arrow Flap Discs PLANTEX® Universal - the environmentally friendly flap disc

The new PLANTEX® flap disc has been developed to replace the glass fibre discs. This natural fibre high tech compound material required a new, patented treatment method (impact process) for hemp fibres to be developed before the required strength values for grinding discs could be achieved. This material is harmless, can be disposed of easily and is made mainly of sustainable natural materials that produce a good CO2 balance throughout the process from production to disposal.

A comparison to convince everybody!

logo ® Universal flap discs cost no more than conventional flap discs with glass fibre backing, but offer you considerable added value:

  • longer service life and faster cutting rate due to the flexible backing, resulting in bigger contact surface area during grinding, improved heat dissipation and lower grinding temperatures
  • Top quality abrasives material - 100% pure zircon
  • Environmentally friendly backing disc that is better for the operators health; made of hemp fibre high tech compound
  • Safe to use - no harmful glass fibre dust or resin vapours are produced during the grinding operation or trimming of the discs
    (smells similar to wood chips)
  • Plantex® discs can be worn down completely, the backing disc can be easily trimmed down - it produces soft, harmless swarf that can be disposed of as domestic waste
  • Hemp is a sustainable raw material which saves energy, resources and protects the environment
  • Hemp has an attractive CO2 energy balance and counteracts the Greenhouse effect
  • The strength of hemp in the high tech compound is by no means inferior to glass fibre
  • The high tech compound can be disposed of easily and is not a special waste like glass fibre discs

A comparison to convince everybody:

backing fibre
+ high strength with low weight
 
+ high shape stability - yet elastic
- brittle, not elastic
+ adjusts well to the workpiece surface during operation
- not very flexible
+ heat-absorbent - reduces the temperature during grinding
- builds up heat during operation - glazes abrasives
+ good chemical properties, resistant to most chemicals
- difficult to trim
+ self-trimming, very easy to cut, without emissions of harmful glass fibre dust and chemical resin vapours. The backing disc is trimmed back automatically during the grinding process
- razor-sharp glass fibre pieces are produced during grinding and trimming, which can damage the workpiece or may cause injuries
+ easy disposal, no special waste - classed as domestic waste
- must be disposed as special waste
+ made of sustainable natural raw material - protects valuable resources
- high energy consumption for production and disposal of discs
+ much better stock removal rate and service life due to the flexible backing disc and the use of 100% pure Zircon abrasives
- relatively rigid disc allows the use of a section of the available abrasives only
= VALUE FOR MONEY AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY = NO BENEFITS - SIMILAR PRICES

flexcible
flexible 1 flexible

The Plantex® high tech compound is elastic and adjusts better to curved workpieces. The elasticity has another performance enhancing effect: because its flexible, the flap discs has a considerably larger contact surface area and thus removes more material (see picture to the left). The abrasion capacity is therefore higher and the larger contact surface area also dissipates more heat, resulting in a cooler workpiece and eliminating the glazing of the abrasive disc.

 

Zircopur grit, 100% pure Zirconium with integrated cooling agents
The cooling agent in the bond of the flap disc and above all the heat absorption of the high tech compound material dissipate excessive heat during the grinding process. A cooler grinding process also extends the service life of the flap discs.cool

Use all the material on the disc down to the last millimetre by automatic trimming of the backing disc during grinding - or simply trim using the Plantex flap disc on a sharp steel edge. Significant time and money savings!

The right speed increases the service life of a flap disc by up to 100 %

The right speed increases the service life of a flap disc by up to 100 % - virtually doubling the life. The optimal speed for flap discs is between 5000 - 8000 rpm, depending on their size and the material surface. Used at the optimum speed, they achieve their optimum grinding capacity and service life.

Variable speed angle grinders, especially our Varilex WSF 1600, are the preferred angle grinder for all types of flap discs.

Never has disc changing been so quick, easy and efficient!

Thanks to the EASY-LOCK clamping nut the abrasives on an angle grinder can now be changed in seconds without requiring any tools or opening a clamp etc. The EASY-LOCK clamping nut will work with any abrasive with a hemp or ABS backing disc. That means you can change any Eisenblatter abrasives for an angle grinder in a matter of seconds using this uniquely simple solution.

The clamping collar shaped on the top of the EASY-LOCK clamping nut can secure flap discs and abrasives with a "THICKER" backing disc securely as well as centering them at the same time. "THIN" abrasives such as cutting discs etc can simply be secured using the reverse of the EASY-LOCK clamping nut.
