MONTREAL, Quebec — Walter Surface Technologies, a global provider of surface treatment technologies, announces the launch of FLEXSTEEL, a high-performing general purpose flap disc designed for use on steel in light industrial, metal fabrication and construction applications. FLEXSTEEL is the newest addition to Walter’s ENDURO-FLEX family of flap discs and furthers Walter’s commitment to helping customers work better.
FLEXSTEEL features a specially engineered zirconia alumina abrasive grain blend that self-sharpens with less pressure, allowing it to maintain a high removal rate on any power tool, including value models with less torque. FLEXSTEEL provides an economical solution for workers who need a quality, industrial grade flap disc to get the job done.
FLEXSTEEL flap discs are made of abrasive grains that self-sharpen under low pressure and, like the ENDURO-FLE series, they feature Walter’s unique Eco-Trim backing that extends disc life.
The discs offer a high removal rate and good life on steel. They offer an economical choice for blending sharp corners, heavy deburring or blending in fillet welds. In addition, they can withstand lateral pressure to remove material from corners and edges — all of which would normally cause premature wear on the standard abrasive cloth typically found on flap discs in this category.
