Abrasive Flap Wheels - Spindle Mounted

Abrasive Flap Wheels - Spindle Mounted

Abrasive flap wheels are available in a variety of grit types and dimensions and can be used for anything from shaping and general finishing to aggressive stock removal on stainless steel as well as everything in between.

Choosing Your Flap Wheel:

Ceramic - Premium, high performance flap wheels with aggressive stock removal, our recommendation when stock removal is the primary focus

Aluminium Oxide - The traditional spindle mounted flap wheel, ideal for general purpose use and finishing. Use the Ceramic if any kind of stock removal is required

Tex / Scotchbrite Flap Wheel- A range of surface conditioning flap wheels for scratch removal, surface damage removal and blending to leave a structured satin finish. For even longer life and increased results, take a look at our unitised range here.

Clean & Strip Flap Wheel - For rust, paint and other coating removal from stainless steel without damaging the surface below. Looking for a better finish? See our F-Line range of unitised products which leave a satin finish and are also great on softer metals such as aluminium.

If you are unable to find the flap wheel which fits your requirements take a look at our large range of unitised abrasives, which provides aggressive stock removal, through to fine polishing depending on your application.

Application - Removing an Internal Weld from Stainless Steel Tube (40mm x 20mm x 6mm)

Step One: The Ceramic 60 grit flap wheel provides enough aggression to remove the weld from the inside of the stainless steel tube very quickly without using too much pressure and putting uneccessary heat into the workpiece.

The high performance 60 grit flap wheel also provides a consistent, replicable finish which would not be possible with other methods.

Step Two: The surface finish you are left with can easily be refined by missing the 80 grit flap wheel stage and going straight to the 120 grit ceramic flap wheel.

Step Three: Depending on the quality of finish required you can further enhance the finish by using the high strength medium grade stars, followed by the SA5 unitised stars if are very fine, pre-polished finish is required.

Alternative for Mounted Points

Nobody likes using mounted point grinding stones.  Mounted points are hard to work with, are very noisy in use, leave a poor finish which often requires a lot of re-work and can only be used for short periods because of their high vibration characteristic. 

Our new Cibo ceramic P40 grit abrasive flap wheels will provide a realistic alternative to mounted points.  With high aggression, rapid material stock removal and a great finish.
