3M™ Fibre Disc 983C offers an exceptionally fast cut and extreme durability for high-pressure carbon and mild steel applications by combining 3M™ceramic abrasive grain with a stiff fiber backing. Designed for both long life and superior performance in aggressive, heavy-duty applications, ceramic fiber discs minimize edge wear, enhance productivity, and reduce material consumption.
Choose our 3M™ fiber disc 983C for high-pressure weld leveling and beveling. The disc is resin-bonded to withstand high heat and pressure in demanding applications.Our 3M™ ceramic grain exceeds conventional abrasives in durability, disc life, and cut-rate, offering greater throughput in less time. Additionally, less pressure is required to achieve maximum performance, in turn reducing operator fatigue and extending tool life. 3M™ Ceramic Abrasive Grain is a 3M proprietary ceramic mineral formed using a process to enhance toughness and hardness of the grain. It is chemically engineered with a unique "stay sharp" crystalline structure, which continually self-sharpens cutting edges on the surface of the disc, ensuring extended high performance in high pressure production applications. These discs enable operators to do more work in less time, leading to significant gains in productivity.Fiber discs are heavy-duty discs ideal for weld removal, grinding, and blending large and small areas of metal surfaces. They feature a tough, stiff backing made from resin bonded fibers that resist wear and can handle tough grinding applications. Fiber discs with a 7/8" center hole are mounted onto a right angle grinder. They are secured to the disc pad hub and face plate with a compatible disc retainer nut (all sold separately).For optimal performance, we recommend that the disc should be used with a face plate of the appropriate density for the application—a lighter density face plate for lighter weight grinding applications, and a harder density face plate for more heavyweight grinding applications. Using the correct face plate for the application ensures that the abrasive mineral will re-sharpen, maximizing the life of the abrasive.
