November 2014 Mercer Abrasives® announces its new high performance ceramic abrasives for the industrial market. Ceraflame™ flap discs and fibre discs are made with lubricated ceramic grains that are harder, longer-lasting, and cut cooler than zirconia. Ceramic is recommended for aggressive material removal of steel, cast iron, ceramic, stainless steel and other non-ferrous metals. Ceraflame™ ceramic is contaminant free.
Jim Wallick, President says, “We are very excited to be extending our flap disc and fiber disc line to include state-of-the-art ceramic grain that competes very favorably with the competition while costing less. Our distributor’s bottom line is always a priority for Mercer.”
Ceraflame™ is available in grits of 36 through 100. Mercer is manufacturing both 4-1/2” and 7” resin fibre discs and 4-1/2” type 29 flap discs in both fiberglass and trimmable backings.
