With developments in abrasive coating, the sheet material could withstand greater forces and speeds. This allowed the production of flap wheels for use with speed angle grinders. For better use of the flap wheel, usually, we will do much work in cleaning and maintaining after using a flap wheel. How to clean a flap disc after first use

How should I handle and store the flap disc?

  • All flap discs are fragile. They should be handled with care. As the background is a hard disk, this will make flap disc used with an extra life.
  • Flap discs should be stored on a flat, rigid surface, avoiding damp and frost or wide variation in temperature. The foam spacer inside will keep dry and flexible in this way, and more suited for producing a smooth finish to curved surfaces.
  • Use the oldest discs (on “first-in, first-out” basis). Old flap disc has a shorter life than new, it is a good way to take advantage of using them this way.
