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. A continuous series of individual flaps work to provide a uniform finish as the flaps wear away to expose fresh abrasive. Three mounting options are available to ensure our flap wheels can fit a variety of different machines.
Each grit flap comes in contact with the workpiece at a slightly different angle, which prevents scratches. Because abrasive flap wheels conform to the shape of the surface material, they are commonly used to finish complex shapes and tight contours on a workpiece. Flap wheels attach to grinders, drills, impact wrenches, or handheld rotary tools.
