Saint-Gobain Abrasives (Worcester, MA) offers new Norton Rapid Prep XHD Coarse and Medium Discs to solve users’ most aggressive stock removal and blending challenges. The extra heavy-duty non-woven discs remove weld lines, weld splatter, weld discoloration and blend surfaces in a single step. Specifically:
- XHD Coarse is ideal for surface blending on steels, while XHD Medium works well on softer metals/ alloys.
- Compared with coated flap discs, users will save significant labor and consumable costs by reducing application steps.
- The new Norton Rapid Prep XHD discs offer a unique combination of a conformable fiber matrix and premium ceramic grain, resulting in improved cut control and surface blending over traditional coated flap and fiber discs.
- Product life is increased and shape integrity is maximized due to the Norton blended fiber web which dissipates work-piece debris. In addition, the Norton Clean Bond resin system prevents smearing and produces a controlled wear rate.
