Non-Woven Abrasive DiscsFebruary 26, 2020
At FABTECH, Saint-Gobain Abrasives debuted Norton Rapid Prep XHD Coarse and Medium discs, made for aggressive-stock-removal and blending applications. The heavy-duty non-woven discs remove weld lines, weld splatter and weld discoloration, and blend surfaces in a single step.
XHD Coarse is ideal for surface blending on steels, while XHD Medium works well on softer metals/alloys. Compared with coated flap discs, users can save on labor and consumable costs by reducing application steps, according to company officials.The Norton Rapid Prep XHD discs offer the combination of a conformable fiber matrix and premium ceramic grain, reportedly resulting in improved cut control and surface blending over traditional coated flap and fiber discs. A blended fiber web helps increase product life and maximize shape integrity by dissipating workpiece debris. In addition, the Norton Clean Bond resin system prevents smearing and produces a controlled wear rate.
