What Makes the RCD Rapid Combi Disc Unique?

RCD is a combination of a flexible poly-cotton abrasive cloth combined with surface conditioning material.

  • The flexible abrasive does the cutting
  • The surface conditioning does the finishing.

The cushioning effect of the surface conditioning material behind the flexible abrasive makes it ideal for sanding tig welds on tubes.  The soft action ensures no flat spots and a great finish.  This cushioning makes the RCD the must have flexible flap disc.

What is the best way to use the RCD?

  1. Sand along the curve of the tube or balustrade.  This will put the satin finish in the right direction straight away.
  2. Sand at a shallow angle.  Between 15 and 30 degrees will improve abrasive disc life and make it easier to control the sanding action.
  3. Reduce grinder speed to between 3,00 and 5,000rpm to remove heat from the workpiece.  The right speed allows the RCD to work in a controlled manner and increases disc life.
