Elite Abrasives has a history of providing top quality products at a price our customers love. The demand from customers for improved surface finishes drove us to delve deeply into the field of abrasives. We have become very knowledgeable in the field of abrasives and manufacture Flap Discs, Clean & Strip-It Discs, Surface Conditioning Discs, Quick Change Discs, Sanding Belts, and Resin Fiber Discs. Our products are used to grind, cut, blend, and polish metal and a variety of other materials. Each of our product performance is outstanding and is priced extremely competitively.

Even Cut Abrasives is based in Cleveland, Ohio and has overseen providing private labels for their customers since 1932. We cut, trim, fold, glue, stamp, and slit coated abrasives into almost anything one might imagine. Key products include abrasive cones, cartridge rolls, square pads, cross pads, flap wheels, and flap discs. We have made it easy for our private label customers to order, receive, and resell a product that meets their requirements and exceed their expectations. We do this with as much American made content as possible. We are the only company in the U.S. building and selling shank mounted flap wheels made in the U.S.A. A lot of companies may sell the product, but we are the only ones that manufacture it here. Finally, our flap disc products – we use the very best raw materials and build them for the Even Cut brand as well as many other companies.
