Composite type finishing Wheel

  • Composed of coated abrasive cloth flaps interleaved with abrasive impregnated nylon pads.
  • These wheels are not comparable to the flap wheels composed of coated abrasive cloth flaps.
  • For the finishing work, they provide at once an even surface and a satin appearance often hard to obtain otherwise.
  • Their great flexibility facilitates the finishing work on all shaped pieces.
  • These wheels are used dry, are completely safe for the user and reduce manufacturing time often in large proportions.
  • Flap finishing wheels

These wheels are composed of abrasive impregnated nylon flaps:

  • Satin finish on stainless steel, copper, brass, steel, aluminum, tin;
  • Decorative items;
  • Light tarnishing of paint, polyester, wood;
  • Maintenance of public equipment, escalators, railings.

Manufacture and processing of abrasive belts:

We produce, process or distribute different types of tapes, whether short and narrow tapes, wide tapes or abrasive sleeves and long tapes. These products are available on canvas or paper supports. They are suitable for grinding welding cords, deburring, grinding of cast parts, polishing of defects to obtain a perfect finish.

E.E: At what stage is the market where you are currently active?

EXTROM: Extrom got through the Corona virus health crisis with a controlled impact. Indeed, some industrial sectors are booming and Extrom has been able to support them. We are constantly evolving in the development of our ranges of products, tools, accessories and machines for the fields of steel, construction and wood, in order to best meet the expectations of our customers both from a technical and logistical point of view.

E.E: What can you tell us about market trends?

EXTROM: Beyond the quality and performance of the products we offer, the other trends of the current market are to reduce the time and manufacturing costs for our users, to ensure the safety of operators and to reduce the environmental impact.

Another major trend is automation and robotics for precision deburring, polishing and sanding. Deburring is too often neglected or little effort is put into improving it.

On the other hand, for certain high-tech fields such as aeronautics, the manufactured parts make it possible to improve and optimize the deburring stage. There is then a great interest in improving this operation to ensure the quality of the product until the last operation, especially when it comes to precision deburring.

At Extrom sales specialists are specially trained to meet the requirements of this type of need. In addition, a last important detail: there is a reversal in the trend of job losses due to the development of this robotization. On the other hand, this development contributes to the creation of new jobs.

We also saw a good trend on wireless equipment, power tools with «multi volt» rechargeable batteries. These allow professionals to significantly increase the performance of their wireless machines and thus achieve huge time savings.

E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed?

EXTROM: Diamond products: technical abrasives are constantly evolving and thus meet the expectations of our customers faced with increasingly technical materials.

E.E: What estimations do you have for 2021?

EXTROM: The year 2021 is marked by a recovery of the world economy. Supply and logistics disruptions create constraints for our customers. Extrom makes and has made every effort to ensure the production and delivery of products to its customers within an acceptable time and price.
