Flap discs for aluminum blending and finishing
- March 20, 2019
Walter Surface Technologies has introduced the new Enduro-Flex ALU flap disc.
Designed for aluminum blending and finishing, the Enduro-Flex ALU flap disc was developed to overcome the challenges that come with working with heat sensitive metals such as aluminum and other non-ferrous alloys.
Aluminum’s high strength-to-weight ratio has long made it a smart choice due to the alloy’s lightweight properties, corrosion resistance and other practical benefits. But when it comes to blending and finishing, it’s a different story on the shop floor.
Enduro-Flex ALU flap discs are formulated to maximize performance and drive productivity. Iron-free, sulfur-free and chlorine-free, Enduro-Flex ALU’s zirconia alumina grain blend optimizes blending and finishing performance on any aluminum surface. Featuring the highest removal rate in the industry and superior performance on non-ferrous alloys and heat-sensitive metals, Enduro-Flex ALU delivers a consistent finish without discoloration.
The special coating prevents load-up and glazing – key features that extend disc life and help cut shop-floor costs. They also feature Walter’s proprietary Eco-Trim trimmable backing, which can triple disc life and boost savings.
