Abrasive mesh is an aluminium oxide abrasive bonded to a dense polyamide mesh. The result is an abrasive disk that doesn’t require cut-outs for dust extraction – particles are only ever 0.5mm from an extraction point and can be removed as soon as they are created.
Because waste particles are extracted near-instantaneously, the abrasive is able to make complete and even contact with the work surface. This allows Abranet to work quicker than other abrasives, avoiding gouges caused by trapped waste material. Since clogging and pilling are greatly reduced compared to non-mesh based abrasives, each Abrasive Mesh disk has a greatly extended lifespan. Because the mesh can be used over and over, it is an economical alternative to burning through large quantities of inferior abrasives
These are also great screens for shaping rails as they are really flexible.
