What do you need to know about Bonded Abrasive Wheels? What kinds of safety precautions should you take when using them? What is the difference between Type 1 and Type 27 cut-off wheel?
Virginia Abrasives carries two types of bonded abrasives, also called cut-off wheels:
- Type 1, which is flat
- Type 27, which has a depressed center
The type of cut-off wheel you will need depends upon the equipment on which you need to use it. The wheels provide a clean cut when used with a cut off tool. Silicon carbide is the abrasive material used in all cut-off wheels and it is valued as the second strongest naturally occuring substance available. It is bonded onto a stainless steel wheel for durability.
