Strong and durable, the Standard Abrasives™ General Purpose Plus Wheel is the best Standard Abrasives™ wheel for deburring, blending and cleaning when a consistent cut rate and wheel durability are a primary requirement.
The Standard Abrasives™ General Purpose Plus Wheel is a convolute wheel that winds an open web of abrasive grain, nylon fibers and resin around a core. The wheel provides excellent durability for the toughest edge and flat surface deburring applications. It's great for medium to heavy burr removal on parts with heavy edges and turbine blades. It may also be used for machine and belt mark blending, as well as fine finishing on parts like surgical tools.
The wheel utilizes either silicon carbide or aluminum oxide — and are available in medium to hard densities, ranging from 8 to 10. Together, these properties combine to cut aggressively, maintain wheel shape and stand up to edges. Nylon fibers in the open web break down while deburring the surface, exposing fresh, sharp mineral. The wheel breakdown contributes to consistent cutting action. Gaps between the nylon fibers allow swarf and debris to escape, keeping the mineral sharp and preventing blunt or dull edges that might gouge or blemish the surface of the workpiece. Subsequently, smear-resistant finishes result.
Tips for Optimal Use
As a convolute wheel, the Standard Abrasives™ General Purpose Plus Wheel should run at recommended operating speeds, using low to medium pressure, and in the direction of the arrow imprinted on the wheel. Following these recommended measures will help to ensure operator safety and optimal performance of the wheel. Using lubricants may also help wash away unwanted swarf and debris and keep the abrasive running cool. The wheel may be used on straight shaft stationary and portable tools, feed-through machines and automated equipment. The versatile range of tools that the wheel may be used with gives operators an added level of flexibility and convenience, as they may manipulate the wheel to meet their unique project needs.
