Why are these lapping compounds invaluable in the market?

Timesaver Lapping Compounds have been a choice for many users in a multitude of industry sectors worldwide due to their unique attributes such as:

  • Unlike other lapping compounds, Timesaver Lapping Compounds do not contain emery, silicon carbide, aluminum oxide or similar permanent charging abrasives.
  • It will not charge into any metal surface or continue to cut.
  • The lapping compound has a cutting action that is rapid at first and gradually diminishes as the abrasive particles disintegrate into an inoperative material.
  • The finishing action is such that surface irregularities and surplus metal is gently and quickly removed without disturbing the natural metal structure.

What are Timesaver Lapping Compounds green label and Timesaver Lapping Compounds yellow label used for?

  • Bearing or contacting surfaces of rotating components
  • Oscillating or sliding parts of a mechanism
