Highlights
  • Moderately aggressive material offers great versatility and may be used for a variety of light-duty industrial applications, including cleaning and deburring
  • Designed for less aggressive use compared with HP material in the Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend line
  • Multi-purpose abrasive discs work well on most metals
  • Tough nylon web cleans and deburrs while leaving a consistent finish
  • Flexible, pliable open web removes small burrs and surface contaminants
  • Open web is load resistant, limiting buildup of debris that can clog the abrasive
  • Available in various sizes, minerals and grades to accommodate a variety of project needs
  • Built-in 1/4˝ shank securely fastens to a small, straight grinder and eliminates ˝ganging˝ of individual discs
  • Two grades of aluminum oxide to choose from offer varying degrees of aggressiveness and finish: Medium (MED - maroon), and Very Fine (VFN - gray)

A good starting point for many different light-duty applications, the Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend GP Wheel is a versatile non-woven wheel designed to lightly blend, clean, deburr and finish a variety of metals using the edge of the wheel. This multi-purpose wheel leaves a consistent finish.

Moderately Aggressive for Lighter-Weight Applications
The Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend GP Wheel is a great multi-purpose product for general-duty industrial applications. Among the four Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend materials, the GP material is the least 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.

When the job requires a tougher wheel for higher-pressure applications, try using a Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend HP or HS Product.

1, 2 or 3-Ply Wheels with Attached Shank
Choose between 1-ply, 2-ply and 3-ply options in a range of diameters from 2-5". The 1-ply wheel has the greatest flexibility for reaching into tubing and other tight spaces. The 2-ply option provides added stiffness, while the 3-ply wheel is the best choice when strength is desired over flexibility. The permanently affixed 1/4" shank eliminates "ganging" of individual discs to form a sturdier wheel and provides sturdy attachment to the tool.

Use it to remove light oxidation, blend minor surface imperfections, clean surfaces prior to coatings, remove small burrs, and perform basic equipment cleanup.

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.
