Masterflex is a cotton fibre material pressed into a densely bonded form. The unique qualities of this material make it ideal for finishing stainless steel and other high alloys.
Master brand offers Masterflex products made in Master Abrasives' facility in Northamptonshire, UK.
The Master offering includes wheels, mounted points and sticks.
Two bond systems provide one with more aggressive stock removal (MTX) than the other (GFX). Both allow the abrasive grain within the bond to be effective at removing material whilst still delivering a good finish.
