Abralon® is a unique, multifunctional sanding material developed for tackling both smooth and profiled surfaces. Its patented, flexible construction allows it to create a smooth sanding pattern on angled surfaces and edges while minimizing the risk of pressure marks. The flexible weave also allows water and air to pass freely, making it suitable for both dry and wet sanding, by machine or by hand.

The open cell structure is used to keep the water in Abralon® during the sanding operation. The water is not thrown out and a smaller amount of liquid can be used. The foam provides an even surface pressure to the abrasive fabric regardless of the form variations of the sanded material. This prevents the abrasive fabric from cutting through the lacquer layer, for example at sharp edges and roundings.

The perfect sanding and processing material with versatile application possibilities on surfaces such as new and old lacquers, plastics, primers and fillers, Abralon® is used for conditioning a surface either as a pre-treatment prior to painting and lacquering, for removing oxides or for giving a visually attractive surface structure. Abralon® is mainly used with wet sanding, but can also be used as dry in coarser grits.
