Coolcut XX Sanding Discs

June 01,2014

Walter Surface Technologies announced key updates to its COOLCUT XX sanding discs. COOLCUT XX is a Walter high-performance product that features an exclusive high-tech blend of abrasive grains as well as bond and cooling agents.

The new and improved COOLCUT XX 4-½", 5" and 7" general-purpose sanding disc products feature Cyclone self-sharpening grains technology, which reportedly remove more material in less time when compared to a regular sanding disc, six times more stock removal compared to regular sanding discs. Featuring a flexible cross-center design on all 4-½" (115mm) and 5" (125mm) for mounting ease, the COOLCUT XX sanding discs are suitable for heat-sensitive metals such as stainless steel, sanding and finishing of stainless and alloys, weld removal, grinding and more.

All 7" sanding discs are preformed to fit precisely on Walter Surface Technologies' Turbo backing pads without warping, allowing maximum contact with the workpiece. Additionally, ribbed backing provides added heat dissipation. Turbo backing pads should be used with COOLCUT XX discs for maximum benefit.

With the orange cooling agent, it also ensures cool cutting to prevent burning and distortion. The COOLCUT XX now delivers 90 percent more stock removal than previous versions, Ì¢‰â‰Û_provides two times faster cutting than regular sanding, and is designed to provide a consistent surface finish, disc after disc.

"We are pleased to announce the new COOLCUT XX sanding disc products are designed for demanding industry environments and today stand as the toughest sanding discs on the market. Today's industry users are looking for sanding discs that offer a high material removal rate to ensure high levels of operational efficiency and productivity compared to conventional sanding disc products," said Jonathan Douville, Product Manager, Walter Surface Technologies International.
