of Surface Finishing and Polishing Products for 2014
Updated QUICK-STEP system to result in uniform finishes with every usage
Montreal QC / Windsor CT — Walter Surface Technologies, a global industry leader in surface treatment technologies, announces three new solutions to its QUICK-STEP line of surface finishing and polishing products. The QUICK-STEP FINISHER, QUICK-STEP BLENDEX, and QUICK-STEP FLEX products are the latest additions to the Walter QUICK-STEP family. Featuring patented Velcro support – with a central pin to ensure proper placement and safety – the new time-saving products are designed as the industry standard for finishing ultra-clean stainless steel surfaces in industries such as food prep, nuclear, pharmaceutical, construction and others.
QUICK-STEP FINISHER: the best compact finishing tool on the market today
Designed for surface finishing, the new variable-speed QUICK-STEP FINISHER tool is compact, lightweight and ideal for sanding, finishing and polishing tasks. Featuring an extra-large gear and easily adjustable DYNAMAX electronic speed control, QUICK-STEP FINISHER has an up-to-date motor design with plenty of torque even at lower speeds. Created with the same high quality as the QUICK-STEP Big-Buff, the QUICK-STEP FINISHER features a smaller frame and ergonomically crafted design suitable for work in small, confined spaces – allowing users to quickly complete even the toughest finishing jobs with ease.
QUICK-STEP BLENDEX: powerful surface conditioning discs with enhanced removal rates and longer life
The newly updated QUICK-STEP BLENDEX surface conditioning discs feature more consistent performance and double the disc life. The result of more than two years of Walter research and development, the new QUICK-STEP BLENDEX is designed to be the best conditioning discs on the market today. For use with Walter QUICK-STEP backing pads, QUICK-STEP BLENDEX features non-woven construction and is specifically designed to prepare surfaces for the final finishing treatment such as painting on steel, aluminum and stainless steel materials – leaving a uniform finish every time.
QUICK-STEP FLEX: enhanced high flexibility for hard-to-reach surfaces
The flexible new QUICK-STEP FLEX finishing disc is designed to fit all sanding applications with the advantages of a flap disc. The long-lasting disc – the result of more than two years of R&D (like its BLENDEX cousin) – offers surface finishing and a high removal rate of grinding and finishing welds. Designed as the first stage in a multi-step finishing process, the new QUICK-STEP FLEX delivers all the weld breaking power of Enduro-Flex -- with an added refined touch to ensure a brilliant surface finish.
“The Walter family of QUICK-STEP finishing products is in growing demand by industries where high quality surfaces are required, and where bringing out a specific finish on ferrous and nonferrous metals is a top priority. Our rigorous R&D work is paying off - the upgraded QUICK-STEP product line delivers longer life, higher removal rates and quicker time to a brushed or mirror finish” said Jonathan Douville, Product Manager, Walter Surface Technologies International.
Available in early March, the new QUICK-STEP FINISHER with QUICK-STEP BLENDEX and QUICK-STEP FLEX can work well on individual tasks or together in a sequence (as a complete kit) to obtain best results in blending and polishing metal surfaces.
