Walter Surface Technologies, the global industry leader in surface treatment technologies, aims to enhance blending and finishing processes in metalworking shops with its new Blendex U™ Turbo blending disc.

The disc was constructed using a heat-resistant non-woven matrix, which helps it to provide a more consistent finish without smearing. “The Blendex U™ Turbo disc is made of self-sharpening grains, so you know the disc will last long, all while providing a uniform finish,” says Jonathan Douville, Product Manager, Surfox, E-Weld and Finishing Abrasives at Walter Surface Technologies. “The self-sharpening grains also allow for high material removal on many different surfaces. The disc performs exceptionally well on steel, stainless steel and aluminium alloys.”

Blendex U™ Turbo uses Blendex™ Unitized Technology, and was designed specifically to blend fillet welds as well as deburr sharp edges commonly found across industries such as automotive, aerospace, food & beverage, manufacturing and any fabrication environment. “The disc will conform to tough angles, corners and hard to reach areas,” adds Douville. “The wheel is more versatile than many other finishing abrasives, saving you steps in the finishing process and reducing your cycle time.”

The Blendex U™ Turbo is part of Walter’s world-class high performance finishing abrasives.
