60 Grit Flap Discs

Flap discs are effectively just flattened versions of the common flapwheel attachments widely found in all manner of wood, masonry or metal finishing applications. Like flapwheels, flap discs are replaceable accessories made from sheets of strong coated abrasive materials.

Flap discs are primarily designed for use with various types of grinding, polishing and buffing power tools - be they corded or cordless tools, such as a handheld right-angle grinder, or permanently installed as heavier items of workshop machinery.

60 grit flap disc uses

60 grit flap discs are regarded as a medium or medium-coarse grade of metal finishing material, ideal for rust removal, bodywork preparation, and general metalworking applications ranging from heavy stock removal to finishing and surface blending.

They're best used in a smooth, consistent push-pull action for optimal results and consistency. As the flap disc spins and removes material from the surface you're working on, the uppermost abrasive layers at the edge of the disc are worn down to reveal new, fresh abrasive faces underneath.

Popular brands available include 3M, RS Pro and Norton with our customers looking to purchase 60 grit flap discs, either in bulk deals or as individually priced units.

What is the difference between the different grit numbers?

Selecting the right type and grade of flap disc for the application, the material surface, and the amount of swarf or roughness you need to remove is key. The grit numbers relate to the size of the abrasive particles, the higher the number the smaller the particles.

Grit numbers range from a very coarse 24, up to a fine 120 which is used for deburring or finishing.

Flap disc materials and coatings

Typical materials used in the design of flap discs include various sorts of abrasive-coated cloth, including:

  • Zirconia Aluminium
  • Zirconium Dioxide
  • Ceramic
  • Nylon

In particular, zirconia aluminium and zirconium dioxide flap discs offer greatly improved longevity (up to 10x) than earlier standards, which were usually built around fibre-based discs.
