Types of Quick Change Sanding Disc

Quick Change Sanding Discs are commonly used in the applications of leveling,  finishing, grinding, deburring, and mixing. Thanks to their twist-on-and-off attaching systems, they remove the need for installation equipment, allowing for a fast disc change and optimizing efficiency by minimizing downtime. 

Sanding Discs are suitable for most forms of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, composites, and fiberglass for stock removal.

Quick Change Sanding Discs works with the right angle grinders. Usually, these grinders are operated by air, but they can also be portable electric grinders.

Quick Changes Sanding Disc Materials list

Sanding Discs not only minimize grinding time, but also reduce costs, and prevent premature wear by choosing the correct abrasive material for your surface. For example, aluminum oxide is a great all-around abrasive material, while diamond is used on particular materials such as ceramic.

Different Types of Coated & Non-Woven Abrasives Sanding Discs-

  1. Adhesive-Backed/PSA Discs are Used for mixing, finishing, and polishing, also suitable for contoured surfaces. The PSA Discs are heat resistant and are made with a flexible adhesive backing that is easy to mount or remove from the backing pad.

  2. Fiber Discs are used for stock removal, grinding, mixing, and weld dressing. They are built and resistant to tearing and loading with a fiber backing. For mounting on the sander or grinder, a backing pad with retainer nut, adhesive, or clamp is required.

  3. Flap Discs are used for stock removal, grinding, blending, deburring, finishing, and polishing. They are constructed with layered flaps mounted on a rigid backing. Flap discs mount directly on the sander or grinder with a through-hole or threaded hub.

  4. Hook and Loop Discs are used for mixing, deburring, and finishing. They are equipped with a system of fastening that allows the hooks of a backing pad to be connected to the abrasive disc loops. This provides a stable hold and makes quick removal possible.

  5. Slotted Overlap Discs- are used for mixing, deburring, and finishing. They are composed of layered slots that contract to match a workpiece's internal diameter. They are installed for use with most drill chucks on a threaded mandrel.
