Highlights
  • High edge durability and flexibility
  • Designed for blending, coating removal, finishing, and light deburring
  • Aluminum Oxide on RC material provides good initial and extended cut rate
  • Best material for general use and average pressure usage
  • Most efficient on flat surfaces made of composites or soft metals
  • Available with Hook and Loop attachment

The Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning RC Disc combines edge durability and flexibility with high initial and extended cut rate to create a great all-around disc pad for deburring, blending, cleaning and finishing of composites or other soft metals.

Tough Woven Fabric
Our Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning Discs provide a more compact structure of non-woven fibers than Buff & Blend products. Our RC disc has a woven fabric (scrim) embedded in the nylon structure to provide additional strength and durability. This helps extend the life of the disc and allows for extended use on ferrous materials where final finishing is important. This material is great for general use, delivering a solid mix of durability, flexibility, and cut rate.

Mixed Materials
Our Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning RC Discs are made of a tough, but flexible nylon mesh that fits any contoured surface. This mesh is also laced with aluminum oxide abrasive. Aluminum oxide discs are a good match for operators who desire an all-purpose versatility and economy. The mineral cuts fast while blending and deburring and should be used for applications on ferrous metals and composites. Aluminum oxide discs feature a premium grain with higher fracture strength, meaning the mineral will fragment and renew more readily. They are available in grades ranging from Very Fine to Extra Coarse.

Strong Backing for Better Performance
For the best results, it is recommended that a Standard Abrasives™ brand holder pad be used. Tests have shown that surface conditioning discs, when used in conjunction with a Standard Abrasives holder pad, have a greater durability and performance rate. These pads also assure that pressure is applied evenly all the way to the edge of the disc.
