Norton Rapid Polish felt polishing discsClick image to enlarge

Saint-Gobain Abrasives has introduced new Norton Rapid Polish felt polishing discs.

The discs feature premium pressed, hardened, thick felt material for smooth surfaces with single digit Ra and mirror finish shine. At 2,000–3,000 RPM the Rapid Polish discs stay cool during operation and do not produce vibration. The soft felt material makes the discs well suited for final finishing.

The discs are available in both depressed center discs with a 5/8"-11" or 7/8" hole, and are also available in 2" or 3" TR (Type III) quick-change discs.

“We are very pleased to offer our customers new Rapid Polish Discs for finishes that users will be proud to show off,” said Michael Radaelli, senior product manager, Norton | Saint-Gobain Abrasives. “For enhancing the finish even further, we recommend applying Rapid Polish polishing compound to the face of the disc before final finishing.” With no odor and minimal to no splatter, the (optional) compound increases cooling while polishing.
