Designed for easy attachment to a straight handheld grinder, the Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend HS Wheel with 1-3 disc layers features high strength (HS) nylon material that withstands challenging edgework and irregular surfaces. It is an excellent choice for cleaning and light deburring while achieving a final finish or polished piece.
Standard Abrasives High Strength Medium A/O Type F-Blue Wheels
Medium and Very Fine Grades are 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 Wheel 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 while minimizing gouging or marring of the substrate.
Aluminum oxide abrasive grain bonded to the nylon strands produces a uniform scratch pattern - ideal for satin or grain finishing. Use a Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend HS Wheel for high luster and decorative finishing on brass, steel, bronze, pewter, and stainless steel, as well as plated plastics. The permanently affixed 1/4" shank eliminates "ganging" of individual discs to form a sturdier wheel.
1, 2 or 3-Ply Wheels
Choose between 1-ply, 2-ply and 3-ply options. 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.
HS Medium (Blue Wheel) Applications
- Edge breaking, deburring and finishing of edges and welds
- Satin and grain finishing of metal surfaces
- Cleaning surface contamination
- 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
Standard Abrasives High Strength Very Fine A/O-Pink Wheel
HS Very Fine (Maroon Wheel) Applications
- 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
When your application calls for an even lighter-duty disc or if the final finish isn't as critical, we suggest our Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend GP or HP products. For off-hand and automated finishing processes, we recommend the loftier Buff and Blend HS-F Wheel.
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.
The Many Benefits of Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend Products
Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend products invigorate deburring, cleaning, blending and finishing applications by helping operators reduce finishing steps, minimize costs and achieve greater throughput. Each Buff and Blend product and grade offers unique benefits, so operators can choose from a versatile range of options to ensure superior performance on specific applications.
