A Flap Disc is the ideal tool for stock removal, grinding and blending of welds, castings and other metal finishing applications! They are available in 4", 4-1/2" and 7" diameters to fit on an angle grinder and grits 40, 60 and 80 are by far the most popular. Abrasive Resource stocks these heavy duty overlap discs in a premium closed coat blue Alumina Zirconia grain designed for metalworking.The backing is made from either a non-flexible, consumable fiberglass in a conical, T-29 shape or a semi-flexible plastic backing on the flat, T-27 shape.
There is a great time savings to be realized from using flap discs compared to the old two-step method of first using a grinding wheel for rough work, then changing to a finer sanding disc for finishing and polishing. A flap disc goes from rough grinding to fine finishing in one operation with a significant reduction in downtime.
