RB406 J-Flex is one of the most efficient fast cutting abrasives available to you whatever your skill or need. Cloth backed and exceedingly flexible with aluminium oxide grit to do the cutting with grits ranging from 80 to 600.
Made popular with woodturners because although it has a tough J weight cloth backing and superb resistance to high temperatures, RB406 has tremendous flexibility, enabling fracture free folds to access very tight corners and can easily be resized into suitable strips when required. This versatile abrasive can also be lubricated with oil or water to aid a finishing cut if required.
Hemes RB406 J-Flex was originally conceived to refine and polish exotic metals for industrial production processing in exacting environments such as the aircraft industry to polish very tight radii. Additionally the product was developed to resist high friction temperatures and the blunting effects of 'capping' (when swarf welds itself to the abrasive grain).
So whether you are working in wood or metal, RB406 is one of the essentials for a fine finish and the answer to stock removal in awkward difficult-to-get-at places. Now available in 1 or 10 metre rolls.

Tested todayI think this product is too expensive when purchasing one metre. Now I have got that out the way lets talk about how brilliant this product is. It lasts well. It was great when I used it as the final grade when I sanded my bowl. It is a good thickness whilst retaining excellent flexibility. It is the best 600 grade I have used yet which is only let down by the price.

The best abrasive ever?This is possibly the best abrasive ever. I've tried alternative cloth backed abrasives available in France and from the UK and none last, or perform like this Ultimate abrasive. It removes wood quickly, effortlessly and cleanly. Leaves few, if any marks as you progress through grits and is relatively clog free. It also doesn't produce much heat in use compared to others. A quick blast with an air hose keeps it fresh for the next use. Well worth the cost.
