May 21, 2013
Saint-Gobain Abrasives, under its Norton brand has launched a new range of high performance wheels for cutting-off and grinding primarily for use in automotive refinish and repair, but also in the marine, aerospace and industrial markets.
The Norton Blue Fire range offers a choice of high quality thin wheels for use on angle grinders and straight grinders in all rough applications such as weld removal, surface preparation, metal removal, reshaping and cutting-off rusted and corroded materials. Norton Blue Fire is the choice of the professional and is fast cutting and comfortable to use.
The wheels are packaged in clear and attractive clam-shell packs in small quantities (5 pcs. for cutting-off wheels and 2 pcs. for grinding wheels). The range also includes spindles for use on straight grinders for mounting cutting-off or grinding wheels if the arbour hole doesn't match the machine diameter. The spindles are available for wheels with 6 mm, 8 mm or 10 mm hole and gives a safe and secure mounting on the machine. The Norton Blue Fire range will be available from 22nd May 2013, making their debut at the Autopromotec Fair in Bologna, Italy, from 22nd to 27th May.
“This new range of cutting-off and grinding wheels replaces the current Norton offering for the automotive refinish and repair markets and provides a clear, concise choice for anyone looking for performance excellence and value for money.” said Derk Vruwink, Product manager, Saint-Gobain Abrasives.
