Intermediate and general purpose polishing cloths

A selection of premium polishing cloths for coarse and fine polishing of hard, soft and composite materials. Most cloths are available with plain or PSA backing for easy mounting on the polishing platen. Plain polishing cloths need to be clamped on the edge of the polishing platen with a clamping ring. To facilitate this these cloths are approximately 2" larger than the polishing platen so that the cloth folds over the edge of the platen for clamping. 8" plain polishing cloths are 10" diameter and 10" plain polishing cloths are 12" diameter. Our polishing cloths can be used with diamond compound, diamond slurry / suspension, diamond spray, alumina suspension or colloidal silica.Intermediate & General Purpose Polishing ClothsCloths for intermediate to final polishing mediumAlpha-A: Plain and adhesive back.

Intermediate & General Purpose Polishing Cloths

Cloths for intermediate to final polishing medium

Alpha-A: Plain and adhesive back. Popular final polish, low nap cloth used with diamond or alumina for most materials.

Alpha-B: Low nap mylar backed variation of Alpha-A for final polishing of most materials, not used with alcohol thinners.

Selvyt: Plain back. Cotton medium nap used for first and final polishing of metals and ceramics with alumina.

HS PSA: Adhesive back. Satin weave acetate silk. Produces a good finish without edge rounding. Recommended for polishing of plastics.

NOTE: Cloths can be used in more than one stage of the polishing process, and some are included in more than one category. The best cloth for a given polishing step will depend on the particular process. The table above gives general guidelines, but for any polishing process, some experimentation will be needed.
