Walter Surface Technologies’ Enduro-Flex finishing discs feature a flap configuration, and a cloth and abrasive composition designed to increase surface finish consistency and material removal. The discs’ patented backing can be trimmed down, increasing longevity.
According to the company, a 5-inch disc with Grit 40 removes as much as 2,500 g over its lifespan, and performance is comparable in other disc and grit sizes. The discs’ longevity results in fewer disc changeovers as well as reduced waste over the long-term, making it suitable for finishing steel and stainless steel, aluminum, and other alloys.
