What is the backing material of 3M™ Utility Cloth Roll 314D, P60 X-weight?
The backing material of this cloth roll is a durable J-weight cloth.
Can I use it for a wide range of applications?
Yes, you can. This cloth roll can be used on ferrous and non-ferrous metalworking and woodworking materials. It is suitable for sanding, deburring, stripping and cleaning surfaces.
How long does the cloth last before I need to change it?
The lifespan of the cloth depends on how often you use it and what type of application you are using it for. However, with its high-quality abrasive mineral tough construction, long cutting life and consistent finish make it ideal for prolonged use in various industrial environments.
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.
