Flap Wheels

Supplier: Klingspor

Developed by KLINGSPOR over 40 years ago the flap wheel has found many practical and economical uses in surface finishing work.


The KLINGSPOR flap wheel is comprised of high quality grinding flaps coated with aluminium oxide. The fan-shaped radial arrangement is firmly anchored by a resign core at the centre of the abrasive mop wheel.

The structure of the abrasive mop wheel provides for very soft, comfortable grinding behaviour and adapts optimally to the contours of the work piece.

KLINGSPOR flap wheels are especially suited for achieving a very smooth surface finish. KLINGSPOR has the perfect flap wheel to suit every surface, ranging from even to profiled surfaces, and is suited for nearly every material.
