« on: September 15, 2009, 06:50:21 AM »

Had the privilege today to see the 2 new balls coming out.. Looks interesting..

And i don't mean the C-System 2,5..

I'm not allowed to give up any technical details.. But i can say the colourway on one of them is veeeeeeeeeeeeery pretty.. I like..

They are a new abrasive pad, similar in concept to Abralon, but slightly less expensive and longer lasting. They are called Sia Air Velvet. Here are some references.

I am curious if the grit grades are the same as abralon...that is 2000 sia=2000abralon


Neither are 2000 grit Sia or 2000 grit Abralon. We''ve just bene using that as a convenient reference.  Actually, both use the FEPA or European standard, as will all US made abrasives in the near future. So they are P2000 grit, period. So, yes, they''re the same. The grit numbers are all preceded by the letter, "P", to indicate they are graded using the FEPA standard.

Even Scotch-Brite''s  newest nylon pad, the gold one, is made using the FEPA standard, not using the US or CAMI standard.
