Norton’s vortex rapid prep non-woven flap discs last longer and produce increased cutting rates and smear-free finishes simultaneously.

Norton patented Vortex agglomerated aluminum oxide grain technology enables the cutting power of a coarser grit while producing a finer finish in one abrasives disc solution. The company reports that based on tests performed, the new non-woven discs can increase material removal rates over 50 per cent compared to non-woven medium grit flap discs.

“Our new vortex rapid prep flap discs are an ideal upgrade from traditional rapid prep single layer hook and loop discs and are a perfect complement to coated flap and fiber discs, generating impressive performance results in blending and finishing,” said Michael Radaelli, senior product manager, Norton.

Ideal for light blending, stripping, edge breaking and surface prep applications in industries such as metal fabrication and welding, aerospace, transportation, energy and construction.
