Weldcote trimmable flap discsClick image to enlarge

Weldcote has introduced new trimmable flap discs.

The ability to trim the back plate on the flap discs allows operators to use the discs for a longer period of time, increasing disc life by up to 65 per cent, Weldcote says. Constructed of nylon 6, the backing is durable yet trimmable, and easier to work with than hard plastic. The backing also provides flexibility, which is beneficial for applications with corners.

Weldcote’s trimmable flap discs are available in 11.43, 12.7 and 15.24 cm (4 ½, 5 and 6-in.) sizes, in both high-quality C-PRIME ceramic grain and high-quality Z-PRIME zirconia grain that promote fast metal removal. Both flap disc materials are offered with a standard 2.22 cm (7/8 in.) arbor hole and both feature a compressed shape that was developed to increase product life and reduce inventory costs for the end user.

Designed for applications on carbon-based steels and stainless steel, Weldcote’s trimmable flap discs are lightweight and easy to control, which results in less gouging of the metal material.
