Ideal for edge grinding as well as weld-seam dressing, the heavy duty construction of the CC-GRIND SOLID even makes them suitable for very rough grinding
applications but they are not recommended for circumferential grinding such as on root-pass welds in pipeline construction.
They are deemed as economical and efficient products for surface polishing, chamfering, deburring, descaling, rough grinding
, lapping, and smoothing to meet customers' requirements.
I remember hearing famed telescope guru John Dobson proclaim, "Mirror making is caveman work--eat well, sleep well, and work like hell!" And there's little doubt that the most caveman-like part of the process is rough grinding

volume, finish grinding volume, down feed volume for finish grinding, target point, rise up point, intermittent spark-out, and spark-out.
Cotton fibers will hang up on projections caused by rough grinding
. The ground surface finish should not exceed 16 micro-inches for utility slitting.
Recommended applications for the Z-Stainless flap discs include rough grinding
and finishing, intermediate grinding and finishing of welds, deburring, deflashing, rust removal, snagging, surface finishing, cleaning, blending and stock removal.
After rough grinding
, the castings move across an industrial roadway into a new building converted in the summer of 1999 for finishing operations (including a dippainting operation) and short-term storage before shipping.
