Discover the different assemblies of MERARD discs

MERARD polishing discs consist of several sheets of the same polishing cloth.

The thickness of the disc is defined by the number of sheets.

These sheets are joined together:

  • Either by several seams spread over the whole surface of the disc – It is a sewn disc
  • Or by staples and a cardboard centre – This is a cardboard centre disc

Sewn polishing discs

The leaves are perfectly held in place.

The disc has good surface rigidity and does not deform.

When polishing, it respects the shape of the workpiece, preserves the angles and allows for precision polishing.

Sewn discs are suitable for :

  • Flat surfaces
  • Workpieces with grooves/nuts
  • Polishing areas with precise boundaries
  • Workpieces with angular geometry

Polishing discs Centre-cardboard

The sheets are much freer.

When polishing, the disc leaves can spread freely and follow the shape of the workpiece.

The centre-cardboard discs are suitable for :

  • Rounded surfaces, both concave and convex
  • Wide polishing areas
  • Workpieces without sharp edges
