widths from 30 - 60 mm (wider rollers on request)
Bore Holes 10 - 60 mm (hollow cores in standard industrial dimensions on request)
Configurable in 4 ascending degrees of strength:
H0: Low density, soft, flexible and adaptable, for easy processing of profiled workpieces with complex surface geometry
H3: Medium density, high flexibility and adaptability, with increased resistance to clogging
H5: High density, higher hardness and lower flexibility, resulting in increased service life and aggressiveness
H7: Very high density, extreme hardness for high loads and strong aggressiveness
In the manufacture of abrasive nonwovens, abrasives such as silicon carbide or aluminum oxide are firmly bonded to a nylon nonwoven by synthetic resins. Consequently, the strength and cooling effect of the abrasive fleece depends largely on the fiber strength, the fleece density and the physico-chemical properties of the binders in use
Due to its open structure, abrasive nonwovens are self-cleaning and therefore do not clog during polishing. In addition, the chemical and physical resistance of the synthetic fiber composite also allows wet use together with aqueous or oily media
Due to the flexibility of the nonwoen, even complex profiles and geometries can be efficiently processed, providing gentle material removal
Because of the constant wear and tear of the backing material, fresh abrasives are constantly released in uniform concentrations on the tool's surface. This is why polishing tools made of nonwovens are particularly low-maintenance and thus provide a very uniform finish over their entire service life
In contrast to corundum (aluminum oxide / AlOx), the carborundum (silicon carbide / SiC) used in abrasive fleece consists of very sharp-edged crystals. This is the best choice when the fundamentally harder and more brittle properties of SiC are required because the SiC abrasive grains consist of only a few crystallites with a precisely adjusted size distribution. As a result, abrasive nonwovens based on SiC are sharper compared to aluminum oxide and provide more effective removal. The industry uses abrasive fleece based on SiC due to its hardness, especially on non-ferrous metals, stainless tool steels and ceramic and mineral materials.
Abrasive Non-Woven SC-006
The silicon carbide abrasive in SC-006 corresponds to grit 240 and provides a fine structured polishing image
The abrasive fleece SC-006 has a medium firm texture

Areas of Application
Non-woven polishing tools are suitable for the surface treatment of metal (steel, INOX, non-ferrous metals and alloys) and non-metal surfaces (plastics, paints, wood, etc.)
Their wide area of application includes for instance cleaning, descaling, deburring, fine grinding, roughening, matting, satin finishing, etc.
New abrasive fleece polishing tools must first be carefully run in until a uniform finish is achieved
In order to avoid overheating and a subsequent disturbance of the surface structure that is difficult to correct afterwards, abrasive fleece polishing tools should be operated with as moderate to low pressure as possible
Basically, the rule applies that a lower cutting speed produces a coarser matting image
The following guide values apply to the typical cutting speeds of non-woven abrasive polishing tools:
