Grinding Discs Information

Grinding discs are abrasive accessories for angle grinders which are used for grinding metal, eg when removing welding seams. They are available for all the common sizes of angle grinder, though 115mm grinding discs are the most numerous. The standard grinding disc looks much like an abrasive cutting disc but with a thicker construction. Like cutting discs, there are a number of safety considerations to be aware of when using them.

Grinding Disc Safety:

Under certain conditions, grinding discs can break apart while in use - as they are typically rotating at very high speeds, the shrapnel from such an event can be extremely dangerous. Always ensure the guard is positioned to provide maximum protection and keep any bystanders out of harm's way. Grinding discs are much more likely to break if they are old or damaged, and they will have a use by date printed on them. Any discs that are out of date or damaged should be thrown away (it is good practise to break them in half to prevent anyone else using them). Abrasive accessories can also break if they are run too fast so pay attention to the maximum RPM rating on the disc and ensure your machine does not exceed this. Eye protection is essential when using grinding discs and a face shield is recommended.
