EICKELIT abrasive fleece shank tools are made of random fleece nylon with firmly bonded abrasive grain. Fleece shank tools are particularly suitable for cleaning, fine grinding, matting and satin finishing of steel and non-ferrous metals. With our wide range of abrasive fleeces based on aluminum oxide or silicon carbide with different strengths and grain sizes, we answer a wide variety of application-related requirements from our customers .
Thanks to the great flexibility of the tangled fleece, complex profiles and geometries in particular can be processed very efficiently and with very gentle removal with fleece shank tools. In the process, the backing material is constantly being worn down, so fresh grinding particles are constantly being released in uniform concentrations on the tool surface. That's why polishing tools made of fiber abrasive fleece are particularly low-maintenance and provide a very uniform grinding pattern over their entire service life.

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:
