Flexible Diamond Velcro Backing Sanding Disc,Metal Bond Resists Wear and Anchors Diamond metal bond securely anchors micron-graded diamonds to a flexible cloth backing in an open dot pattern. Metal bonds are known to be tough and durable binding agents when it comes to adhering mineral to a backing. How to Identify the Three Open-Dot Patterns Flexible Diamond Velcro Cloth Disc comes in three patterns: D1, D2 and D3. Here's how to distinguish between the three. Pattern D3 is a small-dot pattern, designed for finer finishes, grade for grade D2 is a medium-dot pattern designed for aggressive cutting action. It has improved coolant flow, given the spacing of the dots Pattern D1 is the largest dot pattern and it's ideal for applications where loading is a problem. The gaps in the mineral design allow swarf and debris to escape Overall, the open dot pattern whether tight or condensed delivers aggressive cutting action while reducing loading. Given its dual strength and flexibility, the Flexible Diamond Velcro Backing Cloth Disc is a great abrasive for your hard to grind materials.Importantly, this diamond abrasive with a Velcro (hook and loop) backing for easier attachment. The hook and loop backing allows swift and easy change-out of discs, especially when the task requires multiple discs in a sequence. Recommended Applications Glass grinding and edge seaming Fast leveling on stone inlay, glass, ceramic Polishing stone, gems, composites, concrete and metal Removing deep scratches in stone, glass or composites left by previous steps Hard to grind materials
1. Diamond Abrasives: This sanding disc is equipped with micron-graded diamond abrasives, which are known for their exceptional hardness and durability. These synthetic diamonds are precisely bonded to the disc's surface, ensuring efficient material removal and polishing.
2. Velcro (Hook and Loop) Backing: The disc has a Velcro backing, often referred to as a hook and loop backing. This makes it easy to attach and detach the disc from compatible sanding tools. It allows for quick disc changes, which is particularly useful when multiple discs are needed for a task.
3. Flexibility: The disc is designed to be flexible, allowing it to conform to the contours of the workpiece. This flexibility is especially valuable when sanding or polishing curved or irregular surfaces.
4. Applications: The Flexible Diamond Velcro Backing Sanding Disc is versatile and finds applications in various industries, including:
Metalworking: It can be used for deburring, shaping, and polishing metal surfaces.
Glass and Ceramics: Ideal for smoothing and shaping glass edges and polishing ceramics and porcelain.
Stone and Concrete: Effective for grinding and polishing natural and engineered stone, as well as concrete surfaces.
Jewelry Making: Jewelry makers use this disc for shaping and polishing gemstones and precious metals.
Woodworking: While less common in woodworking, it can be used for specific tasks like sharpening and honing certain tools.
5. Grit Sizes: Like traditional sandpaper, this sanding disc comes in various grit sizes, ranging from coarse for material removal to fine for finishing and polishing.
6. Wet and Dry Use: It can be used either wet or dry, depending on the application. Wet sanding is often preferred when working on materials that generate heat to prevent overheating.

Frequenstly Answer Qeustion
Q: How do hook and loop sanding discs work?
Hook-and-loop sandpaper features a unique backing made of a material similar to Velcro, with hooks and loops that allow the sandpaper to easily attach to a machine such as a random orbital sander or disc sander. This makes it incredibly easy to switch out sandpaper as needed.
Q: What is a hook and loop disc?
What is a Hook and Loop Sanding Disc? Also known as hook and loop sandpaper, this is a type of sanding disc made for easy attachment and removal to your power tools like an orbital sander, for example.
Q: What is a hook it disc?
Hookit™ attachment system enables easy disc change-out, maximizing abrasive disc life. Tapered edges from 15 degrees to 45 degrees make it easy to sand on flat or contoured surfaces. Choose pads designed for 1,500 to 12,000 maximum rpms for a variety of uses. Overall Diameter (Imperial)
Q: Why is my hook and loop sandpaper not sticking?
If your hook and loop sanding discs are no longer sticking to your sander this is likely due to the worn out hooks on your sander's back-up pad. The back-up pad on your sander has hooks which receive and hold the loop backing of your sandpaper discs to keep it in place.
Q: How does hook and loop work?
Hook and loop fasteners have two strips; the rough side has hundreds of tiny 'hooks' and the softer side has hundreds of tiny 'loops'. When you press the two strips together, the hook cling to the loops to make them stick. The more hooks and loops that are attached, the stronger the hook and loop fastener will be.
Q: What is the hook and loop attachment method?
Hook-and-loop fasteners, hook-and-pile fasteners or touch fasteners (often referred to by the genericized trademark velcro, which was the original name given by the inventor, and due to the prominence of the Velcro Brand) consist of two components: typically, two lineal fabric strips (or, alternatively, round "dots" or ...
