Get Hooked on KLING-ON Discs by KLINGSPOR!

Until now, hook and loop discs have been an expensive alternative to PSA (Pressure Sensitive Adhesive) discs. They were often twice as much as PSA discs.

With KLINGSPOR’s Kling-On® (hook & loop) disc system, you’ll get maximum usage out of your discs since PSA rarely re-stick to the backing pad after removal. Kling-On® discs are designed for quicker removal and replacement, adding up to more productivity while offering better surface finishes.

KLINGSPOR’s Kling-On® hook and loop disc sanding system.

Until now, hook and loop discs have been an expensive alternative to PSA (Pressure Sensitive Adhesive) discs. They were often twice as much as PSA discs. 

With KLINGSPOR’s Kling-On® (hook and loop) disc system, you will get maximum usage out of your discs. PSA discs rarely re-stick to the tool after they are removed, resulting in "wasted discs." Kling-On® discs are designed for quicker removal and replacement, which adds to more productivity. The "velour" backing gives a better surface finish, reducing the likelihood of gouging your workpiece.

Advantage 1: Smoother Finish

Kling-On® leaves a smoother finish on wood when compared to pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA). This is a result of the cushioning effect that occurs with the use of Kling-On®. The average thickness of a C-weight paper, P-120 grit with Pressure Sensitive Adhesive is .0216 inches. The same paper with Kling-On® is .0265 inches. This is not caused by an increase in paper thickness but the use of "nap" as the connecting mechanism of the disc to the disc sander back-up pad. A softer scratch means consistently smoother finishes throughout the grit range.

 

Advantage 3: Decreases Downtime

Kling-On® is the easiest and fastest way to change discs. Friction and therefore heat, is created when using abrasives. Over continued use and time pressure sensitive adhesive will eventually bond itself to the backing pad. This is particularly apparent if the sanding disc is allowed to cool before removal. Kling-On® relieves you of having to continually clean the backing pad or replace it.

 

Advantage 4: Saves Money

In the past, hook & loop style abrasives were far more expensive than the pressure sensitive adhesive style. Because KLINGSPOR believes cost concerns should not be your only criteria when choosing a style of abrasive connection, we have done something no one else will. KLINGSPOR has dramatically reduced the price of our Kling-On® style.  Not only will Kling-On® save you money in the long run, it will cost you virtually nothing to switch.

SUGGESTIONS FOR BEST RESULTS

  1. Use a 10,000-12,000 rpm orbital sander.

  2. Start the sander while resting flat on the surface and remove the sander before stopping to eliminate swirl marks.

  3. Each grit needs to pass over the surface following a “North, South, East, West” pattern to ensure that previous scratches are removed and a uniform finish is achieved. Two passes per step is recommended - finishing with the grain.

  4. Clean the surface after each step to minimize contamination scratches.
