Why Flap Discs from TAF Abrasives USA

In the late 1960’s TAF Abrasivi engineers pursued an ambitious project of designing a new type of disc that would continuously expose a fresh new grinding surface instead of continuing to wear down a single layer of abrasive as common to cloth and paper discs used with a backing pad. It was this innovative project that led to the introduction of the original flap disc, for which TAF Abrasivi was awarded a patent in 1966 (Patent 704640, dated April 22, 1966) and then forever changed the future of the abrasives industry.
