A medium to hard density wheel engineered with increased edge durability, the Standard Abrasives™ Quick Change Silicon Carbide 700 Series Unitized Wheel is a good match for tough finishing applications on smaller areas of the workpiece. This non-woven abrasive wheel provides the durability needed for achieving a fine finish even on hard metals such as titanium.
Get high performance and durability in a variety of cleaning, deburring, finishing and polishing applications.
Non-Woven Unitized Construction Offers a Step Up in Density and Durability for Stubborn Surfaces
Standard Abrasives™ Unitized Wheels are a great match for tough deburring, cleaning, blending and finishing applications. They come in a broad range of densities and grades to suit different metals, the degree of aggressiveness required, shape of the part, and desired finish. Although used for some of the same tasks as Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend products, they are designed with a far stronger and denser construction to support more aggressive applications and accomplish material removal more rapidly. Even though unitized wheels are much stiffer products, the non-woven nylon fibers of the wheel maintain the advantage of responding to surface irregularities while preserving the geometry of the piece, and produce a consistent finish.
Unitized wheels are created by starting with layers of open web material that combines non-woven fiber strands and abrasive mineral with a tough resin bond. These layers of web are then cured and compressed together. By fusing layers of open web, the abrasive gains more toughness and durability, so it can withstand repeated wear.
Ultimately, the wheel's durability is what makes it such a good match for edges. Regardless of the diameter or thickness of the wheel, it maintains its structural integrity to remain a stiff and long-lasting abrasive even under high pressure. Additionally, as the layers wear, the wheel can be dressed to maintain its shape.
Load-Resistance Boosts Life and Performance
Standard Abrasives™ Unitized Wheels 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™ Non-Woven Products
Standard Abrasives™ Unitized Wheels offer many benefits for heavy-duty jobs. For all the aforementioned reasons, Standard Abrasives™ Unitized Wheels invigorate deburring, cleaning, blending and finishing applications by helping operators reduce finishing steps, minimize costs and achieve greater throughput.
