Innovation Alu Grinding Protection

Alu Grinding Protection


WEICON Alu Grinding Protection works like a cooling lubricant and separating agent during the grinding process. It lowers the temperature at the contact point and forms a silicone-free anti-adhesive layer on the abrasive material. The tool life of an abrasive disc when machining aluminium is usually only approximately 30 minutes in normal operation. Using WEICON Alu Grinding Protection, the tool life can be increased by up to 350%.
