Walter Surface Technologies wants its customers to get the finish they require in fewer steps, saving both time and money in the process. That is now possible with the newest addition to the company’s industry-leading Enduro-Flex branded portfolio of finishing flap discs — the Enduro-Flex 2-in-1 TURBO.
A one-step solution
The Enduro-Flex 2-in-1 TURBO is a finishing flap disc designed for steel, stainless steel and aluminum fabricators. It contains best-in-class features that eliminate the need for operators to switch between multiple abrasives to achieve the desired finish. This one tool achieves that desired finish because it incorporates two innovative technologies, including:
- Walter’s proprietary Cyclone technology, which contains a high-tech blend of self-sharpening grains and cooling agents, and provides ultra-high removal and blending rates without causing surface discoloration; and
- Blendex technology, which allows for smoother surface conditioning.
Meeting industry needs
“There is a growing demand for one-step solutions in the prep-to-paint steel market, and Walter is the first company to incorporate both speed and surface conditioning technology into a single flap disc,” explains Jonathan Douville, product manager for Walter Surface Technologies.
The new Enduro-Flex 2-in-1 TURBO allows users to remove material faster using a highly durable, safe and efficient product, and at the same time provides long-term cost savings — a key feature in today’s highly competitive metalworking industry. Compared to a multiple-step application process for weld removal and paint-to-prep finishing, the Enduro-Flex 2-in-1 TURBO helps metal fabricators cut operational costs, reduces abrasives change over and boosts removal rate times, resulting in substantial long-term cost savings.
The Enduro-Flex 2-in-1 TURBO is available in 4-½- and five-inch flap discs. This newest addition is yet another innovative solution for the metalworking industry available from Walter Surface Technologies. The company has been a leading provider of surface treatment technologies for more than 60 years, offering its customers across the globe a wide variety of abrasives, power tools and tooling, industrial parts washing systems, cleaners, degreasers and lubricants.
