Metabo Corp. has introduced a line of pyramid-design abrasives. The new aluminum oxide abrasives feature a 3-D-structured geometric grain placement that allows finer grit sizes to remove more material while giving work surfaces a consistent, even finish. According to the manufacturer, users can skip certain intermediary grit sizes to achieve the final finish faster.
Available in 120, 280, 400, 600, 1200, and 2000 grit in both belt and hook-and-loop designs, the abrasives are suitable for use with the company's RBE12-180 pipe and tube sander, SE12-115 burnisher, and WE14-125 INOX angle grinder. They can also be used with other metalworking tools.
The abrasives are suitable for use on stainless steels, carbon steels, aluminum, and other soft metals.
