Flap wheels are manufactured by attaching many pieces of abrasive cloth fixed around a central hub and are designed for light deburring, cleaning, surface preparation and finishing. They can be used on wood, metal, plastic, rubber, marble, stone and leather. Flap wheels can be either abrasive or interleaved (abrasive material with non woven material).
We supply flap wheels in Aluminium Oxide, Silicon Carbide and Zirconia in grit sizes from 40g (coarse) to 320g (fine).
Spindle mounted flap wheels are available in sizes from 10mm to 80mm diam and are suitable for small or hard to reach surfaces such as the internal surfaces of pipes, cylinders and moulds. Spindles are either 3mm or 6mm and can be supplied in various lengths.
Large flap wheels have a centre arbour and are mounted on a straight shaft or tapered spindle. They can be used on flat, concave or convex surfaces as well as larger internal diameters. Sizes are available from 100mm to 400mm diam.
