Trimming of Sisal Cut-Buffing Wheels
Careful preparation of the cut-buffing wheels is a prerequisite for an optimal polishing result. Please follow our recommendations for trimming sisal polishing discs:
- In the first step, the work surface and the edges of the polishing wheel are intensively roughened with a dressing brush or a nail board. The aim is to untangle the yarns of the sisal fabric and at the same time to round the work surface of the disc.
- Then carefully cut off the remaining tissue and thread protruding from the polishing surface with a scraper or scissors. The optimally dressed sisal polishing disc has a fiber velor with a thickness of approx. 5 mm on its work surface and is therefore optimally prepared for polishing.
Used sisal polishing discs should also be dressed again on a regular basis. This is especially true
- if sisal polishing discs are to be used again after a long period of storage
- if residues of polishing paste have solidified in the sisal polishing disc
- if the sisal polishing discs are heavily contaminated with material abrasion.
