Silicon Carbide Sanding Discs
Nylon Mesh Cushioned Quick-Change SandingDiscs for Aluminum, Soft Metals, and Nonmetals. Used for heavy cleaning and stripping, these discs have an abrasive-embedded nylon mesh construction that gives you more control over sanding pressure.
The discs are made up of many layered, overlapping sections of abrasive material or ‘flaps’ (hence the name). These flaps are formed of a polycotton or polyester backing material to which abrasive grains are adhered, these are then layered and bonded to a backing plate). The backing plate provides stability to the flap disc and imparts its

The History and Innovation Behind Zirconia Alumina
The new BlueFire R887D is a supersized zirconia product designed for grinding stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, superalloys, and magnesium. The new 36 grit BlueFire R887D provides 50% improvement in metal removal compared to the earlier generation zirconia product.
Zirconia alumina requires a decent amount of pressure to perform well. One of the primary uses of zirconia alumina is getting rid of bumpy spots in materials like tungsten, carbon steel, stainless steel, and titanium. Other materials that mesh well with zirconia alumina are: Tool steel Cast iron Blades Rotors
SC Ultimate Silicon Carbide Flap Discs - CGW Abrasives
SC Silicon Carbide Flap Discs. Download Image. SC Ultimate Silicon Carbide Flap Discs. Premium blend of Zirconia and Aluminum Oxide grains with grinding aid on a polyester backing. Excels on stainless steel applications. Grinding aid lubricates the grains for easier break down. Designed for heat sensitive applications.
Zirconium Oxide (also called Zirconia) : Significantly tougher than pink and brown aluminium oxide abrasives which makes zirconia grain well suited to high pressure machining and grinding applications. Zirconia grain also has a good heat resistance. Zirconia abrasives work best in the grit range 24 to 120 grit
