Our Standard Abrasives™ Aluminum Oxide Square Pad enables aggressive access to tight angles such as channels, fillets and corners. Used for grinding and deburring, the pad has folded layers of abrasive cloth provide fresh mineral as the corners wear away and absorb vibration to reduce chatter for smooth results.
Tips for Optimal UseA Standard Abrasives™ Aluminum Oxide Square Pad is constructed by folding strips of coated abrasive material over a metal eyelet to form a square abrasive pad. As the pad rotates, the corners provide fast biting action, wearing down to expose fresh mineral. Square pads run smoothly and offer great control and access for corner weld grinding and cleaning. They are a bit more aggressive than cross pads given their square design, so they're a good choice for tougher grinding and blending applications. Small size pads are ideally suited for tubes and internal diameters. These pads may be used with portable die grinders to facilitate easier and closer access to the workpiece, and the metal eyelet attaches to a mandrel —long or short — enabling the operator to tighten or extend the abrasive's proximity to the part.
Achieve a Sharp Cut and Soft Scratch PatternAluminum oxide mineral delivers a soft scratch pattern that is often desirable for finishing and polishing. Aluminum oxide is a popular mineral choice among industrial professionals because of its fast cut and long life. It's suitable for use on many metals, including mild and carbon steel. Aluminum oxide mineral is adhered to the backing in a closed coat construction — meaning the mineral covers 100% of the backing. The greater grain density of this coated abrasive equates to finer finishes.
