Rapid Prep Range
Rapid Prep is the new Norton line of
surface conditioning products (SCM).
They are comprised of synthetic, nonwoven fibers that are bonded to another
material in order to give them more body
and the appropriate rigidity for the
application.
This enables them to be used in
numerous forms such as belts, quickchange discs, discs, rolls, and
specialties. Scrim (hook & loop) and Ywt. polyester are the bonded backing.
