Abrasive products are used to grind things down for many purposes such as cleaning, carpentry, and manufacturing. Commercial abrasive products are made of very hard materials and are used to shape other objects through grinding and abrading actions. Examples include abrasive wheels and sanding tools. Industrial abrasives can be used as loose grains or in form of abrasive discs and belts.
Some of these materials are also available in the form of coated or bonded abrasives. They are used in the same way as ordinary tools, but allow greater speed, deeper cuts, and smoother finishes. Sanding abrasives are more effective than other tools because of their hardness and abrasive surface. Sanding abrasives are perfect for cutting metals, cement, and glass. Tasks like cleaning, machining, grinding, and polishing metals can be easily accomplished with them. They are also used to grind logs into paper pulp and manufacture non slip floor tiles. Sanding abrasives are truly versatile for many industrial applications.
