SG BLAZE R980 flap and Speed-Lok discs last 50 to 200 percent longer on hard-to-grind materials


Sporting a distinctive grain-side color – blaze orange – the new Norton SG® (seeded gel) BLAZE R980 discs have demonstrated in side-by-side production tests their ability to cut faster than any other disc, enabling manufacturers to lower total grinding costs on stainless steel, cobalt, chrome, inconel, titanium and other hard-to-grind materials. The discs feature a completely new, sharper ceramic grain, improved Y-weight polyester backing, and supersize grinding aid. They are an expansion to the BLAZE product line of coated abrasive belts introduced late last year. The exceptional performance of BLAZE R980 discs is due to the outstanding wear resistance of the improved Norton SG grain, which leads to cooler, faster cutting. While traditional grain shapes are “blocky” and do not cut with optimum aggressiveness, this latest generation of sharper ceramic grains presents keener cutting edges to the work piece. In addition, each grain continually fractures in the grinding process, along sub-micron “faults” in the crystalline structures, to repeatedly expose new sharp cutting edges, resulting in greater disc durability, faster cut rate, and improved finish. The Type 29 conical shape of the Norton SG BLAZE R980 flap discs provides maximum contact with the work piece and is the best choice when speed is a primary consideration. With BLAZE R980 Speed-Lok® discs, operators can change discs quickly, increase grinding time and complete more work per shift, thanks to twist-on/twist-off, tool-free mounting. In on-the-job tests in the metal fabricating, welding, and aerospace markets, where cut rate and durability are of paramount importance, the BLAZE R980 flap discs and Speed-Lok discs have outperformed all competitive ceramic, zirconia and aluminum oxide discs. BLAZE R980 Type 29 flap discs are available in 4_", 5", and 7" diameters with 5/8"-11 hub and 7/8" hole in 36, 40, 60 and 80 grit sizes. BLAZE R980 Speed-Lok discs are available in 1_", 2" and 3" diameters, 36, 50, 60 and 80 grit sizes with TR and TS mounts.
