· Bosch uses 130 years of experience of sia Abrasives

Bosch is offering a new range of abrasives for hand sanding: fleece abrasives for hand sanding of metals, plastics, coatings and composite materials; foam abrasives for hand sanding for working on wood, paints and varnishes. All of these abrasives are very adaptable to contours and have a considerably longer lifetime than standard coated abrasives.

The new “Best for Finish” and “Expert for Finish” fleece abrasives for hand sanding are much more flexible and adaptable to contours than standard coated abrasives, which results in very consistent surfaces and burr-free treatment of workpieces. The open structure prevents the abrasives from clogging. A high level of grit penetration in the abrasive and the very consistent grit distribution ensure fast work progress, constant sanding performance and a long lifetime. The fleece abrasives made of high-performance fibers also offer high tear resistance.

The “Best for Finish” and “Expert for Finish” fleece abrasives for hand sanding are available in “coarse A”, “medium S” and “very fine A” grits as ready-cut pads (Fleece pad) or as ten-meter rolls in widths of 100 and 115 millimeters (Fleece roll).

The new foam abrasives for hand sanding strike a perfect balance between high removal rate and surface quality. Foam abrasives for hand sanding are particularly easy to handle and easy to clean compared to standard coated abrasives. The combination of soft backing material and flexible grit bond reduces clogging. The dust is continually released from the spaces between the grit.

The Bosch foam abrasives offer outstanding sanding results when manually sanding hard-to-reach areas and profiled surfaces on wood, paints, varnishes or roughcast. The foam hardness is matched to the application, which results in optimum pressure distribution. This is required for consistent sanding patterns without sanding-through and without pressure spots from fingers. These abrasives are very adaptable to contours, which is an advantage especially in hard-to-reach areas or on profiled surfaces. The Bosch foam abrasives are also suitable for wet sanding.

Produced in a solvent-free process with unique bonding agents, the grit adhesion of the Bosch abrasives is much more durable than that of conventional foam abrasives. This ensures the up to 75 percent longer lifetime. The new Bosch foam abrasives for hand sanding are available as “Best for Flat+Edge” and “Best for Profile” abrasive blocks and as “Best for Contour” abrasive sponges.

All of the new abrasives for hand sanding are available at specialist retail outlets. When developing the products and the manufacturing processes, Bosch used the more than 130 years of experience of sia Abrasives, a worldwide leading manufacturer of innovative abrasives which has been acquired by Bosch.

The Bosch Group is a leading global supplier of technology and services. In the areas of automotive and industrial technology, consumer goods, and building technology, some 275,000 associates generated sales of 38.2 billion euros in fiscal 2009. The Bosch Group comprises Robert Bosch GmbH and its more than 300 subsidiaries and regional companies in over 60 countries. If its sales and service partners are included, then Bosch is represented in roughly 150 countries. This worldwide development, manufacturing, and sales network is the foundation for growth. Each year, Bosch spends more than 3.5 billion euros for research and development, and applies for some 3,800 patents worldwide. With all its products and services, Bosch enhances the quality of life by providing solutions which are both innovative and beneficial.

The company was set up in Stuttgart in 1886 by Robert Bosch (1861-1942) as “Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering.” The special ownership structure of Robert Bosch GmbH guarantees the entrepreneurial freedom of the Bosch Group, making it possible for the company to plan over the long term and to undertake significant up-front investments in the safeguarding of its future. Ninety-two percent of the share capital of Robert Bosch GmbH is held by Robert Bosch Stiftung GmbH, a charitable foundation. The majority of voting rights are held by Robert Bosch Industrietreuhand KG, an industrial trust. The entrepreneurial ownership functions are carried out by the trust. The remaining shares are held by the Bosch family and by Robert Bosch GmbH.
