Plastic Media

Plastic media is commonly used for deburring and polishing ferrous and non-ferrous materials.

They enable gentle and splinter-free vibratory grinding of sensitive materials (aluminum, magnesium, copper, brass, zinc, general die-cast materials). The low weight and the soft binders prevent the burr from being rolled onto the material. In addition, the temperature in the working container has an influence on the grinding process. 

Depending on the quality, plastic media can produce light and matt surfaces and ensure a fine finsh.

Advantages at a glance:

  • Low bulk density
  • Gentle and splinter-free processing
  • Very good for sensitive materials

Quality / Grinding performance

The grinding performance has a significant influence on the grinding process and the grinding pattern. The qualities range from A (very abrasive) to P (polishing). In addition to the quality, the media size also influences the grinding performance.

With quality P, the grinding wheel is made of pure porcelain (Ceramic), which can serve as a carrier for grinding pastes or other additives. The abrasive media itself has no abrasion.

Depending on the media shape and size, several grinding stages are available.
