Highlights
  • 4-1/2˝ Type 27 center hole wheel fits 4-1/2˝ right angle grinder to help reach right angles on the workpiece
  • Hard density non-woven material combined with medium to coarse mineral results in superior edgework deburring and polishing
  • Harder material density and increased edge durability over 700 Series Unitized Wheels increases cut and life for heavy-duty tasks
  • Runs clockwise and counterclockwise, allowing greater versatility when paired with tools and machines
  • Open web is load resistant, contributing to longer abrasive service life
  • Non-woven nylon strands will not melt or smear when heated, reducing potential for unwanted marks and blemishes

For stock removal and polishing on tricky areas such as internal right angles, choose the Standard Abrasives™ Type 27 Unitized Wheel - 800 Series for easier access and excellent results. These hard density wheels are designed with extra tough edge durability, making them a good match for heavy-duty edge deburring and stainless steel polishing applications.

Standard Abrasives™ Type 27 Unitized Wheel - 800 Series
Hard density non-woven material combined with medium to coarse mineral results in superior edgework deburring and polishing
Hard Density Wheel Removes Challenging Burrs with Precision and Imparts a Fine Polish
The hardness of this wheel places it on the upper end of the spectrum of aggressiveness among Standard Abrasives™ Unitized Wheels. Given the coarseness of the mineral and greater material density, our Standard Abrasives™ Type 27 Unitized Wheel - 800 Series withstands high-pressure applications and cut aggressively. Use an 800 Series Unitized Wheel for deburring stainless steel pipe thread, wire edges from surgical instruments, stainless steel sinks, tanks and other equipment for the food service industry. It is a prime choice for deburring gears and aircraft wing spars, and breaking edges on aluminum extrusions. When it comes to polishing, trust an 800 Series Wheel to effectively polish stainless steel rule dies, welds on stainless steel sinks, machined surfaces, hand tools and round tubing.

Choose the Right Wheel for Your Stock Removal Application
Our Standard Abrasives™ 800 Series includes three Type 27 Wheels:

Wheel 811
  • Coarse grade aluminum oxide mineral
  • Highest stock removal and edge breaking capability
  • Most aggressive for deburring
  • Capable of replacing 80 & 120 grit coated abrasive discs

Wheel 821
  • Medium grade aluminum oxide mineral
  • High stock removal, while maintaining disc life and productivity
  • Very durable on an edge
  • Capable of replacing 100 & 120 grit coated abrasive discs

Wheel 822
  • Medium grade silicon carbide mineral
  • Rapid stock removal, while providing a clean, bright surface
  • Most effective on stainless steel
  • High cut rate, with long life

Type 27 Fits 4-1/2" Right Angle Grinder
A 4-1/2" Type 27 Wheel (sometimes called a Type 27 Disc) is designed to fit a right angle grinder with a wheel guard, typically used for fiber discs, flap discs, and grinding wheels. Type 27 Wheels have a depressed center to allow grinding at any angle without damaging the surrounding surface with the attachment nut, and are particularly useful for working on internal angles. These unitized wheels are used in conjunction with, and sometimes in lieu of, a coated abrasive resin fiber disc or flap disc. Standard center hole and quick change unitized wheels are also available in a range of sizes (sold separately).

Non-Woven Unitized Construction Offers a Step Up in Density and Durability for Stubborn Burrs and Edgework
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. The wheel is tough enough to complete high-pressure edgework without tearing or otherwise disintegrating. 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.
