Cibo Abrasives

Cibo Abrasives know everything about grinding, sanding and polishing placing them in the best position to design and manufacture the highest quality abrasive solutions. Here at AFS, we partnered with Cibo in 2002 to bring their abrasive products and solutions to the UK metal finishing industry.


Cibo are a family business and their name refers to the origin of the company. CIRE & BOENWAS (wax & floor polish).

Founded in 1948 when ‘grandmother Gilles’ started a one-woman company in self-shining floor polishing products. Floor polish soon developed into everything related to the sanding of wood. Cibo was then taken over in 1978 by the youngest son, Dominique Gilles, when the company’s focus was shifted towards the surface treatment of metals. Great success in the metal industry, and in 2017 Bram and Sophie Gilles took over the reins of the company.


Cibo manufacture a complete range of abrasive tools to suit any need. From their unitised range, RCD flap discs, inoxiclean, time saving kits, and many more there is a lot to be discovered.
