SiC Paper

Removing glue residue on Apex B and MagnoMet carrier plates

In Magnetic Systems, carrier plates are used to provide a flat and well supported surface for silicon carbide (SiC) paper.  If these papers are used heavily or for long periods, the pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) glue used can remain on the carrier plate after removal of the paper.  This can cause problems with flatness and …
