Cratex® Shapes

Rubberized Abrasives · Used for Smoothing, Light Deburring & Polishing 
Cratex® Shapes are rubberized abrasives used in a widely diversified list of industries, on production and assembly lines, in finishing operations, in tool and machine shops, in the production of basic tools, instruments, component parts and for maintenance and repairs. Shapes are available in Cylinder, Bullet, Tapered, and Pointed options. 

 Cratex® is made of premium quality silicon carbide evenly distributed throughout a premium grade oil-resistant rubber bond. In contrast to hard grinding wheels, the Cratex® bond offers a unique cushioned action. It resists loading and cuts smoothly without gouging into the work surface and is ideal for a broad range of applications where metallic or non-metallic surfaces must be smoothed or polished without loss of dimensional tolerances or control.

Cratex® can be used for: 

  • Light deburring to remove visible and microscopic burs
  •  Smoothing to improve wear qualities and to reduce the danger of fatigue failure
  •  Polishing to improve performance, appearance, cleanliness, and to lessen the danger of surface erosion or contamination 

Cratex® can be used with water or typical shop coolants and will not harden or soften with age or in actual use. It is formed in high precision compression molds and each size and shape is made in four standard grit textures: 

Dark Green: Coarse, 80 grit
Brown: Medium, 150 grit 
Red: Fine, 280 grit
Light Green: Extra Fine, 400 grit
