Create Better Component Surface Finishes with Lapping Compounds

Lapping is a machining technique that is used to produce precision finishes on machined parts. Lapping can be used to produce a very flat surface, flat lapping, or to produce good fitment between two mating components, i.e. gear teeth, shaft and bushing, shaft and bearing, piston and cylinder, etc.. Timesaver Lapping Compounds are typically used in precision fitment between mating components as it breaks down too quickly to be an effective medium in flat lapping procedures. The abrasives in Timesaver Lapping Compounds are designed to produce a precision finish and fitment between two components without charging into the metal or continuing to cut.
