Norton Vortex Rapid Blend discs are made from compressed and bonded layers of nonwoven abrasive. Applications include deburring, cleaning composites, and sharp edge removal. Unified wheels produce excellent finishes on nearly all surfaces, and they are ideally suited for use on harder materials such as titanium or stainless steel.

I plan to try the vortex but it is very insulting when you produce videos like this to sell them. You can clearly see the guy with the traditional grinding wheel not putting any pressure on the grinder and letting it bounce around and then not blending it. I dress welds all the time with the same type of grinder and wheel and I don't have a problem with it bouncing or not blending it. It's not difficult. Make the marketing video with someone who knows how to use a grinder next time.

A more fair comparison would be against a 3M Fiber Disk or a flap wheel of some kind.
