Bus – abrasive solutions for coaches and buses

The requirements for materials in the transport sector are subject to ongoing technological change and know no bounds. Not only do manufacturers of OEM components have to fulfil the highest expectations - the entire industry is constantly facing new challenges. Perfect finishing of bus outer shells and attachments made of materials such as fibre composites and acrylic glass or polycarbonate headlights calls for all-round expertise, the right technology and a system of products that complement each other perfectly.

Composite fibre materials are the answer. They are used whenever components with unusual combinations of properties are needed.

Perfect sanding results can only be achieved if the abrasives are optimally adapted to the sanding application (manual or machine sanding) and the accessories used (backing pad, hand sanding block, etc.). Easy-to-understand application recommendation ensure a perfect surface.

Lighter, stronger, more elastic, more precise, safer, more economical. In these times of rapid technological change, the functionality and properties of composite fibre materials know virtually no bounds and can be significantly enhanced by processing with abrasives.

The requirements for abrasives are exacting and constantly changing. The products are therefore of a modular construction and are adapted to applications: edges are cut or deburred and surfaces are sanded. This provides the ideal basis for the lines of force, functionality, finishing, coating and appearance of products.

The advantages of composite fibre materials are, thus, perfectly complemented by a customised sanding process. They lie in, amongst other things, the largely elastic deformation behaviour, the adaptable stability and rigidity, highly integrated design options, dynamic resilience, a low coefficient of expansion, a good raw material basis, a low investment requirement and ease of repair.
