Flexible Diamond bands are indeed available in a variety of grit sizes, offering versatility for various polishing and grinding tasks. Here's a breakdown of the typical grit sizes and their applications:
Coarse Grits (60 to 120):
These grits are ideal for aggressive material removal and rough grinding.
Suitable for tasks that require significant stock removal or shaping.
Commonly used in initial stages of the grinding process when refining the shape of the workpiece.
Medium Grits (240 to 400):
Medium grits provide a balanced performance between stock removal and surface finish.
Effective for grinding tasks that require a moderate level of material removal while achieving smoother surfaces.
Used for transitioning from coarse grinding to finer polishing stages.
Fine Grits (600 to 1200):
Fine grits excel in providing a smoother surface finish.
Suitable for achieving a polished or semi-polished surface on various materials.
Commonly used for intermediate polishing stages.
Very Fine Grits (1500 to 1800):
Very fine grits are designed for fine polishing and achieving a high-gloss finish.
Ideal for the final stages of polishing to refine the workpiece's surface to a mirror-like shine.
Used when precision and a flawless finish are required.
The selection of the appropriate grit size depends on factors such as the material being worked on, the desired surface finish, and the stage of the grinding or polishing process. Starting with a coarser grit for material removal and progressively moving to finer grits for surface refinement is a common approach.
Flexible Diamond bands offer the advantage of adaptability, allowing professionals to tailor their abrasive tools to the specific needs of their projects, resulting in precise and high-quality finishes.
Metalworking: Flexible Diamond Bands are commonly used in metalworking applications for tasks such as grinding, deburring, and shaping metal components. They are effective on materials like steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and more.
Glass and Ceramics: These bands are suitable for glass and ceramics processing, including edge smoothing, beveling, and contouring. They provide precise results on delicate materials.
Stone and Concrete: In stone and concrete fabrication, Flexible Diamond Bands are utilized for shaping, polishing, and smoothing edges and surfaces on materials like granite, marble, and concrete.
Woodworking: Woodworkers can use these bands for shaping and polishing wooden surfaces, especially in intricate or contoured areas that are challenging to reach with other tools.
Composite Materials: Flexible Diamond Bands are effective for working with composite materials used in industries like aerospace and automotive manufacturing.
Size (Diameter): The bands come in various sizes to accommodate different tools and applications, with diameters including 10x20mm, 15x30mm, 22x20mm, 25x25mm, 30x30mm, 45x30mm, and 50x40mm.
Customized:customized to meet specific size requirements based on your particular needs and applications. Customized sizes offer the flexibility to adapt to various projects and surfaces. Whether you require smaller sheets for precision work or larger sheets for more extensive tasks, Our factory can often accommodate your requests for diamond sandpaper sheets in the size that best suits your requirements. When ordering customized sizes, be sure to provide the dimensions and quantity needed to ensure you receive the tailored product you require.

Q: What are the advantages of a flap wheel?
Advantages. The advantages of a flapwheel over a traditional disk are twofold: The separate flaps each attack the workpiece surface at a slightly different angle, and this varies slightly with tool angle. This avoids the common problem with flat sheets, where they produce repeated identical scratches.
Q: What is the difference between flap wheel and grinding wheel?
Flap discs are ideal for grinding, blending, finishing, and polishing surfaces, as well as removing rust, paint, and weld seams. Grinding discs are typically used for heavy-duty material removal, such as removing large welds, and shaping and smoothing metal edges.
Q: What is the best flap disc for grinding welds?
Flap discs are good for removing heavy weld seams and excess material while providing a long service life: For general use, the recommendation is a 60-grit ceramic flap disc. For greater speed and stock removal, a Type 29 conical is the best choice.
Q: What is a flap disc grinding wheel used for?
A flap disc is an abrasive product used to contour and shape metal. It consists of overlapping abrasive flaps glued to a backing plate and is regularly used for welding, machining, heavy-duty equipment work, and industrial maintenance. Common applications include: Cleaning flash from molds and castings.
Q: What is the best grit for flap discs?
Deburring and deflashing: 60 grit abrasive grain is ideal for deburring and deflashing work. Rust removal and blending: Abrasive grit in the more expansive range from 60 to 80 is optimal for finer work like rust removal and blending.
Q: Which grit flap disc would leave the smoothest finish on metal?
For finishing and sanding metal, a 120-grit flap disc could be your best option. Flat head flap discs best suit the purpose of finishing metal.
Q: What is the best flap wheel for stainless steel?
Designed for both mild and stainless steel, flap wheels made from zirconia (or zirconium) abrasive ribbon (blue / green in colour) are ideal for use on most metals including stainless steel. Other flap discs on the market made from using aluminium oxide abrasive ribbon are not suitable for use on stainless steel.
Q: Can you put a flap disc on a bench grinder?
Unmounted large flap wheels can conform to most shapes and are especially effective on pipes, tubes and other cylindrical items and are designed to be used on a bench grinder, pedestal grinder, or straight finishing tool with a 1 inch arbor.
