What You Should Know About a Flap Disc Grinder

If you’re in the metal fabrication industry, you should be aware of the versatility of flap discs. Different types of abrasive grains and grit sizes suit various requirements. There is an option for you, whether for stock removal or smoothing out surface imperfections. These are the types of abrasive grits commonly available.

  • A ceramic flap disc possesses a microcrystalline structure that allows self-sharpening due to its friability at high pressure. As a result, you’re continuously using a sharp edge to operate on the surface of the workpiece. This disc remains sharper for longer because of this process and can last a long time. Furthermore, because it finishes the job faster, there is less build-up of heat which reduces glazing and improves efficiency.
  • Zirconia Alumina is another type of disc that’s available with self-sharpening properties. These discs are ideal for grinding rigid materials such as stainless steel and carbon. The crystalline structure of this material makes it suitable for high-performance projects, and you can depend on its longevity.
  • Aluminium oxide is another option that you can use for grinding steel, but you can also use this disc for high tensile bronze alloys and other aluminium items. This material can vary in quality, but it is a friable grain. The carbon content and purity of the aluminium dictate the strength of the abrasiveness.

 

Tips for Maintaining Your Flap Disk

Metal fabrication and finishing industries gravitate towards coated abrasive flap discs used on angle grinders, whether portable electric or pneumatic. However, incorrect use or treatment can result in quick damage to the disc leading to further costs. These are essential points to remember when using flap discs.

  • It’s critical to use flap discs at the correct angle and on the proper surface. Getting this wrong can lead to epoxy wear which, causes backing disc damage and even snagging. The backing of the disc can completely break apart or the flaps may separate. To avoid this, use Type 27 discs at an angle between zero and 15 degrees, while Type 29 discs need an angle between 15 and 25 degrees. You should never use it flat or on the edge.
  • You must use flap discs with a grinder that has guards. The guard must be in top condition and feature between you and the disc. If the backing breaks or the flaps begin separating for some reason, the guard collects the pieces and protects you from injury.
  • Before you start using a flap disc, it’s essential to inspect the item. Look for any signs of damage that could have occurred while in transit. Furthermore, if you’ve dropped the disc or mishandled it, it can break easily, which is why you should never use a disc that’s fallen on the floor.
