Hermes began production for the wood and metalwork industries in 1927. With over eighty years of experience, it is now one a worldleading manufacturer of industrial abrasives. After retailing their products for the past thirty-five years, we can attest to their quality and a high level of customer satisfaction. An abrasive is made of three basic parts. These are the backing, abrasive particles and a bonding agent. The backing must withstand

bending, rubbing and friction, etc. From being wrapped around a cork block or being run at a hundred metres per second on a machine. The abrasive particles must be hard and sharp and the right material for their intended purpose. The bonding agent needs to be strong and flexible. It must withstand heat and harsh working conditions. Most modern abrasives undergo other processes. Many include extra ingredients. It is a mistake to take abrasives for granted. Sandpaper is a thing of the past. Now choose your weapon.

RB406 Ultimate Abrasive One of the most efficient fast cutting abrasives available to you whatever your skill or need. Cloth backed and exceedingly flexible with aluminium oxide grit to do the cutting with grits ranging from 80 to 400. Made popular with woodturners because although it has a tough J weight cloth backing and superb resistance to high temperatures, RB406 has tremendous flexibility, enabling fracture free folds to access very tight corners and can easily be resized into suitable strips when required. This versatile abrasive can also be lubricated with oil or water to aid a finishing cut if required. Hermes RB406 J-Flex was originally conceived to refine and polish exotic metals for industrial production processing in exacting environments such as the aircraft industry to polish very tight radii. Additionally, the product was developed to resist high friction temperatures and the blunting effects of ‘capping’ (when swarf welds itself to the abrasive grain). So whether you are working in wood or metal, RB406 is one of the essentials for a fine finish and the answer to stock removal in awkward difficult-to-get-at places.
