Flap wheels manufactured by SK Grit Industries are designed with abrasive flaps on a solid metal or wooden center which mounts directly into machine shafts. The flexibility of the abrasive flap wheel allows inexperienced operators to obtain optimal grinding results. Flap wheels are ideal for long term use as new grains are exposed when the flap wheel wears down over repeated use and time.

Application & Use: There are several applications that use abrasive flap wheels. Some of the common uses are de-burring (i.e. aluminum or zinc die castings), stress relief (jet engine turbine blades) and as a fine grinding tool to reach non-specific dimension tolerances. Although, these are certainly common uses, probably the most common use is for preparing the work-piece for further finishing steps (i.e. buffing, plating, anodizing, etc.)
