Great durability High polishing efficiency Designed for wet and dry polishing Suitable for polishing on automatic production lines as well as for manual polishing Polyurethane tool PY 186 is designed for polishing flat glass edges. The tool contains special abrasives which allow non-standard way of use (polishing in wet and dry conditions).
The tools are made of polyurethane foam The tools are cooled with water (no added abrasive necessary) The tools minimize cracking layer in worked glass thereby polishing is easier The tools are suitable for lathes (vertical way) as well as for flat machines (horizontal way) The tools are easily profiled We produce 6 types of LAPI Tools. The difference is in the grit of incorporated abrasives. Lapi Pink has the greatest material removal effect and creates the roughest surface on glass, whereas Lapi Blue has the smallest material removal effect and creates the finest surface on glass.
PINK is suitable for removing seams after moulding, for rough working within radii of various dimensions, etc.
VIOLET has the same use as Pink, however, it creates a finer surface with a slightly lower removal effect on glass than the Pink wheel.
ORANGE is suitable for various kinds of manual repairs prior and following chemical polishing as well as for fining before mechanical polishing.
GREEN is suitable for fine cutting after rough LAPI. The tool creates surfaces which can be polished mechanically.
BLACK can directly polish concave surfaces, wedge cuts, etc. It is well suited for manual repairs of sodium-potassium crystal.
BLUE achieves final surface quality comparable to surfaces after processing with the finest pumice. In many cases this tool can be used for the final polishing.
MH Tools (discs/wheels) are manufactured from specially treated porous polyurethane foam. The tools are used for the polishing and lapping of glass, natural stones, single crystal materials, etc. The MH Tool material has the same properties in all directions. Hence the tools can be used on vertical as well as horizontal machines. The tools are used in all cases where, up until now, traditional materials such as cork, poplar wood, felt, etc., have been used. When compared with traditional materials, MH Tools offer the following advantages:
Greater durability Higher polishing productivity Higher quality of polished articles Higher reproducibility Greatly improved work safety Less physical effort.
POLPUR is a wholly Czech firm which was founded in 1990. The company’s product range includes a wide offer of polishing, lapping and grinding tools used mainly in the glass and jewellery industries, as well as in the optical and machinery industries. POLPUR tools have been successfully used by Czech and Slovak glass companies for many years. Nevertheless, a substantial part of the firm’s production (about 75%) is exported to glass companies not only in Europe but also in Asia, America and Australia. When comparing POLPUR tools with traditional implements, our customers especially appreciate the advantage of POLPUR tools’ superior durability and productivity, as well as the higher quality and reproducibility of the finish achieved. For the operator our tools also mean a higher degree of work safety and less physical effort related to cleaner working conditions.
