Cotton Fiber Discs grind and finish aluminum in one step.

Non-loading Rex-Cut® Quick Change Discs are constructed with multiple layers of non-woven cotton fiber impregnated with aluminum oxide or silicon carbide grains. For use on flat or contoured surfaces, construction ensures products constantly reveal fresh abrasives as they grind. Discs, offered in 1, 1Â-½, 2, and 3 in. sizes, are rigid enough to get into corners and are available with...

Photonic Crystal Fibers suit laboratory research.

Photonic Crystal Fibers (PCF) contain air voids or holes, which serve 2 purposes; central hole forms hollow core fiber suitable for carrying high laser power levels, while arrays of tiny through holes lower effective refractive index of glass fiber core and/or cladding. Products include endlessly single mode fiber, hollow core fiber, polarization preserving fiber, photonic bandgap fiber, and...

Chemically Inert PTFE Fibers withstand high temperatures.

PLASTOLON(TM) Fibers, available in flat format, can also be twisted in single or multiple strands to provide threads measuring from 600 denier and higher. Physical properties include thermal resistance to 550°F, resistance to intense UV exposure, and low co-efficient of friction. In particulate filtration applications, dust collector bags made with PLASTOLON(TM) Filtration Fibers withstand...

PTFE Tapes and Fibers offer high temperature resistance.

PLASTOLON(TM) Tapes provide insulation in wire and cable wrapping applications. They offer heat resistance, low smoke characteristics, and allow for uniform wall thickness. PLASTOLON(TM) Fibers are suitable for industrial woven fabrics, sewing thread, and self-lubricating bearings. In awning and marine applications, UV-resistant properties maintain seam strength. Chemically inert fibers withstand...

Sensing Fibers are suitable for low profile applications.

STEELSKIN(TM) plastic sensing fibers feature DURA-BEND(TM) multi-core construction and braided 304 grade stainless steel over-jacket for wear resistance. With 2.9 mm OD, fibers carry light through bend radius of 10.0 mm with no signal loss. Fibers are available in 3 and 6 ft standard lengths and operate in temperatures from 0-70°C. Fibers terminate with plastic ferrules to FP style...

Focusing Fibers detect ultra-small targets.

Focused-beam fibers pipe light into otherwise inaccessible locations, and focus beam to very small spot, allowing fiber-optic sensors to detect small parts. Fibers come in fixed and adjustable sensing distance models. L4C6 and L4C20 convergent lens attachments allow sensing at fixed focal distances of 0.24 and 0.79 in., respectively, with spot dia. as small as 0.01 in. Other attachments include...
