Mounted Flap Wheels

 

Flap Wheels are commonly used for blending and finishing applications. These shank mounted products are ideal for working in hard to reach areas, where a larger disc or wheel will not fit.

Since they are primarily a finishing tool, we manufacture our abrasive flap wheels with a very flexible, yet durable x-weight cotton backing. The added flexibility improves their finishing performance.

Alpha Industrial flap wheels are made with a standard flush core which allows easy access inside corners.

Like most Alpha Industrial products, flap wheels are available in a variety of versions which allow customers to progress from Grinding and Blending (abrasives) to Cleaning and Finishing (Interleaf, Nonwoven, and Ultra Finishing) and ultimately Polishing (Felt products). For a direct link to our Cleaning and Finishing or Polishing Flap Wheel pages click on the image or text at the bottom of this page, otherwise they can be found via Specialty Abrasives as found on the side bar.

 
 

Abrasive Flap Wheels on 1/4" shank

 

Alpha Industrial flap wheels are manufactured with Premium Aluminum Oxide grain on an X-weight cotton backing. This gives our wheels superior durability and greater flexibility.

Quick Tip: If your application required more aggressive stock removal see our Flap Bands page, which can be accessed via the coated abrasives page. Their tightly layered flaps remove material faster which makes for more effective use of your time.
