Grinding additives in the coating of the new Co-Cool mounted ceramic flap wheel from Pferd help prevent clogging and allow aggressive, cool grinding on stainless steel and nickel-based alloys.
These added elements are embedded within the resinoid bond on the wheel’s strong, flexible backing cloth flaps, arranged radially about the tool axis. This fan-type configuration gives high flexibility for grinding hard-to-reach surfaces in tank and processing equipment construction or for fine work on radii in tool, die, and moldmaking applications.
The new flap wheels are available in three diameter/length configurations: 1 by 1 in., 1.5 by 1 in., and 2 by 1 in. Four grit choices are available from 40 to 120. All have a 0.25-in.-dia. shank.
