Abrasive tools for marine industries are used for surface finishes, from boat manufacturing to polishing stainless steel details.

Stainless steel surface finishing

More specifically on stainless steel surfaces, applications include:

  • Grinding, deburring. Aluminum oxide, Zirconia, and Ceramic abrasives.
  • Finishing, polishing. Trizact™, non-woven, felter, cotton, sisal, and sisal-cotton. Finishing and polishing have to fulfill the highest expectations in the nautical industry.

Cta Calflex abrasive tools 

Cta Calflex offers a complete range of abrasive products for all stainless steel surface finishing, including:

Trizact™ tools


Trizact™ flap wheels with spindle, flap wheels with hole, belts, spiralbands, discs for high precision finishing and polishing. As known, Trizact™ has a longer life than traditional abrasives because it is made with a special abrasive with a pyramidal structure. It allows a constant finishing without imperfections until the complete wear of the tool, which will last longer. This abrasive structure allows better results too, in particular in polishing operations where roughness and imperfections must be minimal or absent, as required in the nautical industry. For this reason, Cta Calflex converts Trizact™ to various tools.
