FAB (fixed abrasive buff) buffing wheels virtually eliminate the need to use buffing compounds. They feature a patent-pending design that incorporates abrasive grains into the buffing wheel and consistently results in excellent single-digit Ra values (ranging from 1 to 5 Ra). Tear-resistant and waterproof, FAB wheels provide significantly longer life than traditional cotton buffs. Due to a decreased need for buffing compound, they offer a more efficient, cleaner and safer way of buffing. Without the requirements to purchase, apply, clean up and dispose of large amounts of compound, costs are minimized. In addition, less buffing compound improves worksite safety and reduces the environmental impact of compound disposal. FAB wheels can be easily incorporated into new or existing robotic buffing applications.
