Norton Abrasives (of Saint-Gobain Abrasives) is upgrading its “Better” tier of metal fabricating abrasives products for portable grinding applications. Products in the tier will now be known as Norton BlueFire and feature a zirconia alumina grain. The zirconia alumina grain is said to provide a stronger and sharper shape for an improved cut rate and micro-fracturing.
 

The updated products currently include “Better”-tier fiber discs, flap discs, coated abrasive belts, and portable wheels, cones and plugs. The company will also upgrade its Charger depressed center and cut-off wheels, NorZon paper discs, non-woven wheels and quick-change discs for portable grinding applications.
