A good starting point for many different light-duty applications, the Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend GP Disc is a versatile non-woven abrasive disc designed to lightly blend, clean, deburr and finish a variety of metals.
Moderately Aggressive for Lighter-Weight Applications
Our Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend GP Disc is a great multi-purpose product for general-duty industrial applications. One of five Buff and Blend materials, the maroon GP material is moderately aggressive. Use it to remove light oxidation, blend minor surface imperfections, clean surfaces prior to coatings, remove small burrs, and perform basic equipment cleanup. A flexible open web conforms to workpiece contours, radii and internal diameters. Its non-woven construction makes the disc spongy and responsive. If desired, discs may be ganged on a shaft to form a wheel and accommodate larger workpieces. When the job requires a tougher disc for higher-pressure applications, we recommend using a Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend HP or HS Disc. Quick change discs are also available.
Options to Suit Many Different Surfaces
Versatile and multi-purpose, Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend GP Disc comes in a range of minerals, grades and sizes to suit many different applications. It works well on a variety of substrates, including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, aluminum, high nickel/chrome alloys and stainless steel.
The Many Benefits of Standard Abrasives™ Non-Woven Products
Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend non-woven products offer many benefits. Varying Buff and Blend materials help distinguish Buff and Blend products from each other, but all Buff and Blend products have an open web. The open web combines abrasive mineral and non-woven nylon fibers with a resin-reinforced bond. The resin bond securely anchors mineral to the fibers, making for a strong, durable abrasive.
Gaps between fibers allow swarf to escape, so the abrasive does not get clogged with debris. Minimizing swarf and debris prolongs abrasive service life and keeps minerals cutting sharper for longer. Nylon fibers won't splinter during grinding, offering a good alternative to steel wool. Moreover, as the fibers break down and fresh mineral is exposed, it reduces the likelihood of the disc smearing the surface. Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend products deliver a consistent cut and finish - part after part.
