The backing is primarily used for work where the finish is more important than removal of material. Grinding cloth with a J-base is most often used in combination with softer contact wheels or grinding shoes at low pressure.

X-base

The X-backing is the most universal. It is used for both coarse and fine grit and is usually only suitable for dry use. The X-cotton, however, can also be treated so that it is water-resistant and can be used with cooling liquids. You will find these in the overview with the code X/W.

Y-base

This backing is heavier than the “H” version and is primarily used for highly demanding applications, where heavy to extremely heavy machining is required. This version can be used both wet and dry.

Polyester cotton

The last few years we have seen more and more backings consisting of a mixture of polyester and cotton. These backings exist in the “J”, and “J-Flex” versions, as well as the “X”. Generally, they are less sensitive to stretching and they are better suited to resisting tearing than the same type of cotton bases.

 
 

Paper

The weight of the paper is an important factor in determining the flexibility and the resistance against tears. The weight is shown by the letters “A” through “F”, with “A” standing for the lightest paper and “F” for the heaviest.

A-paper

80-85 gr/m²: light and flexible. Is only used with manual applications, both wet and dry and for finer grit types (grit 150 and finer).

B-paper

90-105 gr/m²: is not used very often any more.

C-paper

110-125 gr/m²: is less flexible than A-paper and is used, amongst other things, for manual applications. Usually, we find C-paper with velcro for use on light hand machines (discs, sheets, deltas).

D-paper

150-180 gr/m²: this paper has a reasonably strong backing and is generally used for light hand grinding machines or for manual grinding.

E-paper

220-250 gr/m²: this paper with a tough backing is fairly resistant to tearing and, until recently, was the standard for use in heavier applications, such as. discs, belts and wide belts.

F-paper

250-300 gr/m²: E-paper seems to be gradually disappearing and is being replaced by an F-base, certainly with coarser grit types. This backing is ideally suited for heavier applications and wide belts.

 

Film

 Cotton and polyesterCotton and polyester bases are reasonably tear-resistant and durable. For that reason, they are mainly recommended for use with heavier and/or specific technical applications. Their properties are indicated with a letter.F-baseThis backing is highly flexible and is primarily used for manual applications, in the shape of rolls or sheets.H-baseThis is a polyester backing with an average hardness. Polyester is very difficult to tear, it is resistant to heavier loads and can be used both wet and dry. It is a very stable base.J-flex and J-baseThis is a highly flexible cloth, but with specific technical properties for use in continual grinding belts. The backing is primarily used for work where the finish is more important than removal of material. Grinding cloth with a J-base is most often used in combination with softer contact wheels or grinding shoes at low pressure.X-baseThe X-backing is the most universal. It is used for both coarse and fine grit and is usually only suitable for dry use. The X-cotton, however, can also be treated so that it is water-resistant and can be used with cooling liquids. You will find these in the overview with the code X/W.Y-baseThis backing is heavier than the “H” version and is primarily used for highly demanding applications, where heavy to extremely heavy machining is required. This version can be used both wet and dry.Polyester cottonThe last few years we have seen more and more backings consisting of a mixture of polyester and cotton.

Cotton and polyester

Cotton and polyester bases are reasonably tear-resistant and durable. For that reason, they are mainly recommended for use with heavier and/or specific technical applications. Their properties are indicated with a letter.

F-base

This backing is highly flexible and is primarily used for manual applications, in the shape of rolls or sheets.

H-base

This is a polyester backing with an average hardness. Polyester is very difficult to tear, it is resistant to heavier loads and can be used both wet and dry. It is a very stable base.

J-flex and J-base

This is a highly flexible cloth, but with specific technical properties for use in continual grinding belts. The backing is primarily used for work where the finish is more important than removal of material. Grinding cloth with a J-base is most often used in combination with softer contact wheels or grinding shoes at low pressure.

X-base

The X-backing is the most universal. It is used for both coarse and fine grit and is usually only suitable for dry use. The X-cotton, however, can also be treated so that it is water-resistant and can be used with cooling liquids. You will find these in the overview with the code X/W.

Y-base

This backing is heavier than the “H” version and is primarily used for highly demanding applications, where heavy to extremely heavy machining is required. This version can be used both wet and dry.

Polyester cotton

The last few years we have seen more and more backings consisting of a mixture of polyester and cotton. These backings exist in the “J”, and “J-Flex” versions, as well as the “X”. Generally, they are less sensitive to stretching and they are better suited to resisting tearing than the same type of cotton bases.

 
 

Paper

The weight of the paper is an important factor in determining the flexibility and the resistance against tears. The weight is shown by the letters “A” through “F”, with “A” standing for the lightest paper and “F” for the heaviest.

A-paper

80-85 gr/m²: light and flexible. Is only used with manual applications, both wet and dry and for finer grit types (grit 150 and finer).

B-paper

90-105 gr/m²: is not used very often any more.

C-paper

D-paper

150-180 gr/m²: this paper has a reasonably strong backing and is generally used for light hand grinding machines or for manual grinding.

E-paper

220-250 gr/m²: this paper with a tough backing is fairly resistant to tearing and, until recently, was the standard for use in heavier applications, such as. discs, belts and wide belts.

F-paper

250-300 gr/m²: E-paper seems to be gradually disappearing and is being replaced by an F-base, certainly with coarser grit types. This backing is ideally suited for heavier applications and wide belts.

 

Film

Recently, new grades have appeared with a film bottom layer. The film bottom layer is very similar to the C paper in terms of flexibility. The film material, however, can be used either wet or dry and it is highly tear resistant.

 

Fiber

This backing is made from multiple layers of impregnated paper. Fibre is reasonably inflexible, hard and tear-resistant. It is primarily used for the production of grinding discs. In the production of abrasives with a coarser grit where a heavier and faster action is important, a thickness of 0.08 mm is used. For finer grit, thicknesses up to 0.65 mm are current, but Cibo discs always are 0.8 mm thick. Fibre discs always have to be used with a suitable back-up pad.

 

Combination

Combination bases consist of E or F paper reinforced with a light film to prevent tearing. A combination of grades is most often used in coarse grit with an open grit structure, for the grinding of old floors and parquet. In addition, wide belts are used in the chipboard industry.

 

Mesh

Mesh is an open polyester web structure to which grit is anchored on both sides. Due to its unique structure, this material is not easily saturated. It is therefore very suitable for the grinding of paints, lacquers, varnishes, filler,…

The X-backing is the most universal. It is used for both coarse and fine grit and is usually only suitable for dry use. The X-cotton, however, can also be treated so that it is water-resistant and can be used with cooling liquids. You will find these in the overview with the code X/W.

Y-base

This backing is heavier than the “H” version and is primarily used for highly demanding applications, where heavy to extremely heavy machining is required. This version can be used both wet and dry.

Polyester cotton

The last few years we have seen more and more backings consisting of a mixture of polyester and cotton. These backings exist in the “J”, and “J-Flex” versions, as well as the “X”. Generally, they are less sensitive to stretching and they are better suited to resisting tearing than the same type of cotton bases.

 
 

Paper

The weight of the paper is an important factor in determining the flexibility and the resistance against tears. The weight is shown by the letters “A” through “F”, with “A” standing for the lightest paper and “F” for the heaviest.

A-paper

80-85 gr/m²: light and flexible. Is only used with manual applications, both wet and dry and for finer grit types (grit 150 and finer).

 Cotton and polyesterCotton and polyester bases are reasonably tear-resistant and durable. For that reason, they are mainly recommended for use with heavier and/or specific technical applications. Their properties are indicated with a letter.F-baseThis backing is highly flexible and is primarily used for manual applications, in the shape of rolls or sheets.H-baseThis is a polyester backing with an average hardness. Polyester is very difficult to tear, it is resistant to heavier loads and can be used both wet and dry. It is a very stable base.J-flex and J-baseThis is a highly flexible cloth, but with specific technical properties for use in continual grinding belts. The backing is primarily used for work where the finish is more important than removal of material. Grinding cloth with a J-base is most often used in combination with softer contact wheels or grinding shoes at low pressure.X-baseThe X-backing is the most universal. It is used for both coarse and fine grit and is usually only suitable for dry use. The X-cotton, however, can also be treated so that it is water-resistant and can be used with cooling liquids. You will find these in the overview with the code X/W.Y-baseThis backing is heavier than the “H” version and is primarily used for highly demanding applications, where heavy to extremely heavy machining is required. This version can be used both wet and dry.Polyester cottonThe last few years we have seen more and more backings consisting of a mixture of polyester and cotton.

Cotton and polyester

Cotton and polyester bases are reasonably tear-resistant and durable. For that reason, they are mainly recommended for use with heavier and/or specific technical applications. Their properties are indicated with a letter.

F-base

This backing is highly flexible and is primarily used for manual applications, in the shape of rolls or sheets.

H-base

This is a polyester backing with an average hardness. Polyester is very difficult to tear, it is resistant to heavier loads and can be used both wet and dry. It is a very stable base.

J-flex and J-base

This is a highly flexible cloth, but with specific technical properties for use in continual grinding belts. The backing is primarily used for work where the finish is more important than removal of material. Grinding cloth with a J-base is most often used in combination with softer contact wheels or grinding shoes at low pressure.

X-base

The X-backing is the most universal. It is used for both coarse and fine grit and is usually only suitable for dry use. The X-cotton, however, can also be treated so that it is water-resistant and can be used with cooling liquids. You will find these in the overview with the code X/W.

Y-base

This backing is heavier than the “H” version and is primarily used for highly demanding applications, where heavy to extremely heavy machining is required. This version can be used both wet and dry.

Polyester cotton

The last few years we have seen more and more backings consisting of a mixture of polyester and cotton. These backings exist in the “J”, and “J-Flex” versions, as well as the “X”. Generally, they are less sensitive to stretching and they are better suited to resisting tearing than the same type of cotton bases.

 
 

Paper

The weight of the paper is an important factor in determining the flexibility and the resistance against tears. The weight is shown by the letters “A” through “F”, with “A” standing for the lightest paper and “F” for the heaviest.

A-paper

80-85 gr/m²: light and flexible. Is only used with manual applications, both wet and dry and for finer grit types (grit 150 and finer).

B-paper

90-105 gr/m²: is not used very often any more.

C-paper

110-125 gr/m²: is less flexible than A-paper and is used, amongst other things, for manual applications. Usually, we find C-paper with velcro for use on light hand machines (discs, sheets, deltas).

D-paper

150-180 gr/m²: this paper has a reasonably strong backing and is generally used for light hand grinding machines or for manual grinding.

E-paper

220-250 gr/m²: this paper with a tough backing is fairly resistant to tearing and, until recently, was the standard for use in heavier applications, such as. discs, belts and wide belts.

F-paper

250-300 gr/m²: E-paper seems to be gradually disappearing and is being replaced by an F-base, certainly with coarser grit types. This backing is ideally suited for heavier applications and wide belts.

 

Film

Recently, new grades have appeared with a film bottom layer. The film bottom layer is very similar to the C paper in terms of flexibility. The film material, however, can be used either wet or dry and it is highly tear resistant.

 

Fiber

This backing is made from multiple layers of impregnated paper. Fibre is reasonably inflexible, hard and tear-resistant. It is primarily used for the production of grinding discs. In the production of abrasives with a coarser grit where a heavier and faster action is important, a thickness of 0.08 mm is used. For finer grit, thicknesses up to 0.65 mm are current, but Cibo discs always are 0.8 mm thick. Fibre discs always have to be used with a suitable back-up pad.

 

Combination

Combination bases consist of E or F paper reinforced with a light film to prevent tearing. A combination of grades is most often used in coarse grit with an open grit structure, for the grinding of old floors and parquet. In addition, wide belts are used in the chipboard industry.

 

Mesh

Mesh is an open polyester web structure to which grit is anchored on both sides. Due to its unique structure, this material is not easily saturated. It is therefore very suitable for the grinding of paints, lacquers, varnishes, filler,…
