The Standard Abrasives™ Aluminum Oxide Slotted Cloth Disc compresses when entering a hole or cylinder to provide full contact with inside diameters. Typically used in push applications, it is useful for light deburring, blending, cleaning, polishing, and chamfering applications on steel, rubber, plastic and composites. It features a threaded eyelet arbor hole for mandrel attachment.

Standard Abrasives™ Aluminum Oxide Slotted Cloth Disc
Full Contact with Internal Diameters
When you need a coated abrasive product with a lighter touch than a cross pad, our Standard Abrasives™ Aluminum Oxide Slotted Cloth Disc is a good option and provides full coverage. While cross pads are very effective for more aggressive application in coarse grits, the slotted disc works well for less aggressive follow-up steps. The slotted construction makes the disc flexible so that the operator can push it into a hole or tube and achieve full contact with internal diameters. For push-pull applications, we recommend our Standard Abrasives™ Overlap Disc.

Aluminum Oxide for Metals, Rubber, Plastic and Composites
Aluminum oxide discs are a good match for operators who desire an all-purpose versatility and economy. The mineral cuts fast while blending and deburring and is a good choice for applications on many substrates including ferrous metals, rubber, plastic and composites.

Running a Slotted Cloth Disc
For the convenience of tool-free disc changes, our slotted discs have either a threaded eyelet arbor hole that screws onto a mandrel and is secured by hand with an attachment bolt, or a built-in 8-32 threaded shaft. A shorter mandrel allows for a steadier application, while a mandrel with extended reach allows access deeper into pipe interiors. Compatible threaded Standard Abrasives™ Mandrels are available separately with thread sizes of 8-32, 3-48, and 14-20. An extended version is available with 8-32 threads.
