Product Details
  • High strength (HS) Buff and Blend material delivers the best results for light deburring and final finishing
  • Dense, stiff construction withstands high pressure without folding over, improving productivity
  • Produces a uniform, consistent, smear-free finish on ferrous and non-ferrous metals
  • Aluminum Oxide mineral cuts sharp, helps produce a consistent scratch pattern, and works well on many different metals
  • Flexible, pliable open web removes burrs and surface contaminants without gouging the substrate
  • Open web is load resistant, limiting buildup of debris that can clog the abrasive and prolonging service life
  • Center hole discs come in a range of medium to large sizes to meet many different project specifications
  • Three grades to choose from for varying degrees of aggressiveness and finish: Coarse (CRS - green), Medium (MED - blue), and Very Fine (VFN - maroon)

High Strength non-woven nylon material ensures that our Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend HS Disc maintains stiffness and won't tear or fray when faced with challenging edgework or irregular surfaces. Within the Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend product line, the HS Disc offers the best performance for cleaning and light deburring while achieving a final finish or polished piece.

Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend HS Disc
High Strength is the best material for light deburring and finishing applications
Three Grades Well-Suited for Deburring and Finishing Irregular-Shaped Parts
Among the four Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend materials, HS material is the most stiff, durable and aggressive. Given its strength and durability, our Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend HS Disc is a good match for irregular-shaped parts, such as pipe threads, the edges of molded glass containers, and non-ferrous die cast molded parts. It removes small, stubborn burrs and cuts sharp to produce a consistent finish. Non-woven construction makes the material responsive to contours and extrusions, so it is unlikely to gouge or mar the substrate while achieving an aggressive cut.

Aluminum oxide abrasive grain bonded to the nylon strands produces a uniform scratch pattern - perfect for satin or grain finishing. Use a Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend HS Disc for final finishing on brass, steel, bronze, pewter, and stainless steel, as well as plated plastics. If desired, discs may be ganged on a shaft to form a wheel for off-hand applications.

When a very fine high luster and decorative finish is desirable on pieces such as builders hardware, choose the HS Disc in MED or VFN grade. For applications that may require a faster cut or coarser finish, choose the CRS grade disc. The coarser scratch pattern of the CRS disc also makes it ideal for satin and grain finishing applications, as well as blending and cleaning surface imperfections.

HS Coarse Features and Applications
  • Produces a uniform, coarse finish similar to Surface Conditioning material
  • Capable of withstanding high contact pressure without folding over when run as a plain disc
  • Easily finishes contoured parts
  • Durable enough to finish edges and welds
  • Satin and grain finishing of metal surfaces
  • Blending and cleaning surface imperfections
  • Blending out tool marks
  • Markets include stainless steel fabricators, plumbing fixtures, metal fabricators, door hardware, food equipment Manufacturers, builder's hardware, aluminum extruded products, and aerospace
  • Green
HS Medium Features and Applications
  • Rigid, durable construction accomplishes edge breaking, deburring and finishing finish edges and welds
  • Satin and grain finishing of metal surfaces
  • Cleaning surface contamination
  • Deburring and edge breaking
  • Capable of withstanding high contact pressure without folding over when run as a plain disc
  • Easily finishes contoured parts
  • Produces a clean finish, without irregular scratches and "sparkles"
  • Markets include stainless steel fabricators, plumbing fixtures, door hardware, food equipment manufacturers, aluminum extruded products, aircraft engine manufacturers, orthopedic implants
  • Blue
HS Very Fine Features and Applications
  • Excels at light deburring and final finishing of small, irregular shaped parts
  • Light edge breaking on machined or stamped parts
  • Edge radiusing
  • Deburring threaded parts
  • Pre-finish of precious metals prior to polishing
  • Markets include aerospace, aircraft equipment, foundries, machine builders, machine shops, and mold and die shops
  • Maroon
When a very fine high luster and decorative finish is desirable on pieces such as builders hardware, choose the HS Disc in MED or VFN grade.
GP Disc has moderately aggressive material that offers great versatility in light-duty industrial applications
When your application calls for a lighter-duty disc or if the final finish isn't as critical, we suggest our Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend GP or HP Disc. For off-hand and automated finishing processes, we recommend the loftier Buff and Blend HS-F Disc.

Load-Resistant Construction Boosts Life and Performance
Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend products are load-resistant to keep you cutting with fresh mineral. The gaps in the open web allow unwanted swarf to escape. Consequently, less debris clogs the abrasive, so the mineral can stay fresh, keep cutting sharp and deliver a consistent cut over the life of the product. As the fibers break down and fresh mineral is exposed, it reduces the likelihood of dull or blunt mineral smearing the surface, contributing to cleaner surfaces and less re-work. Furthermore, manual fatigue that may result from applying heavy pressure to a dull abrasive is reduced.
