Norton Red Heat Abrasive Belts and Discs

Nov. 9, 2016
Faster Cut Rate, Fewer Changeovers and Long Product Life.

Norton | Saint-Gobain has introduced the Norton Red Heat R983 product line of abrasive belts and discs that provides optimum resistance to wear with sharp cutting capabilities of a ceramic grain that defies premature dulling and ensures fast, efficient cutting. The Red Heat R983 family of products features a "supersize" grinding aid lubricant that saves significant time changing over from slower-grinding, fast-wearing discs and belts. Red Heat decreases production time and cuts up to 40% faster than competitive products, increasing profitability.

Designed for grinding and polishing of Inconel, stainless steel, carbon steel and other metals, the Red Heat R983 suite of products includes flap discs and quick-change discs that are ideal for a broad range of applications in markets such as welding, MRO, transportation and aerospace. Red Heat also comprises a line of belts extremely well-suited for MRO, medical, aerospace, foundry, welding and transportation. 

Due to the enhanced grain/bond adhesion, Red Heat products require less pressure that produces reduced operator fatigue, a cooler cut and quality finishes.  Red Heat's unique weave of Norton's new fiery-red Y-Plus weight and an engineered backing creates a greater surface area, allowing more adhesion points for maximum grain retention and less grain shed and edge wear, so belts and discs last longer and won't split, rip or stretch.
