Grind and finish in one step with exclusive soft material application flap discs

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 10, 2019-- Lawson Products, Inc.(NASDAQ:LAWS)a distributor of products and services to the MRO marketplace, today announced the new Blue-Kote™Soft Material Application Flap Disc, which grinds aluminum and all non-ferrous metals at high speed with minimal clogging or loading, while keeping the work surface temperature low for quality finishing.

The Type 27 abrasive disc is also used with composite materials such as carbon fiber and plastics. The 4.5-inch diameter disc is available in 40 and 60 grit.

Produced exclusively for Lawson Products, the new Blue-KoteSoft Material Application Flap Disc is manufactured from tough aluminum oxide grain layered in a specially engineered net structure. The unique design provides high-performance cut rate and aggressive stock removal with surface blending action for excellent finish consistency. The soft, long-lasting disc that simultaneously grinds and finishes saves process time, eliminates the need for product changeover, and reduces total cost.

Because aluminum has a much lower melting temperature than other metals, keeping aluminum cool while grinding and finishing is a big challenge for welders and fabricators. The Blue-Kote disc cloth’s net structure resists clogging on soft materials, and its sanded surface stays cooler and avoids burning the work surface.
