ABRASIVE RESINS thermally adhere abrasive grains to substrates for superior polishing and finishing.

GP® urea-formaldehyde and phenol-formaldehyde resins are used in coated abrasives, bonded abrasives and wheels, sandpaper, scrub pads and other industrial abrasive applications.   Examples of our resins for abrasives applications are below.
