Why You Should Use Ceramic Flap Discs

Ceramic flap discs are abrasive grinding discs made of overlapping flaps of ceramic abrasive material that bond to a fibre backing. Ceramic flap discs have become a popular flap disc choice due to their high-performance capabilities and range of benefits. They can be used for several applications, for example, grinding, polishing, tool sharpening & deburring and edge preparation. But why should you consider ceramic flap discs and why are they so popular?

Extremely Durable 

One reason ceramic flap discs are extremely useful is because of how durable they are. Ceramic flap discs boast a remarkable lifespan. The resistance ceramic flap discs have general wear and tear, which means they can save you a significant amount of money over time as fewer discs will be needed to complete the same amount of work. 


Ceramic flap discs are extremely versatile and can excel in a wide range of applications including grinding, blending and polishing. They can also be used on a range of materials such as metals, hard materials and composites. Given their versatility, ceramic flap discs are a valuable asset to almost all workshops and businesses.

Low Heat Generation

Ceramic flap discs offer the lowest heat generation compared to other flap disc alternatives. Low heat generation is an important factor to consider for flap discs and makes them well-suited for delicate materials where heat control is important. Excessive heat can increase the risk of discolouration, warping and heat-induced damage to the workpiece. 

Easy to Use 

Ceramic flap discs are incredibly easy to use, manoeuvre and control. This makes ceramic flap discs suitable for both trained experts and people with very little experience. Using a ceramic flap disc reduces the risk of damaging or gouging the workpiece. 

Superior Cutting Performance 

Not only are ceramic flap discs extremely durable, they consist of self-sharpening ceramic grains which ensure that consistent and high-quality performance is achieved throughout the full life of the disc. Not only does this reduce the frequency of disc changes, but it also means you will achieve smoother finishes, reduced rework and enhanced productivity.
