  1. What is the 3M™ Flap Wheel 747D made of?

    The 3M™ Flap Wheel 747D is made with durable aluminum oxide abrasive on a Y-weight polyester cloth backing, allowing for consistent finish and longer life.

  2. Can I use this flap wheel on stainless steel surfaces?

    Yes, our 3M™ Flap Wheel 747D can be used effectively on stainless steel surfaces, as well as other metals such as carbon steel and aerospace alloys.

  3. How long does each wheel typically last?

    The lifespan of each flap wheel will vary depending on factors like application-specific variables (pressure used, material being worked), but they generally have longer life than conventional abrasive products.

  4. Is it cost-effective to purchase by bulk/case or in smaller quantities?

    For customers who expect to frequently use abrasives over time it's more cost-effective to purchase in cases since individual prices might be higher. However, if only a specific one-time project uses abrasives then purchasing small quantities may make sense.

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 designed to cut fast and handle intense heat and stress applications, making them perfect for light to moderate stock removal.

The ceramic/aluminum oxide blend in this flap wheel 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. This 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.
