EFFEKTA® Buffing Wheels

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.

Our shank tools are miniature versions of the tried and tested EICKELIT designs. They complement the buffing process when it comes to the precise cut-buffing and finishing, particularly of surfaces with complex geometries.

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.

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
