CGW-Camel Grinding Wheels has added a line of surface preparation aluminum oxide and silicon carbide wheels and discs. The surface conditioning line is designed for blending, smoothing, and finishing stainless steel, steel, aluminum, and nonferrous metals.
Made from nonwoven material impregnated with abrasive grains, the products remove paint, rust, and welding and cutting discoloration from stainless steel. The Type 27 shape surface preparation wheels are available in aluminum oxide and silicon carbide grains with 4-, 4.5-, and 7-in. diameters. They are designed with reduced backing to minimize workpiece scratches and allow for full use of the wheel material.
The maroon-colored aluminum oxide products have a fine grit size, making them suitable for cleaning, blending, and finishing stainless steel. The gray-colored silicon carbide products are very fine in grit size and provide light finishes on metal and satin-finish aluminum.
