|The Flap Disc is a revolutionary hybrid
coated abrasive product that combines the stock removal
capabilities of a depressed center wheel with the surface
finishing characteristics of a resin fibre disc. The
result is an abrasive tool that can perform the functions
of grinding and finishing simultaneously.
A series of flaps made of abrasive cloth are attached to a semi-rigid fiberglass backing in a fan-like arrangement. As the flaps gradually wear during use, there is a continual supply of "new" grains exposed from the under layers.
Note: Aluminum oxide grain and flat face profile available upon request.
|Diameter||Arbor Type||Grain Type||Available Grit Sizes||Max. RPM|
|4-1/2"||7/8" Plain||Aluminia Zirconia||13,300|
|5/8"-11 Threaded||Aluminia Zirconia||13,300|
|5"||7/8" Plain||Aluminia Zirconia||12,150|
|5/8"-11 Threaded||Aluminia Zirconia||12,150|
|7"||7/8" Plain||Aluminia Zirconia||8,600|
|5/8"-11 Threaded||Aluminia Zirconia||8,600|
While Flap Discs perform best on stainless steel, their versatility allows them to work effectively on other materials such as carbon steel, aluminum, wood and plastic.
|Grit Size||Selection Recommendations|
|36AZ||Aggressive grinding and weld removal|
|60AZ||Recommended when medium grinding and finishing are required in one step|
|80AZ||Light grinding with more emphasis on finishing|
|120AZ||Extra fine surface finishing|
