Weiler Tiger Angled Flap Discs

Weiler Abrasives Group added a new flap disc to its Tiger coated abrasives lineup.

Tiger Angled flap discsNew Tiger Angled flap discs deliver aggressive grinding and long life, along with greater flexibility for grinding fillet welds, T-joints, hard-to-reach places, and for repair and rework. They are ideal for grinding steel, stainless steel, aluminum and other hard-to-grind metals, without wearing prematurely.

The Tiger Angled flap discs feature a 90-degree angled flap design that allows the operator to grind at a higher or lower angle, along with a phenolic backing that provides stability to the flaps. This combination optimizes flap-to-metal contact, resulting in better feel and control for the operator during grinding and finishing. In addition, the angled flaps reduce the risk of gouging the workpiece while grinding fillet welds for a smoother finish.

Because Tiger Angled flap discs remove more metal in less time, operators can get the job done faster. In fact, Tiger Angled flap discs remove more material in one minute — and over the life of the disc — than competitive products, lowering the overall cost to use.

Tiger Angled flap discs are available in 7/8-inch arbor or with a 5/8-inch -11 nut for fast change-over.

Weiler offers Tiger Angled in both a ceramic flap disc and a zirconium flap disc. Both grain types offer a contaminant-free option for stainless steel applications. In addition, the ceramic alumina version features a top coat that grinds cooler to protect valuable parts and prevents loading on softer alloys such as aluminum. The zirconia alumina option features self-sharpening grains that deliver aggressive grinding and long life.
