Successful Stories From Our Clients

Randall Adams, Combat Weapon Systems

I have been using Cratex in my shop for over 15 years. It is the best I have found at putting a final finish on metal. It removes tooling marks and scratches and leaves a smooth professional finish. I use Cratex because my business depends on perfection.

Matthew Hartnett, Malice Studios

The 3 main things I love about CRATEX are 1: the scalability. If they have a product for my Foredom, they have it for my bench grinder. I don't have to try to match a finish in a recessed area because it's the same abrasive just a different size. 2: the quality. It's a smooth and consistent finish even at the rough grits. You can remove material without having huge gashes you have to remove. 3: customer service. If you have a question they are quick to respond and they are always helpful and friendly. Just a great Company to deal with.

Bill Poole, CEO at Poole’s Gunsmithing

CRATEX is by far the very best. I say this because CRATEX offers a vast variety of abrasive grits, types, and shapes to match my projects. The quality of the CRATEX products affords me the opportunity to provide my customers with the best quality product. Without the CRATEX products, our work would be so much more labor intensive.

Kieran Berard, Precision Deburring LLC

We like the quality and material your tooling has. It can be hard to find tools with durability and last for more than one part. A lot of times we'll do one lot of parts and only need one CRATEX tool which is great. We definitely like the strength and durability.
