Sia 150mm FiboTech Velcro Abrasive Discs
FiboTech Multi-Hole - An idea inspired from nature and the Fibonacci Sequence, results in higher abrasive performance, thanks to maximum dust extraction.Less dust. Less clogging. Faster removal rate.
Large range of available grits:
P40, P60, P80, P100, P120, P150, P180, P220, P240, P280, P320, P360, P400, P500, P600
150mm Discs, Muti-Hole (119 holes).
The Sunflower Principle:
Nature is a master of engineering. For all nature’s diversity, there is one shape which crops up time and time again. This pattern consists of a spiral structure and is based on a string of numbers known as the Fibonacci Sequence, where each successive number is equal to the sum of the two preceding numbers: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21,…
Spirals such as this occur throughout nature, from the tiniest things to the biggest – from snails and flowers to hurricanes and entire galaxies. The arrangement of the seeds on a sunflower is anything but random.
Quite the opposite, in fact: the seeds grow in opposing, intersecting spirals to create an offset effect. This allows the sunflower to accommodate the greatest possible number of seeds without any of these seeds blocking each other’s sunlight.
The result: maximum light yield!
Used for FiboTec
Taking inspiration from nature and the Fibonacci Sequence, Sia Abrasives has developed a groundbreaking new hole pattern for its abrasives. The holes in, the abrasive disc are arranged on opposing spirals, such as are found on a sunflower. In sanding applications this hole pattern provides superior dust extraction, significantly reduced clogging and longer life of abrasive materials.
Compared to standard hole patterns, FiboTec offers up to 50% faster removal rate with less dust residue on the workpiece and in the workspace. The result: higher abrasive performance thanks to maximum dust extraction!
FiboTech Multi-hole pattern
Performance comparisonThe special FiboTec multi-hole pattern provides better abrasive performance. Depending on grit and material, it achieves much faster material removal rates throughout its lifetime. Depending on material and application, FiboTec works four times longer than standard abrasive discs.
Best dust extraction rates
The offset between the holes on the opposing spirals ensures reliable dust extraction across almost the entire surface of the abrasive while the disc is rotating.
