Norton Unleashes Cutting-Edge RazorStar Abrasives for Unmatched Grinding Performance

Saint-Gobain Abrasives has unveiled Norton RazorStar Fiber Discs, Quick-Change Discs, and Belts, incorporating shaped ceramic grain to elevate performance in challenging grinding applications. The distinctive combination of razor-sharp grains, coupled with a substantial grinding aid, effectively reduces heat generation for cooler cuts and prolonged abrasive life on diverse materials like carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel, nickel alloys, and other hard-to-grind metals.

Featuring engineered, shaped grain with consistent geometry and sharp cutting points, Norton RazorStar Belts and Discs deliver high cut rates and efficient material removal. The specialized geometry and robust micro-structure enable the grain to stay sharp, with new cutting points emerging upon grain fracture, ensuring extended abrasives life. Additionally, RazorStar abrasive products boast a high concentration of grains positioned upright, ready to cut and aggressively perform at their sharpest point.

Jeremy Spencer, Product Manager at Norton | Saint-Gobain Abrasives, notes, “We are witnessing up to a 50% improvement in cutting performance compared to other ceramic discs on the market today. We are thrilled to provide our customers with new abrasive discs that will elevate their grinding performance to a new level of efficiency, particularly in tasks such as removing welds, grinding, beveling, and heavy deburring.”

Available in 36-grit, the new RazorStar Fiber Discs, Quick-Change Discs, and Belts come in various sizes and configurations. RazorStar Fiber Discs range from 4 1/2″ to 9″ in 7/8 hole, speed-change, and AVOS discs, catering to key markets like MRO, metal fabrication, welding, oil and gas, energy, and shipbuilding. RazorStar Quick-Change Discs, in 2″ and 3″ sizes, feature a robust backing suitable for high-pressure applications, including stock removal, deburring, beveling, and blending, and find applications in aerospace, MRO, metal fabrication, welding, and the energy industry. RazorStar Belts, tailored to specific requirements, excel in impact grinding, robotic or off-hand applications, and find utility in markets such as foundry, aerospace, automotive, metal fabrication, oil and gas, and general engineering.
