Flap discs suitable for aggressive applications
Weiler offers new Tiger Paw™ abrasive flap discs for edge grinding. Available in January, the 100 percent zirconium flap discs feature a high-performance grain and poly-cotton backing for improved grain retention.
Multiple layers of coated abrasive material expose sharp, fresh grains as they slowly wear away, and the zirconium grain prevents premature grain shedding on aggressive applications, the company states.
The phenolic-back discs are available in 4.5- and 7-in. sizes with or without a 5/8-11 nut in both Type 29 and 27 standard and Type 27 super-high-density configurations. The Type 29 configuration is made for the most aggressive applications, while the super-high-density Type 27 configuration contains 35 to 40 percent more flaps.
The disc is suitable for pipe beveling, edge chamfering, weld blending, grinding, deburring, stock removal, surface finishing, and blending.
