1WHAT ARE THE FLAP DISCS FOR?
Flap discs are used to grind specific areas leaving a lower roughness than doing the work with a grinding disc or fiber disc. They can work different types of materials of different hardnesses. They can be manufactured in different types of abrasive fabrics according to the material to be worked.
2IN WHAT DIAMETER ARE FLAP DISCS MADE?
Flap discs are manufactured in diameter 115mm, 125mm, 150mm and 180mm.
3IN WHAT QUALITIES CAN FLAP DISCS BE MADE?
Flap discs can be made of corundum, zirconium, ceramic and silicon carbide cloth.
4WHAT KIND OF BLADE DISC IS APPROPRIATE FOR EACH APPLICATION?
Corundum is used for iron in all grains. Zirconia is suitable for rough grinding. Ceramic is suitable for roughing steel / stainless steel, having a more aggressive behavior than with other minerals, it is applied in coarse grains. Silicon carbide is used for grinding non-ferrous metals and stone.
5WHAT CAN I DO SO THAT MY DISCS DO NOT CRYSTALLIZE OR DOCK OUT?
So that the flap discs do not crystallize or become clogged, we will try to work with coarser grains (40 and 60 grain) since the fine fabric (80 or 120 grain) tends to clog causing the crystallization of the fabric and the heating of the piece to work. There are other Abrasteel products for refining and polishing steels to refine the 40 and 60 grain line.
6WHAT CAN I DO SO THAT THE ALUMINUM SHEET DISCS DO NOT CRYSTALLIZE OR CAUSE IT?
So that the aluminum flap discs are not clogged or crystallized, we can use CEBO ABRASTEEL paste or MATINOX ABRASTEEL LIQUID. This will prevent the aluminum particles from adhering to the abrasive cloth and the disc will not clog or crystallize.
CEBO paste can cause problems when painting in a post-sanding process as CEBO paste is a grease. To solve this problem we can degrease the piece before painting or coating it.
The MATINOX ABRASTEEL liquid is more appropriate for processes where it cannot be degreased, the virtue of the Abrasteel liquid is that it protects the sandpaper from clogging or glazing of the disc without leaving any type of residue, after sanding with MATINOX ABRASTEEL you can paint without having any problem paint adhesion.
LEAVES NO RESIDUE.
