Rex-Cut debuts rust removing cotton fiber abrasive wheels

July 29, 2013

Rex-Cut Abrasives has introduced a line of cotton fiber abrasive wheels for removing rust, corrosion, and thread-lock from pipe threads during oil field inspections and process maintenance, as well as deburring manufactured pipe and tubing.

Rex-Cut Type 1 Wheels for pipe thread maintenance feature multiple layers of nonwoven cotton fabric and aluminum oxide abrasives pressed and bonded together with a soft bond and are ideally suited for removing rust and corrosion from pipe threads.

Developed for use on stainless steel, Inconel, and other highly-alloyed pipe and tubing, Rex-Cut Type 1 Wheels and Smooth Touch Wheels for pipe thread maintenance are available 1/16", 1/8", and 1/4" thick and 2", 3" and 4" sizes. For manual or robotic deburring and finishing of machined and cast parts, different grit types, grain sizes, and bonds are offered.

Since the early 1920s, Rex-Cut Abrasives has been manufacturing a nonwoven cotton fabric that is impregnated with abrasive grit and then pressed and formed into various shapes. These specialty abrasive products constantly reveal fresh abrasives as they work and typically reduce finishing steps in all types of industrial and architectural welding and metal fabrication applications.
