CERAMIC ALUMINA

CERAMIC PLUS

ZIRCONIA ALUMINA

ALUMINUM OXIDE

ALUMINUM OXIDE

GRIT: 24; 36; 40; 50; 60; 80; 100; 120
PRODUCTS: Body Cones; Belts; Cartridge Rolls; Cone Points; Cords; Tape; Flap Discs; Flap Wheels; PSA/Hook & Loop Discs; Quick Change Sanding Discs; Resin Fiber Discs; Sanding Sheets; Shop Rolls; Specialty Abrasives; Spiral Bands; Spiral Sleeves
DESCRIPTION: Our Aluminum Oxide grains are popular for universal use. This grain is a great choice on a wide range of materials. It can be used on ferrous (alloyed & unalloyed steels), including high speed steel, stainless steel, and cast iron. It can also be used on non-ferrous materials including aluminum, copper, brass and zinc. In addition, they can be used on composite materials such as plastic and wood. Unlike the other Aluminum Oxide grain (below), this one does not have a calcium stearate coating, which means you can still use it for softer materials, like bronze, copper, and brass, but without the added cost of the stearate.
BEST USED ON: Non-Ferrous materials; Aluminum; Brass; Copper; Zinc; Plastic; Wood

ALUMINUM OXIDE W/ CALCIUM STEARATE LIQUEFYING AGENT 

GRIT: 24; 36; 40; 50; 60
PRODUCTS: Flap Discs
DESCRIPTION: Our Aluminum Oxide Plus flap discs run cool because of its added calcium stearate coating. This coating liquefies under heat which keeps the material cooler. The AO+ is specially designed for softer metals, specifically aluminum, as the coating will help prevent loading and glazing, which clogs the flap disc with swarf and possibly ruining your workpiece. They are also an excellent choice for blending stainless steel. Our flap discs are contaminant-free, meaning iron, sulfur, and chlorine are less than .1% present.
BEST USED ON: Softer materials; Non-Ferrous materials; Aluminum; Bronze; Copper; Gold; Lead; Stainless Steel

CERAMIC ALUMINA W/ GRINDING AID & SELF SHARPENING ACTION

GRIT: 24; 36; 40; 50; 60; 80; 100; 120
PRODUCTS: Flap Discs
DESCRIPTION: Ceramic flap discs run cooler than other abrasive grains because of their added grinding aid. While dissipating heat, it helps keep the disc cool, which prolongs the lifespan. On difficult-to-grind materials, ceramic grain should be the first choice as they are optimal for aggressive material removal. Ceramic flap discs have self sharpening grains which result in a consistent finish and provide steady, consistent sharp edges throughout the life of the disc. They run cooler than zirconia and aluminum oxide flap discs and reduce heat build up.
BEST USED ON: Hard-To-Grind materials; Soft Carbon Steel; Cast Iron

CERAMIC ALUMINA

GRIT: 24; 36; 40; 50; 60; 80; 120
PRODUCTS: Belts; Flap Wheels; Quick Change Sanding Discs; Resin Fiber Discs; Specialty Abrasives;
DESCRIPTION: Ceramic flap discs run cooler than other abrasive grains because of their added grinding aid. While dissipating heat, it helps keep the disc cool, which prolongs the lifespan helping you save. On difficult to grind materials, ceramic grain should be the first choice as they are optimal for aggressive material removal. Ceramic flap discs have self sharpening grains which result in a consistent finish and provide steady, consistent sharp edges throughout the life of the disc. They run cooler than zirconia and aluminum oxide flap discs and reduce heat build up.
BEST USED ON: Hard Alloys; Steels; Exotic materials

SILICON CARBIDE

GRIT: 
PRODUCTS: Cords; Tape; Flap Wheels; PSA & Hook & Loop Discs; Quick Change Sanding Discs; Sanding Sheets; Spiral Bands
DESCRIPTION: This is the hardest and sharpest of all the abrasive grains for the coated applications. Used in low pressure applications, such as paint preparation, Silicon Carbide is a very fast cutting material that breaks down faster than Aluminum Oxide, leaving a fine finish.
BEST USED ON: Steel; Cast Iron; Tungsten Carbide; Aluminum & Non-Ferrous Metal; Plastic; Rubber

ZIRCONIA ALUMINA W/ GRINDING AID & POLYCOTTON BACKING 

GRIT: 24; 36; 40; 50; 60; 80; 100; 120
PRODUCTS: Flap Discs
DESCRIPTION: This grain material is made with multiple layers of polycotton and stacked into a 3-Dimensional form, consistently exposing new sharp grains to the work surface. With a high Zirconia grain concentration and a specialty resin bond, you’re going to get the best performance out of this material.
BEST USED ON:  Heat-Sensitive Alloys; Stainless Steel; Nickel Alloys; Titanium

ZIRCONIA ALUMINA W/DUAL ACTION GRINDING AIDS

GRIT: 24; 36; 40; 50; 60; 80
PRODUCTS: Flap Discs
DESCRIPTION: Our zirconia flap discs are phenolic resin bonded to a reinforced fiberglass backing that wears with the abrasive flaps. Multiple layers of poly-cotton backed abrasives are stacked in 3-dimensional form, constantly exposing new sharp grains to the work surface. These discs have a high zirconia grain concentration with a specialty resin bond, which accounts for their superior performance. Our zirconia flap discs are manufactured with premium VSM materials. These discs are specifically designed for superior work on stainless steels and carbon steels.
BEST USED ON: Heavy Duty Metals; Stainless Steel

ZIRCONIA ALUMINA 

GRIT: 24; 36; 40; 50; 60; 80; 100; 120
PRODUCTS: Belts; Flap Wheels; Quick Change Sanding Discs; Spiral Bands
DESCRIPTION: This material grain is a mixture of Zirconia Dioxide and Aluminum Oxide. Zirconia Alumina is good for high stock removal applications and can be used on stainless steel and other challenging alloys. It can handle the heavier removal because of its reduced heat generation and continuous cutting edges with an additional lubricated layer. With the fuse of the two materials together, this creates a fine crystalline micro-structure that out-performs any brown fused aluminum oxide.
BEST USED ON: Steels & Steel Alloys

ZIRCONIA ALUMINA W/ GRINDING AID

GRIT: 36; 40; 50; 60; 80; 120
PRODUCTS: Quick Change Sanding Discs
DESCRIPTION: This grain has a continuous self-sharpening grit. This grain material is good for aggressive and heavy use applications where long life and high material removal rates are desired. With its high cutting performance, it still manages to be a longer-lasting material and suppress heat. Zirconia Alumina with a Grinding Aid is used for high carbon & alloy steel and stainless steel.
BEST USED ON: Metal Working; Carbon Steel; Cast Iron; Nickel Alloys

GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS IN THE SELECTION OF GRITS

40 GRIT coarse for extra heavy deburring or grinding

60 – 80 grit medium for medium deburring and finishing

120 GRIT and finer for cleaning and final finishing

COATED ABRASIVE MATERIAL TYPES FOR METALWORKING

GOOD – Aluminum oxide is a general purpose grain and suitable for most general purpose applications. It is specified for use on wood and most metals.

BETTER – Zirconia alumina grains are both sharp and durable, providing fast stock removal and longer life. They are used to greatest advantage in coarse grits on heavy-duty metalworking stock removal applications.

BEST – Ceramic grain series are special products for aggressive and cool grinding. These abrasives ensure faster grinding while at the same instance offering better surface quality and excellent stock removal rates. The cool grinding properties ensures an extension of the service life and prevents surface discoloration. Ceramics are specifically applicable for grinding high alloyed steels, titanium, nickel alloys and all extremely hard materials.
