Cotton Buffing Discs

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.


  • Raw cotton molton fabric, 100% pure
  • Thickness 25 mm / working diameter 250 mm
  • Bores 17 - 65 mm can be freely selected with the configurator
  • Three easy-to-remove concentric stitching seams made from pure linen thread without synthetic fibers
  • Fabric layers in random alignment, discs calibrated for concentricity without vibrations
  • Pre-roughened for immediate use (optional)
  • Buffing Discs suitable for the stationary polishing stand
  • Vmax = 40 m/s, rmax = 3.100 min-1

Flannel FM230

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.

Cotton 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.

Please follow our link for more information on our cotton fabrics.

Bore Holes

  • 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.

** Observe safety regulations for the minimum diameter of drive shafts!

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
