arrow12Final Finishing Film

True Blue™ Filmarrow12True Blue™ Film

True Blue™ film is produced with a proprietary process combining a unique mixture of abrasive particle sizes and shapes that are bonded to a film backing which enable the film to produce finer surfaces than are commonly found in similarly graded micron films. True Blue™ film is typically used
after the 1micron diamond lapping film step and provides a flat, nearly scratch-free surface.

Final Green™ Filmarrow12Final Green™ Film

Final Green™ film is produced using a unique process, which is different from any other type of abrasive film. This process produces a film that is capable of removing even the finest scratches at the final stage of polishing. Final Green™ film is typically used after True Blue™ film and produces an ideal sample surface for analysis. All films are 8” or 12” diameter, and available with either plain back
(P/B) or pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA)
