mini angle grinder

Abrasive Disc User: Dave Dunham, Auto Refurb, Nuneaton

Tool Used: Right angle grinder

The Situation: Respraying a 1974 VW Beetle

Abrasive Disc Task: To use an abrasive disc to strip and clean a VW Beetle of many layers of paint, rust and corrosion.

Abrasive Disc Action: Dave used the Norton Blaze Rapid Strip Disc to strip and clean the entire body of the VW Beetle (including the grills and tyre wells!). The Blaze Rapid Strip Disc from Norton Abrasives, with an advanced resin bond, enabled Dave to use his right angle grinder effectively – removing rust and paint had never been quicker.

Result of using Blaze Rapid Strip Disc: Usually, body shops use fibre discs or sand blasters to strip cars of paint and rust. But this is not necessary when the Blaze Rapid Strip Disc can be used for:

  • Heavy, duty coating removal
  • Rust removal
  • Corrosion removal

Using the abrasive, Dave effectively stripped the entire car of multiple layers of paint, rust and corrosion using only one disc. Significantly, Dave was also able to use the abrasive disc for another job because of its long life. And due to the disc’s flexible construction, the grills and the tyre wells of the car could be stripped without any gouging.

Dave from Auto refurb swiftly ordered another batch of the abrasive discs – he was impressed with the speed and efficiency of the product.
