Smooth Touch™ flexible, cotton-fiber abrasive wheels for pipe thread cleaning, polishing, and blending have been introduced by Rex-Cut Products Inc. They are made of cotton fiber impregnated with abrasives and a proprietary bond that allows them to last up to five times longer than unitized wheels, claims the company.
Suitable for cleaning oil field pipe threads made of stainless steel, INCONEL® alloy, other superhard alloys, iron, and aluminum, the wheels will not change the geometry of pipe threads. They come in 2-, 3-, 4-, and 6-in.-dia. sizes in 0.125, 0.25, and 0.5 in. thick, with coarse, medium, and fine grits.
