Designed for aluminum, other nonferrous metals and blending stainless steel, U.S.-made line of high-quality aluminum flap discs is longer lasting and helps prevent material loading.
KINGS MOUNTAIN, NORTH CAROLINA – September 2019 – Weldcote, a division of Zika Group, offers its line of ALU-PRIME premium flap discs for applications on aluminum, other nonferrous metals and blending stainless steel.
Offering high value-to-price performance, Weldcote’s ALU-PRIME flap disc design allows the discs to work longer and more effectively before needing to be changed out. A second-tier calcium stearate reduces material buildup between grains, helping to prevent the aluminum from loading. The flap discs also allow the end-user to keep the work material cooler.
Weldcote’s ALU-PRIME premium flap discs are manufactured of high-quality aluminum grain available with grits of 36 and 60 and feature a tough, heat-treated, polyester backing. The ALU-PRIME flap discs are offered in 4 1/2″, 5″ and 7″ sizes, in a compressed profile design that was developed to increase product life and reduce inventory costs for end-users.
“Our proprietary flap disc design, combined with our innovative manufacturing equipment, gives our ALU-PRIME flap disc longer life at a great value,” said Joe O’Mera, CEO of Weldcote. “It’s constructed with calcium stearate to reduce material buildup and delay material loading.“All News
