What Affects the Performance of Flap Wheels?

Flap Wheel


Flap Wheels are typically used in metal fabrication and welding applications especially when you need a conformable product that can grind and polish intricate shapes and contours.

Flap wheels are made of multiple abrasive sheets attached to a core for fabricating, deburring, cleaning, polishing, and finishing jobs in working applications.


The long life flap wheel can be easily and conveniently operated and has the characteristic of good elasticity, stable physicochemical properties, high security, and safe not to burn the workpieces. A flexible flap wheel can absolutely match the workpieces and it provides a smooth abrasion on the workpiece's surface during its lifetime.

What Affects the Performance of the Flap Wheel?


Long life flap wheel is a kind of industrial consumable product, that can be applied to all varieties of polishing like the large surfaces of stainless steel, wood, furniture, stones, etc. Various industries often use this product including automobiles, heavy machine repairs, stainless steel, aluminum alloys, and the like.

There are advantages and disadvantages of the performance of the flap wheel, then what are the factors that affect the performance of the flap wheel?


●  Abrasives


Abrasives are responsible for cutting work and are important raw materials for manufacturing louvers. Abrasives should have the characteristics of sharpness, high hardness, and good toughness.


●  Hardness


The hardness of the louver disc refers to the difficulty of the abrasive grains on the surface of the louver disc falling off under the action of grinding force. The hardness of the louver disc is low, and the abrasive grains of the performance louver disc easy to fall off, while the hardness of the louver disc is high, and the abrasive grains of the performance louver disc are difficult to fall off.


●  Particle size


Particle size is divided into two categories: abrasive grain and micro powder. Grain size refers to the size of the abrasive particles.


●  Bonding agent


The substance used to bond abrasives in the emery cloth wheel is called the bonding agent. The strength, impact resistance, heat resistance, and corrosion resistance of the grinding wheel depend on the performance of the bond.
