how do disc grinders work?

My disk grinder has a series AC motor attached to a rubber disk upon which the grinding sheet is attached. The grinding sheet I use is carbide glued to paper. The carbide coated sheet rotates against the metal, usually a weld I am smoothing, and the metal wears away faster than the carbide coating.
