Norton Abrasives Offers Quick Trim Flap Discs

Norton has two new Norton Quick Trim Flap Discs for the metal fabricating industry. The SG Blaze R980P and TwinStar Quick Trim Flap Discs feature a new flexible, easily trimmed plastic back plate, allowing full use of the flaps. The plastic backing can be easily trimmed back to expose the flaps for extended product life. This reduces materials costs by allowing 100% of the abrasive material to be consumed, the company said.

"The Quick Trim Norton SG Blaze R980P Type 27 flap discs feature the latest-generation ceramic alumina abrasive grain and an improved supersize grinding aid to provide 50-200% longer life than any flap disc on stainless steel, cobalt, chrome, Inconel, titanium and other hard-to-grind materials," said a company spokesperson. "Blaze R980P Quick Trim flap discs offer the high productivity and low total grinding cost. The advanced supersize grinding lubricant also provides faster and cooler cutting for improved part finish and integrity. Durable, Y-weight polyester flaps can improve product life, grain retention and fray resistance. Discs in 4-1/2, 5 and 7 inch sizes are also available with 5/8"-11 hubs for quick disc changes and less downtime.

"Norton Quick Trim TwinStar Type 27 flap discs are engineered for light stock removal, blending and finishing all in one application. They are designed to offer performance and efficiencies on mild carbon steel, ferrous metals and cast iron applications. Higher-performance abrasive flaps are mounted on the new, easy-to-trim plastic back plate for full use of each flap."
