Norton flap wheels are typically used in metal fabrication and welding applications especially when you need a conformable product that can grind and polish intricate shapes and contours. A continuous series of individual flaps work to provide a uniform finish as the flaps wear away to expose fresh abrasive.
High-Performance Grinding Wheelsfor Angle Grinders— Use on Metals. A blend of ceramic alumina and zirconia alumina removes material at a 50% faster rate than our Long-Life Grinding Wheels. Wheels are also known as Type 27 wheels, raised-hub wheels, and grinding discs.
Flap Discs for Metal Grinding & Metal Fabrication
Flap discs are constructed of overlapping abrasive-coated flaps attached to a central hub. As the disc is used, the flaps continually wear away to expose a new layer of abrasive mineral. This allows for a consistent cut-rate and finish throughout the entire life of the disc.
