Runs Smoother, Grinds Faster
Used with 3M™ Green Corps™ Flexible Grinding Wheels, the 3M™ Green-Corps™ Flexible Grinding Back-up Pads provide uniform support and increased cut uniformity on contoured surfaces.

Together they achieve high stock removal rate with minimal noise and vibration and can be used in edge beveling, chamfering, gate removal and plate grinding. The backup pad is required for safe operation of flexible grinding wheels. Both pads feature a standard 22mm diameter center hole.

Less Vibration, Reduced Chatter
This clear, flexible pad distributes pressure evenly over the work surface and cushions the abrasive action. The ease of use, lower vibration levels and reduced chatter resulting from the flexibility of the abrasive means it produces a better finish which is more easily blended. Less vibration and chatter serves to extend abrasive life, as well, and make for greater operator comfort.

The 3M™ Green Corps™ Flexible Grinding Wheel is a type 27 depressed centre, bonded wheel that offers enhanced flexibility to conform to contours, helping operators achieve a smoother finish on a variety of metals.

Depressed centre wheels may also be referred to as raised hub wheels or by their shape designation of “Type”, with Type 27 being the most popular. The depressed centre design allows the attachment mechanism to recess within the wheel so that it can be used for various grinding and cutting applications. Depressed center wheels are designed to handle the most severe right angle grinding applications from heavy stock removal to rough blending.

Weld Grinding and Stock Removal
With the 3M™ Green-Corps™ Flexible Grinding Back-up Pad, use 3M™ Green Corps™ Flexible Grinding Wheels with a right angle grinder for metal fabrication applications, including grinding, blending, weld leveling, metal prep and pipe notching. Applications include:

  • Removal of welding seams
  • Removal of weld spatter
  • Deflashing
  • Descaling and heavy deburring
