As the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of performance abrasives, we're delighted to present our broad portfolio of hardware solutions at this year’s Eisenwarenmesse – International Hardware Fair.

From industrial applications to trade products and DIY – there's something for everyone on our stand, where you can see many of our brands. We'll be offering live demonstrations of our total performance solutions for right angle grinders, and showcasing a wide range of abrasives and components for industrial use and retail trade. We will also reveal our latest graphic updates for the Rasta and Flexovit brands, and celebrating the 60th anniversary of Flexovit.

Norton Industrial Applications

Our demo booth is our highlight of the show where we'll be presenting our complete Norton range of performance solutions for right angle grinders, including our latest innovation, Norton Quantum3 Combo Ultra-Thin Grinding Wheel. Our experts will give live step-by-step demonstrations to give you tips and advice on how to get the best results, whatever your application or material. You can also take a look at our full range of right angle grinder products for the key processes in metal fabrication, from cutting-off through to polishing, to save end-users time and money and help distributors benefit from a one-stop-shop for your metal fabrication customers. 

The Norton Clipper range for construction markets, which now includes abrasives for hand and machine sanding, and cutting-off and grinding wheels will be on display, together with diamond cutting and drilling products.

Flexovit & Rasta

We'll be celebrating the 60th anniversary of Flexovit at IHF. Founded in Enschede, the Netherlands, in 1958, we have evolved from a local grinding wheel manufacturer to a global supplier of a wide portfolio of abrasive solutions. We'll also unveil the new identity for the Flexovit retail range, with a brand new look and feel. Trade and DIY products will be featured, showcasing a range of hand and machine sanding products for various applications.

IHF will also be our first opportunity to present the newly rebranded Rasta Abrasives. We'll be showcasing our packaging design, making products more easily identifiable so you can choose the right one more easily. In addition, you can find out about the new structured offering of four sub-brands which clearly define ‘good’, ‘better’, ‘best’ and ‘best innovation’ quality and performance with solutions for all industrial applications. Our latest Specialist Line cutting off discs now offer improved performance, delivering longer life than previous versions.
