October 27, 2020 - Saint-Gobain Abrasives, Worcester, Massachusetts, announced the introduction of its new Norton Vortex® Rapid Prep Non-Woven File Belts which offer users an easier way to obtain superior finishes when working with tight, intricate and complex parts. A unique high-performance ceramic blend of grain cuts like a coarser grit size and delivers faster cuts, while producing finishes similar to a finer grit abrasive on a wide range of metals. The proprietary Norton Clean Bond® resin system ensures a smear-free, crisp-clean finish, improving productivity and reducing cost.

“Users will enjoy improved ergonomics and greater productivity, due to the exceptionally flexible, heavy-duty resin system, in applications such as cleaning, blending, weld prep and finishing,” said Mario Davila, Product Manager, Norton | Saint-Gobain Abrasives. “Extremely hard working, our new Norton Vortex File Belts offer superior conformability, as well as easy mounting on the tool.”

For versatility, Norton Vortex Rapid Prep Non-Woven File Belts can safely be used in combination with coolants or in dry applications. The new File Belts are available in several sizes including widths of 1/4 in., 1/2 in. and 3/4 in. with lengths ranging from 12 in. to 24 in. depending on the belt width.

To meet application requirements, BEST tier options are offered in coarse, medium, fine and very fine grits. Applications examples include:

• Restaurant/ food service: weld discoloration cleaning and surface blending on all metals
