LECO Introduces New Fastick™ Polishing Cloth System

St. Joseph, Mich.—LECO has introduced the Fastick system for grinding and polishing samples. This new system offers customers a cost-effective alternative to the magnetic disc systems often used for grinding and polishing.

Fastick utilizes a core PSA Base disc with pressure-sensitive adhesive on its underside and a glossy top surface designed to cling to a variety of surfaces. Fastick polishing cloths feature a special backing that adheres readily and securely to the Base disc. While it can be difficult to remove magnetic discs, Fastick polishing cloths hold securely, yet are easily removed from the Base disc. With no magnet to attract metal debris to the polishing cloth, Fastick reduces the risk of contamination and simplifies cloth disposal.

“This technology is unlike anything LECO has offered before,” said Mark West, Metallographic Products Sales Manager at LECO. “Our customers will enjoy the system’s simple maintenance, which will save time and costs for labs of all sizes.”
