Moderately Aggressive for Light to Medium-Duty Applications
Our Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend GP Mounted Flap Brush is a great multi-purpose product for industrial maintenance applications. Among Buff and Blend materials, GP material is moderately aggressive. Use it to remove light oxidation, blend minor surface imperfections, clean surfaces prior to coatings, remove small burrs, and perform basic equipment cleanup. A flexible open web conforms to workpiece contours, curves and ridges. Its non-woven construction makes the flaps spongy and responsive. When the job requires a tougher product for higher-pressure applications, we recommend using a Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend HS Flap Brush.

Using Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend discs, wheels and brushes, operators can tackle ridges and contours with less concern about gouging or marring the substrate, thus reducing waste and the need for rework.

Aluminum Oxide Offers Fast Cut
This flap brush is made with aluminum oxide mineral, which cuts sharp but is still friable – fragmenting under heat and pressure to reveal sharp cutting edges. The tan, MED brush delivers a somewhat coarse scratch pattern, suitable for satin or matte finishes, while the gray VFN brush provides a finer finish.

Consistent Finishes, Operator Comfort
Flap brushes produce a consistent finish which does not reflect lines commonly attributed to ganged arbor hole discs. Density, pressure and angle determine the ability of the flap brush to remove burrs, oxidation and handling marks. The abrasive material provides ventilation which helps dissipate heat and, therefore, runs cooler. This provides consistent finishes without smearing or otherwise discoloring the work piece. Minimal vibration can reduce chattermarks on the workpiece and can lead to less operator and machine fatigue.

The permanently affixed 1/4˝ shank enables convenient use on small straight pneumatic and electric grinders, and provides smooth running and ease of control for off-hand operations.

Load-Resistant Construction Boosts Life and Performance
Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend products are load-resistant to keep you cutting with fresh mineral. The gaps in the open web allow unwanted swarf to escape. Consequently, less debris clogs the abrasive, so the mineral can stay fresh, keep cutting sharp and deliver a consistent cut over the life of the product. As the fibers break down and fresh mineral is exposed, it reduces the likelihood of dull or blunt mineral smearing the surface, contributing to cleaner surfaces and less re-work. Furthermore, manual fatigue that may result from applying heavy pressure to a dull abrasive is reduced.

The Many Benefits of Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend Products
Standard Abrasives™ Buff and Blend products invigorate deburring, cleaning, blending and finishing applications by helping operators reduce finishing steps, minimize costs and achieve greater throughput. Each Buff and Blend product and grade offers unique benefits, so operators can choose from a versatile range of options to ensure superior performance on specific applications.
