What is the 3M™ Utility Cloth Roll 314D used for?
The 3M™ Utility Cloth Roll 314D, P180 J-weight, 1 in x 50 yd, can be used for hand sanding on a variety of surfaces such as wood and metal.
Can this be cut to different lengths if I don't need a full roll?
Absolutely! You can easily tear off any length you need from the roll.
How long does each roll last?
That varies depending on usage, but the cloth backing provides durability so it will typically last longer than regular sandpaper sheets.
The sanding strip is a versatile product that can be torn from the roll to fit specific applications. Most grades have a light, J-weight cloth backing that allows for flexibility when sanding circular edges, angles, or other contours. Rolls in grades P50 or P60 have a slightly stiffer X-weight backing that is suitable for more coarse sanding applications. The cloth backing remains durable even when bent or rolled, without tearing or shelling. Additionally, 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 due to its fast cut-rate and long life. This mineral creates a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges, while 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.
