GMX Cotton Fiber Abrasive for aluminum polishing
Product Announcement from Gesswein Co., Inc.
GMX cotton fiber products utilize a unique flexible latex bond with laminates of non-woven aluminum oxide abrasive-impregnated fabric. Laminations run parallel to the shank to prevent the ends from chipping. The construction continually exposes new abrasive grain for cooler running. The flexible bond allows for reduced vibration and chattering.
Unlike bonded or coated abrasives, GMX does not load up when working on softer metals or alloys such as aluminum. Cylinders and shapes can be dressed to conform to unique contours. Excellent for breaking edges, deburring, and blending on aluminum, stainless steel, and exotic alloys. GMX is also ideal for polishing mold runners and mold & die components.
All are on 1/8" shanks. (Available with 1/4" shank, 3mm and 6mm shanks by special order.)
