RotoZip Course and Medium 4" ZipDiscs Preview News & Opinion

RotoZip Course and Medium 4″ ZipDiscs Preview

RotoZip is a tool that is stretching its reach in the marketplace. It’s a tool that has amped up (literally) the power output and options so that it can do a lot more than just spiral cutting and basic sanding. Now, with the introduction of two new fast removal and finishing discs, paint and rust have a new enemy. The new Zip Discs include a 4” Medium abrasive wheel and a 4″ Coarse abrasive wheel, and are designed for the fast removal of coatings and imperfections from metal, wood and even concrete.


The design of the new ZipDiscs is that you can apply only minimal pressure to remove stain from a wooden deck, rust from metal or paint from a concrete surface. Additionally, the Discs are made so that they take off the finish without ruining the work piece. Instead of using plastic or fiberglass backings, ZipDiscs have an integrated solid metal backing which extends their useful life. Both discs also include an anti-clog design, which protects the discs from excess build-up during difficult coating removals.
