Original Press Release:

Ceramic-Hybrid Cloth Allows Both Grinding and Finishing with One Plantex® Sunfire™ Disc

CS Unitec has recently introduced the new PLANTEX® SUNFIRE™ CERAMIC dual-grain disc with 5/8”x11 hub that allows users to grind, blend and finish with only one disc. The disc’s 40/60 combination grit grinds like a 40, blends and finishes like a 60, saving considerable working time and extending its service life on all metals (including steel, stainless, titanium, aluminum and bronze). The SUNFIRE’s patented multigrain ceramic-hybrid grit structure provides aggressive material removal as well as controlled blending and finishing.

The disc’s ceramic-hybrid cloth flaps are adhered to a PLANTEX® hemp-based backing plate. The backing plate, composed of 70% natural hemp fiber, is stronger, more versatile and safer than traditional backing plates. SUNFIRE’s high-strength construction enables longer run times, while its flexible backing plate more easily conforms to the surface of the workpiece. Suitable for a wide variety of applications, including working in tight spaces, the disc is easily trimmable and can be used to the abrasive’s last fraction of an inch. Ultimately, the PLANTEX® SUNFIRE™ CERAMIC discs run safer – they are fiberglass-free and produce no harsh fumes, airborne fibers or sharp pieces.

Available in 4-1/2” and 5” diameters, each PLANTEX® SUNFIRE™ CERAMIC disc is capable of removing up to 9 lbs. of material.
