Description Technical Specs
Paramount® Felt Split Laps are crafted from pure wool felt, which undergoes steaming to shrink and thicken before being pounded to achieve the correct specific hardness. All laps feature pinhole centers and boast a maximum operating speed of 3,450 rpm. They are renowned for their:

  • Consistent density throughout, ensuring identical polishing results from wheel to wheel.
  • Even wear.
  • Longevity, providing 3 to 5 times the lifespan of conventional split laps.

Felt products, in general, have earned a well-deserved reputation over centuries for outperforming all other polishing materials. Felt serves as an ideal medium for polishing compounds and slurries of various types. Its porosity readily accepts fine abrasive particles, facilitating a consistent, sharp cutting action.

The resilience of felt aids in conforming the polishing surface to the part being worked on. Moreover, as felt wears down, it maintains a consistent medium for polishing compounds. Additionally, the ability to machine felt to close tolerances enables offering the precise felt profile required to match the part's profile.

Split and beveled laps are highly favored by jewelers. When used on a horizontal polishing machine (lapping machine) with the flat side down, the operator can effectively "see through" the slits as the wheel rotates. This feature allows for pinpoint precise polishing, particularly beneficial for flat surfaces, angles, and corners without distortion.

Other typical application areas for these laps include:

  • Dental
  • Windshield Repair
  • Plastic Parting Lines
  • Glass Polishing
