Diamond Flap Wheels

KGS Diamond Flap Wheels are used for shaping, beveling and grinding edges on natural stone, marble, granite, concrete and terrazzo, tiles, alumina ceramic, silicon carbide and engineered stone.
They can be used wet or dry, have a fast cutting speed and high stock removal rate.
A flap disk is easier to use and more forgiving than heavier cup wheels, with no vibration.

All our flap wheel are made in the EU.

KGS DIAMOND is the world's leading manufacturer of flexible diamond abrasives and electrolytically metallised fabrics. Founded in Switzerland in 1952, KGS has sales and distribution offices in Europe, North America, China and Australia as well as four manufacturing sites located in Switzerland, The Netherlands, Hungary and Portugal.

When used on alumina ceramic tiles, these flap wheels will not blacken the tile like grinding wheels.

Note:
A variable speed grinder is recommended as low speed is as efficiently as high speed, and the lower speeds keep the wheels cool. Alternatively, swapping flap wheels regularly also keeps them cool. Overheated wheels will loose flaps, and in severe cases, can lose many flaps at once.

Tips:
 - #60 grit is the best for stock removal.
 - #200 and #400 grit is best for polishing (even on alumina ceramic). Or follow up with MM2A polishing pads.

 - The Gold series #60 are best for removing epoxy glue off alumina ceramic tiles.
 - Work flat
 - Use as little pressure as possible - above #200 grit use machine weight only
 - Use quick movements to prevent overheating the resin bond

Our flap wheels are also ideal for sharpening tungsten carbide teeth on machinery such as stump grinders, excavators, trenchers, as well as boring, mining and drilling machines.
Sharpen with the Gold Line #60 grit, and finish off with the #120 grit.

Note - If you are grinding dry, always be aware of the danger of breathing in the dust.
Ensure a dust extraction system is used with a suitable filter fitted. Use a half face respirator or a PAPR (Powered air purifying respirator). Even if you are grinding wet, the slurry created can dry out and create a hazard for other users - dispose of slurry as per your local regulations.
