U.S.-made line of zirconia flap discs feature an industry-first, poly-cotton backing with high-quality zirconia grain for fast and effective removal of metal.
KINGS MOUNTAIN, NORTH CAROLINA – June 2019 – Weldcote, a division of Zika Group, introduces its line of Z-PRIME and Z-SOLID zirconia flap discs.
Designed for applications on carbon-based steels and stainless steel, Weldcote’s Z-PRIME premium flap discs are manufactured of high-quality zirconia grain that provides fast metal removal. The zirconia technology incorporates an active grinding agent that provides cool cutting with light pressure.
Offering a high value-to-price performance, Weldcote’s Z-SOLID flap discs feature long-lasting, high-density, chemically treated, zirconia aluminum oxide grains that allow for excellent metal removal rates.
The Z-PRIME and Z-SOLID flap discs both feature an industry-first, poly-cotton backing that is designed to provide increased grain retention and still provide flexibility and the ability to withstand the high pressure generated from a right-angle grinder. The Z-PRIME flap discs are available in 4″, 4 1/2″, 5″, 6″ and 7″ sizes, and the Z-SOLID flap discs are available in 4 1/2″, 5″, 6″ and 7″ sizes.
“Our proprietary flap disc design, combined with our innovative manufacturing equipment, gives our flap disc users the fastest metal removal capabilities of any zirconia-based grain flap disc on the market,” said Joe O’Mera, CEO of Weldcote. “Zirconia is the number one selling material grain in the flap disc marketplace, and the fact that our flap discs are manufactured in the U.S. is a huge competitive advantage.”
