Norton Abrasives, a manufacturer of metal fabrication abrasives products for over 125 years, has introduced an upgrade of its BEST-tier depressed center wheels for right angle grinding applications. Norton NorZon Plus wheels now utilize a proprietary blend of Norton’s patented, newest generation SG ceramic alumina and Norton BlueFireTM zirconia alumina abrasives, combined with a new high performance bond system for significantly improved grain micro-fracturing. The new Norton NorZon Plus line has also been expanded with the introduction of Norton NorZon Plus Fast Cut Depressed Center Wheels.

The manufacturer said that Norton NorZon Plus’ improved micro-fracturing capability provides a continual supply of serrated cutting edges, enabling increased productivity, wheel life and overall cost effectiveness across a broad spectrum of right angle grinding applications. New Norton NorZon Plus wheels provide 50-100% better overall performance than competitive ceramic alumina wheels. NorZon Plus Fast Cut provides a 15-30% improved cut rate over standard NorZon Plus wheels, significantly better than competitive zirconia alumina wheels. NorZon Plus wheels offer the fastest cutting, longest lasting, lowest total cost solution on the market. NorZon Plus wheels were invented in the U.S. and are also made in the U.S.

The new Norton NorZon Plus is suited for steel, stainless steel and other ferrous metals. Wheels are available in sizes 4-9” in 0.25” thickness.
