Norton Fiber Discs Enable Faster Cut Rates
Discs are designed for cutting carbon steel and soft-to-grind materials.
Norton Saint-Gobain Abrasives’ BlazeX F970 fiber discs are designed to enable faster rust removal and enhanced cleaning and detailing processes for better finishes. The company says that users performing right-angle grinding on a routine basis will see immediate results due to the discs’ improved microfracturing grain. By consistently exposing sharper grain edges, these discs are said to deliver a better cut rate and longer disc life when compared to blended ceramic alumina discs; and enhance operator control in stock removal, deburring, blending and other applications, according to the company.
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.
Choice of equipment, media and compounds has a major impact on your finishing applications.
