Mixed Ceramic Abrasive

The 3M™ Flap Wheel 747D is a high-performance abrasive wheel that features a ceramic abrasive mix on each flap. This mix was created using a proprietary process that enhances the toughness and hardness of the grain. The ceramic abrasive mix is a blend of aluminum oxide and 3M ceramic grain, which creates a harder and longer-lasting abrasive. Ceramic abrasives are engineered to cut fast and handle intense heat and stress applications, making them perfect for light to moderate stock removal.

The ceramic/aluminum oxide blend surpasses aluminum oxide abrasives in cut-rate and durability, making it an excellent choice for moderate stock removal and surface preparation.

High Quality Construction

The abrasive mix is attached to a flexible cotton backing using a resin bond. This resin bonding material is specially designed to resist thermal and chemical deterioration that can occur during high-speed sanding. The bond is very hard, allowing for faster cuts and a higher cut rate. The wheel also includes a grinding aid for cooler running on stainless steel.

Each flap uses an X-weight cotton backing, which provides a tough but flexible surface that bends to fit any workpiece. As the wheel is used, the self-cutting flaps wear away to expose sharp, new abrasive material, ensuring that surfaces are sanded consistently throughout the life of the wheel.

Flap Wheel Advantages

Coated abrasive flap wheels are the ideal choice for light grinding, blending, graining, and scale removal on a variety of metals. The abrasive flaps offer a long-lasting supply of fresh abrasives and a load-resistant design. 3M™ flap wheels are available in both flange-mounted and spindle-mounted constructions with general-purpose aluminum oxide or high-performing 3M ceramic aluminum oxide blend abrasive grain.
