Designed for deburring slots, gears, stampings and castings, and cleaning pipe threads, Rex-Cut Products’ Type 1 abrasive wheels feature multiple layers of cotton fiber that are impregnated with aluminum oxide or silicon carbide abrasives and laminated, pressed and bonded into dense wheels. The wheels continuously expose fresh abrasives as they work and are suited for aluminum, steel, stainless steel, titanium, Inconel and other exotics metals. Applications include aircraft production, metal fabrication and pipe thread maintenance.

The wheels are available in sizes ranging from 1 inch to 4 inches in diameter and 1/32- to ½-inch thicknesses for reaching into slots and crevices that are too narrow for conventional unitized wheels. They are available in coarse, medium, fine, and very-fine grits with soft or hard bonds.

The company’s Sigma Green grinding wheels use fast, chatter-free cutting action to cleanly remove welds on steel, stainless steel, Inconel, titanium and other alloys without discoloration and warping. Made from a zirconia/ceramic grain with a proprietary bonding formulated to help prevent corrosion, the wheels cut faster on 316 SS, run cooler and produce a better finish than conventional aluminum-oxide wheels, the company says.

The grinding wheels are available in 4-, 4 ½-, 5- and 7-inch diameter sizes to fit right angle grinders, and are offered with or without hubs. They are virtually iron-free.

    Immersion tin and lead-free hot air solder leveling (HASL) coatings based on SnCu or SnAgCu alloys are widely used as surface finish materials for printed circuit boards (PCB). These coatings prevent the underlying copper from corrosion and preserve its solderability during lead-free assembly processes and for a long storage life of PCBs.
