TWISTED WOOL POLISHING PADS for rotary polishers
Designed to provide impressive cutting speed, reduced risk of rotary swirls and improved process efficiency whilemaintaining a smooth, vibration-free, operator experience. The all new RUPES twisted natural wool pads for rotary are available in three sizes and are compatible with virtually all rotary polishing tools on the market today. Each RUPES twisted natural wool pad is constructed of a premium blend of 100% natural lamb’s wool and assembled with a precise strand length of 35mm. No synthetic fibers or fillers are used in the construction of the pad and each strand is steam set to ensure consistency and fastness of color. The RUPES’ twisted natural wool pads were developed to optimize the performance of RUPES Coarse Rotary Compound in an variety of applications and industries.
- Blend of various 100% natural lamb’s wool with 0% of synthetic fibers.
- Highly refined twisted strands ensure consistency across the entire pad surface
- Maximized fiber density for increased surface area and optimal performance
- Steam treated to set fibers and coloring after production
- Available in 3 different diameters to suit common rotary applications
WOOL POLISHING PADS
The new wool pad range is compatible the random orbital and the gear driven polishers included in the BigFoot family. The face of the wool pads is constructed of 100% natural fibers attached to a polyester backing material layer. Quality control for the wool is monitored through the entire manufacturing process to ensure consistency. The blue foam of the coarse wool pad is more rigid and dense which maximizes the translation of tool movement to the work surface, providing increased cutting power. The yellow foam of the medium wool pad is much more flexible to allow for improved control on curves and contours, as well as providing a softer support providing improved finishing ability.
All the pads in the coarse wool range are constructed using two distinct fiber lengths creating a dual density wool surface and a specific visible pattern. More than just an aesthetic detail, this configuration provides a great balance of cutting power and finishing ability when compared to traditional or single density wool pads.
Coarse or medium abrasive compounds (Zephir or Quarz) are recommended when coarse wool pads will be used with a free spinning random orbital such as the LHR15 or LHR21 tools. Mille Coarse abrasive compound is recommended when coarse wool pads will be used with the BigFoot Mille gear driven polisher.
YELLOW WOOL POLISHING PADS MEDIUM
The yellow medium wool pad range features a consistent 15mm fiber length through the entirety of the pads surface. This soft and flexible wool, paired with a soft and flexible yellow foam backing, provides excellent cutting of moderate defects, excellent finishing ability on most surfaces.
Coarse, medium, or fine abrasive compounds (Zephir, Quarz, or Keramik) are recommended when medium wool pads will be used with a free spinning random orbital such as the LHR15 or LHR21 tools. The selection of compound will depend on the work surface and severity of defects. Mille Coarse abrasive compound is recommended when medium wool pads will be used with the BigFoot Mille gear driven polisher.
