Standard Abrasives™ Quick Change Disc Pads, also called Holder Pads, allow you to rapidly change Standard Abrasives™ quick change discs (sold separately) during multi-step projects. A wide range of sizes and densities are available, ensuring that you can find the pad(s) that best suits your specific grinding and finishing application.
Three Attachment Types: TS, TR, TP
Standard Abrasives™ Quick Change Disc Pads come with one of three quick change attachment styles. Attachment styles include TS, TR and TP. TS is a standard metal-to-metal attachment style, TR is a 3M™ Roloc™ style nylon threaded male hub, and TP is a snap-on/snap-off nylon fastening hub. Each of the attachment styles allows easy swap out of discs with a speedy quarter turn.

Choosing a Mandrel
Our Standard Abrasives™ Quick Change Disc Pads are available with or without mandrels. Some TS and TR holder pads come with an attached 1/4-inch diameter TA4 mandrel. Others come with an attached 6 mm diameter TA6 mandrel. TP disc holders come with the TA4 mandrel attachment only. Disc pads are also available without mandrels, so users can select a mandrel of their choice for their application. Holders without an attached mandrel feature a 1/4-20 female thread interface for mandrel attachment. Once the mandrel is attached, users typically fasten the disc pad/mandrel assembly to a rotary tool or die grinder.
