TIMco launches expanded range of abrasive products
Written by Amy

TIMco, one of the UK’s largest, independent and fastest growing wholesalers to the construction industry, has expanded its selection of abrasive products to now include a wide variety of abrasive rolls, sheets, pads, discs and belts.

The comprehensive TIMco ADDAX abrasives range meets the high demands of the modern woodworking, decorating and metalworking industries using tear and crack resistant backing paper, heat resistant resin adhesive and premium quality abrasive grit.

It includes sandpaper rolls in a wide-varity of grit and in three colours, yellow, green and red, to reflect the thickness of the backing paper – lightweight, premium and heavy duty – suitable for different uses.

The range also contains steel wire wool in coarse, medium and fine grades used by woodworkers, metalworkers and craftsmen when cleaning metal and wood; the wool gives a perfect finish for painting and welding.

The new-look packaging has also been specifically designed to provide clearer information as well as highlight product features, benefits and applications.

Joshua Lockett, Product Supervisor at TIMco, said: “We recognised that our customers needed a well-presented and extensive product range to meet the needs of the modern tradesman. The increased demands of power tools require abrasive products to withstand heat, dust build up and movement, whilst maintaining a professional finish with a multitude of applications.

“As a result, we have developed a range of products using premium abrasive grit, backing materials and resin adhesives. These new products fit perfectly with our existing range of wire brushes and wheels to reflect our company’s commitment of becoming a ‘one stop shop’ for builders’ merchants.”

The new abrasives range is showcased in the 18th edition of the TIMco Product Catalogue which now features more than 7,000 products including 300 new additions in the last six months alone.  A specialist product guide for the range is also available on the TIMco website as well as dedicated product highlights videos for further information on the whole range.

TIMco won the title of ‘Best Distributor Brand’ at last year’s coveted Builders Merchant Journal (BMJ) Awards in London. The company was also named as ‘Brand of the Year’ by the National Buying Group (NBG) in November 2018. TIMco was ranked at No. 154 in the 10th annual Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 2019 league table.

TIMco, one of the UK’s largest independent wholesale suppliers of screws, fasteners, fixings, nails, building chemicals and adhesives, power tool accessories, building hardware, site protection and ironmongery, is headquartered in Nantwich, Cheshire and imports and supplies more than 7,000 product lines from around the world to distributors throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe.  The company was established in 1972 and now employs 160+ members of staff from its offices in the UK, Ireland and Taiwan.  For more information, visit
