Rapid Prep XHD flap discs

Norton Rapid Prep XHD Coarse and Medium flap discs from Saint-Gobain Abrasives are designed are designed to remove weld lines, weld splatter, weld discoloration and blend surfaces in a single step. XHD Coarse is good for surface blending on steels, while XHD Medium works well on softer metals.  The discs combine a conformable fiber matrix and ceramic grain, resulting in improved cut control and surface blending over traditional coated flap and fiber discs, the company says. The blended fiber web dissipates workpiece debris, increasing product life and shape integrity. Norton’s Clean Bond resin system is designed to prevent smearing and moderate the disc’s rate of wear.

The Rapid Prep XHD discs come in 12 sizes offered in three non-woven types: quick-change discs from 2" to 4" with TR attachment; hook and loop discs in 7/8"-hole and no-hole options ranging from 4 ½" to 7" in diameter; and speed-change discs ranging from 4 ½" × 5/8"-11 Fastener to 7" × 7/8" Fastener.
