There will be no entry to all visitors to our workplaces, except for the purposes of fulfilling the requirements of our customers listed as Essential Services. The only people allowed into our workplaces are:

  • Couriers
  • Delivery personnel collecting goods for our customers who are Essential Services

This means that we will not entertain any offline retail sales, walk-in enquiries, or self-collection of online orders. All visitors for such purposes will be turned away. If you require service or have enquiries, please get in touch with us through the phone or by mail.

Fix All Turbo Demo Break

Fix All Turbo – Stronger than wood

It has happened.

For years, we’ve been doing demonstrations of Fix All Turbo by using two pieces of wood. It’s simple – apply Fix All Turbo to a piece of wood, stick another piece of wood so it bonds together, press tight, and start the timer. You might have seen it in the official Turbo video here:

The end result looks like this.

Fix All Turbo Demo Break

20 minutes later, challenge anyone and everyone to break the pieces apart. There are plenty of places to grip, and enough space for two people to try to pull the pieces apart with all their strength. Just 20 minutes of bond time – and our Turbo adhesive bonds so strongly that so far, nobody has been able to pull it apart.

And then it changed. A new challenger was able to break it. Read more

New Klingspor Website

Klingspor has now updated their international website at www.klingspor.de. The new site boasts a very modern and clean design, and what’s more important is that now it’s easier than ever to find products and get information of every product.

There’s also a ton of abrasive resources. While their catalogue has always had such useful information, they have never really been translated into the web. Now, the Klingspor international website has a section dedicated to “Lowdown On Grinding“, which has terms, guides, and more information to help users achieve higher abrasive efficiency. Read more
