The RAG Reloaded Campaign | Norton Abrasives

The RAG Reloaded Campaign

It’s arguably the most versatile machine around, a mainstay of any metal fabricator’s tool box and an absolute essential when it comes to using abrasives: the right angle grinder (RAG). Now, our RAG campaign is back with a bang and better than ever.

RAG is Reloaded

As a leader in the abrasives industry, we are always keen to eulogise about the benefits of the right angle grinder, after all, a lot of our product range is used with one!

Paying homage to our favourite tool in the box, we’ve reloaded our successful RAG campaign with a refreshed product range, brand new materials for our customers, a great new video, and even an online competition.

The BIG Barbecue Build

Following on from the success of our “How to Make a Garden Heater” video in 2018, the Norton team have created a new work of metallic mastery in “The BIG Barbecue Build”.

Taking centre stage for the video are Paul Gray, Randy Pen, Tamas Kenyeres, and Derk Vruwink; good friends and colleagues from the Norton team. Centring around how to upcycle an old air tank into a brilliant barbecue, the video shows a host of metal fabrication processes that include cutting, grinding, weld removal, and surface refining, alongside some handy tips and tricks.

This is a true celebration of what can be achieved using a right angle grinder, Norton abrasives, a welder and a bit of know-how.
