Cotton buffing discs consist of a multitude of plies of 100% pure raw cotton fabric. The plies are firmly stiched together with high quality linen threads. Due to the random alignment of the plies and their precise calibration, EICKELIT buffing wheels guarantee low-vibration concentricity and thus deliver an absolutely uniform polishing pattern.
Cotton buffing discs are standard tools that have been tried and tested for decades for all work steps on various material - from cut-buffing to a high-gloss finish. Thanks to our premium cotton types, these EICKELIT professional polishing discs are particularly effective and enable safe and dust-reduced work.

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.
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.
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.
Areas of Application
Cotton buffing discs are suitable as all-round buffing tools for all materials and finish levels, depending on the material to be buffed and the type of cotton chosen
Through adding concetric seams, the firmness of cotton buffing discs can be adjusted to individual needs. Quilted cotton buffing discs provide a sound counter pressure for particularly effective polishing
Quilted cotton buffing discs are preferably used for cut-buffing and high-gloss finish of steel and, in particular, of non-ferrous metals
Heat Build-up of Cotton Buffs
Due to their high performance with a comparatively low air flow, cotton buffing discs may build-up considerable amounts of frictional heat
This could lead to lokal overheating and thermal damage of workpiece surfaces and/or the fast and thus non economic consumption of the polishing disc through pyrolysis
In order to reduce the risk of the overheating of the workpiece and/or the buffing disc, you should adjust the contact pressure with particular care
Furthermore, you should pursuit the reduction of contact time with the workpiece to the absolute minimum necessary
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
