What is the 3M™ Utility Cloth Roll 314D?
The 3M™ Utility Cloth Roll 314D is an abrasive roll designed for sanding and finishing on a range of surfaces. It features a flexible J-weight cloth backing and uses aluminum oxide abrasive mineral.
What size is this roll and how many are in a case?
This particular utility cloth roll has dimensions of 1 inch x 50 yards, with five rolls included in each case.
Where could I use the P400 grit version of this cloth roll?
The P400 grit rating makes this particular model ideal for moderate sanding applications such as removing rust or paint, preparing surfaces prior to painting or sealing, and finishing metal edges after welding.
The sanding strip roll is a versatile product that allows for tearing of the desired length for specific applications. The majority of grades have a light, J-weight cloth backing that provides the flexibility needed to conform to circular edges, angles, or other contours. However, rolls in grades P50 or P60 have a slightly stiffer X-weight backing suitable for more coarse sanding applications. The cloth remains durable even when bent or rolled, without tearing or shelling, but strips can be torn by hand when a smaller piece is needed, without compromising the sanding surface.
Aluminum oxide is a popular choice among industrial professionals because of its fast cut-rate and long life. This mineral makes a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges, whereas traditional natural abrasives dull more quickly. Aluminum oxide is suitable for a wide variety of materials in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys. It can be used on ferrous and non-ferrous metals, wood, and plastic.
