Rapid strip discs offer a semi-flexible open web design that resists loading, conforms to edges, contours and uneven surfaces without gouging, and runs more quietly. The abrasive is uniformly distributed and bonded throughout the wheel for aggressive removal of paint, rust, coatings, light edge burrs, parting lines and flashing. Norton Blaze discs features ceramic aluminia grain, which boasts twice the cut rate and twice the lifespan of silicon carbide. Both the face and edge of the wheel can be used. Use with an angle grinder for removal of paint, rust, coatings, light edge burrs, parting lines and flashingDiscard mount for easy wheel changesType 27 wheel shape (essentially flat with a depressed center)Blaze ceramic aluminia grain boasts 2x cut rate and 2x life over silicon carbideAdvanced resin bond does not shed on rust encrusted pieces, prevents gouging, and does not snag when used for deburringNew coating process covers the entire disc for a more consistent cut rateOpen structure will not clog when used with sticky coatings, adhesives and soft metals Benefits of Non-Woven Discs vs. Fiber Discs, Wire Wheels, and Grinding Wheels: Deburring, blending and finishing can be done with one productPrevents undercutting and gougingProvides a cooler grinding action to lessen the chance of warping or discolorationReduces loading when working with fiberglass, adhesives and soft metalsExcels at stripping coatings and paint off of hard materials like concrete, cement and stoneLess vibration and less noiseSafer than wire wheels
This Perma-SHIELD coated blade gives new life to underpowered saws and produces smooth crosscuts in hardwoods, softwoods and moldings. Coated blades pull 1/3 less on the saw, which translates into 33% more cutting power. Thin kerf blades remove less material than standard carbide blades, thus requiring less horsepower to produce equally good results. The Perma-SHIELD coating covers the blade plate and cutting edge in a protective layer, reducing heat build-up. Perma-SHIELD blades resist binding in large volume cutting, reducing subsequent blade warp. The coating lubricates the blade, allowing it to spin freely, and eliminates pitch and debris build-up on the blade.
