Superior Abrassives seamless wheels are ideal for blemish removal, flash removal from non-metallic composites, gear and thread cleaning & micro-deburringClick image to enlargeSuperior Abrasives’ Shur-Brite mounted seamless satin finishing wheels have a seamless structure for de-polishing and matte finishing without harsh and visible transition lines.

Made without a scrim reinforcement, the satin finishing materials are lighter, more pliable, and conformable than other non-woven materials. 

Suitable for wet or dry applications, they are resistant to loading, and produce consistent performance throughout their extended life.  They are available with .25-in. shank, 2-in. width, and 3-in. or 4-in. diameter, in medium, fine, and very fine grades. 

Aluminum oxide grains provide long life and withstand high pressure in general purpose applications. Silicon carbide grains provide a fast cut and uniform finish, with a sharper, finer cut. Slower speeds provide better finishing results, between 3,000 to 4,000 RPM.  

These are ideal for use on ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless materials needing blemish removal, flash removal from non-metallic composites, gear and thread cleaning and micro-deburring, stainless steel cleaning and grain finishing, and reducing or blending fine scratch patterns, all without undesired transition lines.

Also available in Flap and Duplex Brushes for angle grinders, using an integrated, toolless threaded hub for fast changeover.
