Is it possible for me to reuse the used portions if they are not worn out yet?
The decision whether one should reuse a part that has been already worked upon depends on many factors like how deep one had worked upon earlier. It's better not to experiment too much with just half-used pieces as new ones provide efficient results because it contains fresh abrasives compared older sections where some might be degraded by heat because of friction generated during sanding operation.
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. For more coarse sanding applications, rolls in grades P50 or P60 have a slightly stiffer X-weight backing. 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, unlike traditional natural abrasives that dull more quickly. Aluminum oxide abrasive 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.
