Expanded Resin Fiber Disc Optimizes Grinding Time and Cut Rates

Weiler Abrasives Group's expanded resin fiber discs (RFDs) offering includes five products for varying performance requirements: Tiger Ceramic; Zirc and Aluminum; and Wolverine Zirc and Aluminum Oxide. These discs are designed to provide an aggressive cut rate and a smooth finish on tool steel, aluminum and any material in between. The products are suitable for heavy stock removal, edge chamfering, weld blending, grinding and surface preparation and finishing.

Featuring advanced grain formulas, along with an enhanced design that minimizes loading, glazing and grain stripping, the Tiger and Wolverine RFDs include heavy-duty vulcanized fiber backing to withstand the toughest jobs. In addition to standard 7/8 arbor discs, a quick-change hub option reduces downtime and eliminates the need for tools and disc nuts.

As part of Weiler's maximum performance line of RFDs, Tiger Ceramic features an advanced, self-sharpening ceramic grain that delivers greater stock removal with a finer scratch pattern, along with an increased life and cut rate. A top coat grinds cool, reducing heat discoloration and loading. This disc is suited for work on armored steel, stainless and tooled steel, Inconel and more, in applications requiring high removal rates.

Tiger Zirc and Aluminum are part of Weiler's high performance line of RFDs. Tiger Zirc leverages a unique blend of self-sharping Zirconia Alumina and Ceramic Alumina grains for fast cut rates, increased consistency and a long life. This makes them suitable for improving productivity and cost savings on light to heavy pressure grinding applications on materials such as steel, stainless steel and cast iron. Tiger Aluminum provides a non-loading solution for grinding aluminum and other non-ferrous metals. A top coating releases lubrication when grinding to reduce heat build-up and allow the metal to shed for higher cut rates, longer life and an enhanced finish.

Wolverine Zirc and Alumina Oxide RFDs are designed to deliver fast, clean cut rates and consistent performance on general purpose applications.
