The new dimension for grinding aluminum.

Tiger Shark-PlantexTIGER SHARK-PLANTEX® elastic discs are unbeatable for the difficult grinding of aluminum. High material removal, reduced grinding temperature and no glazing with aluminum particles make the TIGER SHARK® the first choice for these applications. This flap disc, with its ceramic/corundum cotton abrasive fabric, also offers high grinding capacity and low tool costs for steel and nonferrous metals. The backing plate is elastic PLANTEX® earth-friendly compound and adjusts well to the shape of the workpiece. TIGER SHARK® is ideal for grinding curved surfaces and shapes, and it is often used in car body shops, car workshops and for tool making.

The excellent features of the TIGER SHARK® can be enhanced even further with the newly developed Kangaroo ALU-FIX® OIL. A quick spray on the workpiece will solve many of the problems you may have encountered while grinding aluminum in the past. Glazing is no longer necessary, the material removal rate is up to 300% higher, the finish is visibly better – and the flap disc will last around three times longer.
