Norton Abrasives (Worcester, MA) has introduced the Norton RapidPrep™ line of non-woven discs, belts, and wheels for the metal fabricating industry. RapidPrep features a new non-woven substrate with an improved resin bond system designed to eliminate smearing and loading, two common problems in most surface conditioning applications, as well as providing improved edge wear. The Norton RapidPrep line is available with an innovative, high-performance, engineered Norton Vortex grain technology and premium aluminum oxide grain. Norton Vortex RapidPrep products contain an engineered aggregate grain which is a composite of smaller grains combined into a larger grain particle to provide excellent cutting and life, along with a superb finish, says the company.
