Norton Vortex RapidPrep non-woven discs, belts and wheels from Saint-Gobain’s Norton Abrasives brand feature a non-woven substrate with an improved resin bond system designed to eliminate smearing and loading in surface conditioning applications, and provide improved edge wear.
The engineered Vortex grain technology is a composite of smaller grains combined into a larger grain particle to provide improved surface finish. The RapidPrep products are suited for blending, cleaning and light flash removal on virtually all types of metal parts, and are said to provide increased life over standard aluminum oxide discs as well as improved cut rate for reduced cycle times.
