Introduction to the grinding file
A-0010 – Rough boy’s primary use is for surface treatment in more extensive areas. Rough Boy is incredibly effective. You can attach the grinding file to our angle grinder, which is certified safe to use in ATEX↵ gas zone 1 and 2 and ATEX dust zone 21 and 22. Stop the need for time-consuming risk analysis and cost bound to shutdowns, fireguards, Hot Work permits↵, habitats, and demanding clean-up work.
Based on tests conducted by Safety Tools Allmet, Rough Boy removed 490 micrometers of oil-based paint and 1 m² in 49 minutes.
- Total length – 118mm
- Teeth length– 51mm

Health, Safety, and the Environment
Our grinding products are designed to comply with Health Safety & the Environment (HSE & OSHA) requirements. Offering low vibration, low heat, and low noise levels. The fragments produced are large, blunt, and will stay within a few centimeters/inches of your work area. This makes cleaning up simple and safe.
Safety Tools Allmet rotating grinding burrs and discs have a long lifespan and consist of solid tungsten carbide, which gives our burrs and discs a material property harder than an industrial diamond. The lifespan of the rotating grinding burrs and discs depends on the application, but generally, they last hundreds of times longer than conventional alternatives.
The grinding file is included in these packaged solutions:

Certified and classified by DNV as a cold work tool
All solutions from Safety Tools Allmet are ATEX Certified as safe to use in ATEX Gas zones 1 & 2 and dust zones 21 & 22. No need for a hot work permit, habitats, fire guards, shutdowns and nitrogen flushing/flushing.
Our rotating files and discs consist of solid tungsten carbide. The hardness and design of the teeth significantly increase the lifetime of the grinding files and discs.
Ex-certified cold work tools from Safety Tools Allmet provide a good, clean surface with a profile that meets the requirements of the SSPC-SP11 Surface Preparation Standard.
The solid tungsten head for Safety Tools cold rotating grinding files has different designs on its teeth so that they can produce different surface profiles for every situation. Our burrs create a roughness profile of between 40 – 75 microns.
Adhesion and Cleanliness
The correct surface profile creates a suitable anchor for paint and coatings. ATEX grinding tools from Safety Tools Allmet create good adhesion and a clean surface. Extensively independently tested for surface adhesion by International Paint, Jotun, Chevron and Weatherford.
