FLAP DISCS VERSUS GRINDING DISCS The question is often asked, "should I use a grinding disc or flap disc?" There are a number of aspects that need to be considered when making your decision. The right solution provides efficient, effective performance and allows you to spend more time welding and less time cleaning and making repairs. Flap discs offer reliable and aggressive grinding action while also allowing for more delicate blending and finishing work which is important when the material needs to be painted, primed, or powder-coated. The flaps are designed and positioned to wear away as the grains deplete, exposing new, fresh, and sharp grain underneath. This layered flap construction is what contributes to flap discs being more forgiving and comfortable to use. Taipan's increased innovation and technology in the flap disc category is resulting in longer life, faster performance and better finishing products - for example, take a look at the Taipan exclusive PLATINUM TWIN-FLAP DISCS. Grinding discs are considered the industry-standard product for grinding down welds, notching and bevelling. A powder-like bond and abrasive are mixed, pressed in a mold and then baked to create a rigid wheel - changing this mixture results in a harder bond wheel for longer life or a softer bond for better grinding action. However, grinding discs do not offer the finishing capabilities of a flap disc and being a hard disc they create more noise and vibration. When the surface finish is not critical a grinding disc is often the most cost effective and best solution. Utilizing specialized abrasive grains such as ceramic substantially increases the performance and lifetime of the disc - check out the PLATINUM RAZOR-GRIND PLUS DISCS, an example of Taipan's innovation for grinding. Understanding the differences and advantages of each product category is what will help you make the ultimate decision based on your specific requirements.
