All of Weiler Abrasives products are made to the strictest quality standards and specifications and are designed to provide superior work performance and safe operation when used properly.
Many manufacturers mark some safety warnings, recommendations and usage restrictions directly on the product. However, it is not always practical to include even the most limited safety information on the product itself. Therefore, the operator MUST READ and FOLLOW all instructions supplied in or on the product container as well as those marked on the product.
Weiler power brushes and abrasives conform to standards listed below. All operators of power brushes and abrasives must comply with these safety standards.
