What Are Abrasives?


An abrasive is a material used to finish (the act of polishing or making a surface smooth) or shape a workpiece through friction. The materials used on abrasives to create friction are often minerals. Abrasives are commonly mislabeled as sandpaper by the general public, but that is a misnomer because neither sand nor glass is used to manufacture abrasive products anymore. Abrasives are used for many different industrial, consumer, and technological applications. Abrasives can be used for cutting, grinding, polishing, drilling, sharpening, lapping, buffing, honing, and sanding among many other things. The wide range of uses has given birth to many different types of abrasive products.

How Do Abrasives Work?

As previously mentioned, abrasives rely on friction to remove material and smoothen out workpieces. While any two solid materials will wear each other away when repeatedly rubbed together over time, abrasive materials work well and last longer because they tend to be harder than the material that is being worked on. Abrasive grains (also called grit) have rough edges and when the grains come into contact with a material while in motion, the grains break away fragments of the workpiece. Many different factors determine how effective an abrasive will be. Factors include:

  • The relative hardness of an abrasive compared to the material being worked on (harder abrasives will cut deeper faster)
  • Adhesion between grains (determines how quickly grains are lost)
  • Loading (worn abrasives can reduce cutting efficiency)
  • Contact force (greater force will result in faster abrasion)
  • Use of lubricant, coolant, or metalworking fluid (can help to carry away sanding debris to prevent friction and reduce heat)

Microfiber Towels

What Can Microfiber Towels Do For Your Detailing Needs?

How do Microfiber Towels Affect The Appearance Of My Vehicle?

Microfiber towels are specialized cleaning and detailing towels designed for use in the automotive industry. They are known for their high absorbency, softness, and ability to clean without leaving streaks or scratches on vehicle surfaces. These towels come in various sizes, types, and GSM ratings (Grams per Square Meter), each with specific applications in automotive care and detailing. Here are some common types of automotive microfiber towels available at Benami Autocare:

Drying Towels: These towels are designed for drying a vehicle’s exterior after washing. They typically have a high GSM rating (e.g., 300 to 800 GSM) to maximize water absorption and minimize the risk of water spots.

Waffle Weave Towels: These towels have a textured waffle pattern that increases surface area and improves water absorption. They are often used for drying and detailing.

Buffing and Polishing Towels: These towels are used for applying and buffing off wax, polish, or sealants on a vehicle’s paint surface. They are usually soft and lint-free to prevent scratching and leave a high-gloss finish.

Glass Cleaning Towels: These are designed specifically for cleaning glass surfaces, such as windows and mirrors. They are often lint-free and streak-free to ensure clear and spotless results.

What is the difference between 300 and 400 GSM?

Microfiber Towels with 300 GSM:

  1. Absorbency: Towels with a 300 GSM rating are moderately absorbent. They can handle light to medium moisture levels and are suitable for tasks like wiping down surfaces in the kitchen, cleaning mirrors, or quick car drying.
  2. Versatility: These towels are versatile and can be used for a variety of cleaning tasks, both wet and dry.
  3. Durability: Microfiber towels with a 300 GSM rating are typically durable and can withstand multiple washes. They are often used in households and car detailing.
  4. Cost-Effective: They are often more cost-effective than higher GSM towels, making them a good choice for everyday cleaning needs.
  5. Lint-Free: Like most microfiber towels, those with a 300 GSM rating are lint-free, which means they won’t leave lint or streaks behind when used for cleaning.

Microfiber Towels with 400 GSM:

  1. Absorbency: Towels with a 400 GSM rating are more absorbent compared to 300 GSM towels. They can handle heavier moisture levels and are suitable for tasks that require more thorough drying, such as drying a car’s exterior after washing.
  2. Versatility: They are versatile and can be used for a wide range of cleaning tasks, from household cleaning to automotive detailing.
  3. Durability: Microfiber towels with a 400 GSM rating are also durable and can withstand frequent use and washing.
  4. Softness: These towels are soft and gentle on surfaces, making them suitable for delicate tasks like cleaning glass or polishing surfaces without scratching.
  5. Cost: While they offer increased absorbency and softness, they may be slightly more expensive than 300 GSM towels.

About Motor Guard Air Preparation Systems:

Motor Guard offers innovative and time-saving Air Preparation Systems that provide unique solutions to refinishing challenges. Some of the company’s applications range from air preparation tools such as air compressors, filters, and control units. Motor Guard has been providing compressed air filtration for over 32 years. This led Motor Guard to create a modular filtration system designed to integrate with components you may already have in your shop. In many instances, you may already have a quality regulator or water trap. These components may be used along with the Motor Guard Compressed Air Conditioning Modules to build one of many custom systems to fit any application in your shop.
