With the application of performance coating you will see a 50-60% increase in cutting speed when working on soft metals such as aluminum. While designed for soft metals, performance coating will deliver a 25% increase in cut and speed on all metals including mild steel, stainless steel, titanium, and nickel alloys.
Thin cut off wheels are designed for fast and accurate cutting and trimming. The accuracy of a cut depends on the thickness of the wheel. With tight tolerances, cutting or trimming with a thick wheel can disrupt accuracy, requiring more secondary work.
Industry standards in wheel thickness ranges from 0.030″ to 0.125″. PREDATOR™ Cut Off Wheels are offered in two widths – 0.040″ and 0.0625″ (or 1/16″). The thin dimensions of PREDATOR™ Cut Off Wheels prevent excessive material removal, allowing the wheel to last longer while producing finer cuts.
