A flap disc is an abrasive product designed for right-angle grinding applications. They serve as an alternative to the grinding wheel and are a highly versatile tool that can meet your needs in a broad range of applications. Flap discs are made from multiple overlapping pieces of abrasives known as flaps, hence their name. They are used in heavy stock removal, surface blending, smooth finishing, and many other types of right-angle grinding applications. The first abrasive flap discs were developed in the 1970s and were very basic. Modern flap discs offer a broad and diverse range of advantages.

A gasket is a type of mechanical seal used to fill the space between two or more mating surfaces, usually to prevent leakage from or into the joined surfaces while under compression. Gaskets are commonly produced by cutting from sheet materials and are intended for less-than-perfect mating surfaces where they can fill irregularities. While gaskets have many uses, they are frequently found in engines, where many types of gaskets are used. For example, head gaskets are installed to fill the space between the engine block and cylinder head, and engine gaskets are used to provide a seal from harmful elements that would otherwise enter the engine.
