Norton Abrasive Solutions for Marine Applications

Norton R&D teams specialize in the development of abrasives for marine applications, offering a complete range of abrasive products for commonly encountered bodywork applications in the nautical industry, whether that is in production, maintenance, or renovation work. Applications include cutting, grinding, deburring, finishing, polishing, and cleaning.



We are a specialist in the manufacture of cutting and grinding discs, offering innovations including multi-purpose discs, which are ideal for cutting all materials commonly encountered in shipyards. 


We offer a range of coated abrasive discs and specialties that are ideal for grinding, blending and deburring. As well as standard aluminum oxide and zirconia alumina abrasive discs we also offer innovative solutions that use high-performance ceramic alumina grain. 



Some years ago, Norton coated abrasive engineers invented and patented Multi-Air Cyclonic® vacuum paper discs. These discs are ideal for finishing fiberglass applications as the multi-perforated, precision laser-cut dust hole arrangement increases dust extraction power by 30% and increases product life by 35%, compared to conventional sanding systems with dust extraction.


Our Norton marine abrasive-portfolio also includes a comprehensive range of polishing and cleaning products and non-abrasive accessories including masking tapes specifically designed with the marine market in mind.
