A flap wheel is made up of abrasive strips (flaps) radiating from a hub (center). Flap wheels come in many different shapes and sizes, with outside diameters ranging typically from 4" to 24".
Buffing wheels are the delivery mechanisms for apply polishing compound to items being buffed or polished. At Schaffner Manufacturing, we make a wide range of customized buffing wheels and pads for metal finishing.
Buffing compounds are made of tightly-sized abrasives held together with glue or grease binders. Different kinds of abrasives are used for finishing various materials such as ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastic and wood.
Woodworking Wheels are polyurethane foamed wheels with either Aluminium Oxide, Silicon Carbide or Garnet.
Convolute wheels feature abrasives for deburring, finishing, and polishing of metals or woods without breaking edges or removing material from the finish.
