New Norton Product Guide simplifies right angle grinding abrasives selection

January 19, 2022 - Norton | Saint-Gobain Abrasives, Worcester, Massachusetts, introduced a new comprehensive 24-Page Product Guide for Right Angle Grinding. The new guide simplifies proper abrasives selection for varying process steps and materials, including the most complex and challenging right angle grinding applications.

Explained in the guide, Norton abrasives are classified in BEST, BETTER, and GOOD performance/ price tiers to help users choose the right product for a specific application. The product guide is color-coded for the eight key application processes found in metal fabrication including cutting, heavy-duty grinding, stock removal, blending/ refining, deburring, surface preparation/cleaning, finishing, and polishing. A “BEST product” solution is referenced for each application. In addition, an application matrix provides a product selection guide divided by material and cost requirement, whether by performance or economy criteria.

The guide also has a grit application table which shows the grit overlap for each product type and every stage of the application process. Process-to-product recommendations are provided based on material including mild steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Fourteen pages of the product guide detail technical tips for application steps and recommended products. Application steps for various materials include weld preparation and removal in carbon steel, cut-off to commercial finish in stainless steel, weld removal to a bright finish in stainless steel, aluminum and non-ferrous metal preparation for paint/ coatings, paint coating and corrosion removal, scale removal/ cleaning, sharp edge removal after laser cutting in carbon steel, and final finish polishing in carbon steel and stainless steel.
