Rapid Prep XHD Abrasive Discs

Saint-Gobain Abrasives will feature its new Norton Rapid Prep XHD Coarse and Medium Discs designed to solve stock removal and blending challenges. The heavy-duty non-woven discs remove weld lines, weld splatter, weld discoloration and blend surfaces in a single step.

XHD Coarse is designed for aggressive weld removal and surface blending on steels, while XHD Medium is suitable for softer metals/alloys. "Users will save labor and consumable costs by reducing application steps as compared with coated flap discs," said a company spokesperson. "The new Norton Rapid Prep XHD discs offer a combination of a conformable fiber matrix and premium ceramic grain, resulting in improved cut control and surface blending over traditional coated flap and fiber discs. Product life is increased and shape integrity is maximized due to the Norton blended fiber web, which dissipates workpiece debris. In addition, the Norton Clean Bond resin system prevents smearing and produces a controlled wear rate."

The new Norton Rapid Prep XHD Discs have 12 sizes offered in three non-woven types: quick change discs from 2" to 4" TR attachment, hook and loop discs in both 7/8" hole and no hole from 4-1/2" to 7" diameter, and speed change discs from 4-1/2" x 5/8"-11 fastener to 7" x 7/8" fastener.
