Abrasive Wheels From Rex-Cut Feature Thin Profile To Deburr And Clean


Fall River, MA --(Marketwire) - Rex-Cut Products, Inc. has introduced a full line of small, thin-profile Type 1 cotton fiber abrasive wheels for deburring slots, gears, stampings and castings, and cleaning pipe threads. They are ideal for production, repair, and maintenance applications.

Rex-Cut® Type 1 Abrasive Wheels feature multiple layers of cotton fiber that are impregnated with aluminum oxide or silicon carbide abrasives and laminated, pressed, and bonded into dense wheels. Continuously exposing fresh abrasives as they work, these long-life deburring wheels and finishing wheels come in 1" to 4" dia. sizes from 1/32" to 1/2" thick for reaching into slots and crevices that are too narrow for conventional unitized wheels.

Suitable for aluminum, steel, stainless steel, titanium Inconel®, and other exotics, Rex-Cut® Type 1 Abrasive Wheels are capable of lasting up to 10 times longer than unitized wheels, claims the firm. Available in coarse, medium, fine, and very-fine grits with soft or hard bonds, applications include aircraft production, metal fabrication, and pipe thread maintenance.

Rex-Cut® Type 1 Abrasive Wheels are priced according to size, abrasive grain, bond, and quantity. Samples and pricing are available upon request.
