Sylmasta Micro Abrasives are used to polish plastics, acrylic, metals, paint, soft wood, and other surfaces. They remove materials and shine to an ultra-smooth finish.
The Sylmasta range of abrasives come in various forms including pads, files and liquids. Sylmasta use micro mesh-sized abrasive grits to give the smoothest, glossiest possible finish. Powders are graded using a system of sieves known as meshes and powders are referred to by their mesh size – for example the particles of a 60 mesh powder are 250 microns in size. The very fine mesh used to grade micron-sized powders is known as a micro mesh.
Flexi-Files are easy-to-use hand tools which come with between two and three different grades of micro abrasives. They can be used for the rapid removal of material and the preparation of surfaces for finishing.
Micro Abrasive Gloss Liquid removes blemishes from transparencies and polishes acrylic, metals and plastics up to a mirror-like finish. Unlike other liquid cleaners and polishes, it contains no solvents and will therefore not damage surfaces over time.
Sylmasta Liquid Gloss is available as part of the Acrylic Restoral Kit. The Kit also contains abrasive cloths, polishing cloths and a foam support pad – all the products needed to remove scratches and damage and polish acrylic and soft plastic areas up to 3m² (30 square feet).
Micro Abrasive Pads are cushioned to prevent the abrasive grit from digging into the surface and cutting too aggressively, even if too much pressure is applied. There are nine different grades available for finishing surfaces of soft woods, plastic, metals, and paints.
