Finally! Red Label Abrasives now offers high density flap discs featuring our Edgecore Ceramic! You can use these discs to grind away forge scales, clean up welds, shape, cut, sharpen, hone and blend metals. The flap discs are available in P40, P60 & P80 grits. Our industrial quality flap discs are perfect for non ferrous metals (aluminum, copper, titanium, nickel) and ferrous metals (steel, stainless steel, pig iron, alloys, hardened steel, etc.). The recommended max speed for use is 12,000 RPM.
Our Edgecore Ceramic features resin over resin bonding with an anti-clogging stearate that delivers an even finish and cooler grinding temperatures. Our flap discs are manufactured in the USA and we offer a money back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with your purchase (we have a feeling you will be though).

Flap Disc Uses
Flap discs are versatile abrasive products that can be used to grind, blend, and finish workpieces. They are often used in processes that involve industrial maintenance, welding, machining, and heavy-duty equipment work.
Flap discs are popular amongst knifemakers and bladesmiths, because using a flap disc is one of the easiest ways to remove forge scale from blades. Other general uses include removing rust from metal, blending weld seams, cleaning flash from molds and castings, grinding edges, and deburring.
Type 29 Vs Type 27 Flap Discs
Flap discs may be labeled one of two different types: type 27 (may also be referred to as t27) and type 29 (may also be referred to as t29). The type refers to the angle of the disc surface. T27 flap discs feature a flat surface where t29 flap discs feature a surface that is slightly angled or pitched. Type 29 flap discs are typically preferred by makers, because the angle of the disc makes shaping and contouring easier. That is precisely why our Edgecore Ceramic Flap Discs are manufactured to be type 29.
What Is A High Density Flap Disc?
There are flap discs and then there are high density flap discs. High density flap discs take abrasive discs to the next level. High density discs are double the size of a normal disc. The extra material packed into a high density disc allows them to last two to three times longer than a normal flap disc.
Red Label’s High Density Edgecore Ceramic Flap Discs are some of the longest lasting discs on the market. The additional density provides longevity, but the ceramic grain also increases lifespan. Ceramic discs can last three times longer than zirconia discs and five times longer than aluminum oxide discs. Our high density ceramic discs can also last up to two times longer than a standard ceramic abrasive flap disc.
