Abrasive Lapping Paste

Kemet Abrasive Lapping Paste

The Kemet range of specially formulated Lapping Compounds (White Aluminium Oxide, Green Silicon Carbide and Black Silicon Carbide) have many applications but are particularly suited for the lapping of mechanical seals, valve seats and valve grinding as they retain texture and lubrication during extended lapping operations.

The main advantages include:

  • Easy to clean - Water soluble
  • Not petroleum based - environmentally friendly
  • Fast & Effective Cutting
  • Good Lubricity
  • Strictly manufactured in house to ISO 9001:2000 Quality standards
  • Only finely graded abrasives used
