- Micro-Mesh MX - Description of Micro-Mesh MX for Metal Finishing (This Page)
MICRO-MESH® is a series of cloth-backed cushioned abrasives designed to produce very low roughness average (Ra) scratch patterns on a variety of materials. On metal the coarse grades of MICRO-MESH MX can achieve finishes below 1.0 micro inch with proper surface preparation and application.
Surface preparation prior to MICRO-MESH MX use includes establishing the geometry of the part reduction of the Ra to 20 micro inch or less using the most economical conventional method available. One application of MICRO-MESH MX should reduce the Ra to 10 micro inch.
Subsequent applications will further reduce the Ra by approximately 1/2 until the specified finish is reached. Using a combination of one or more of the MX series and variation of material feed, speed or pressure can produce sub 1.0- micro inch finish.
MICRO-MESH MX can also be used on painted metal surfaces and other hard surfaced materials.
Silicon carbide crystals on a resilient layer over cloth back. The backing is stamped with the following grade number for easy identification.

STORAGE & HANDLING:
When stored between 0-120 degrees Fahrenheit a clean and dry environment, life is nearly unlimited. No special handling required.
MICRO-MESH MX may be used by hand or machine. A firm foam block should be used as back-up during hand applications. The cutting ability of MICRO-MESH MX is increased by increasing the rigidity of the back-up material. MICRO-MESH MX may be used wet or dry. Most water or oil base lubricants are acceptable for used with MX. Lubricants should be tested for compatibility before general use. Always finish clean-up with soap and water to remove solvent.
When using water as a lubricant do not soak MX in water for more than four hours. Apply water by dipping or spraying.
Using MX with a sharp edged back-up may cause it to wear faster on the narrow edge.
