What is the 3M™ Utility Cloth Roll 314D made of?
The 3M™ Utility Cloth Roll 314D is made of aluminum oxide abrasive grains that are embedded in a durable cloth backing.
How long does each roll last, on average?
The lifespan of each roll will depend upon how frequently it's used, and for what purpose. But generally speaking, our customers report getting several uses out of each roll.
Is this product easy to tear down to size for smaller tasks?
Yes! One advantage to using a cloth-based abrasive like the 3M™ Utility Cloth Roll 314D is its flexibility. You can easily customize length or tear away pieces as needed with everyday scissors.
Would you recommend this type of abrasive cloth over alternatives such as sandpaper?
Yes - When compared with traditional sanding paper products, the flexible composition results in longer life and less loading than conventional discs or wheels. Additionally they have superior versatility which allows them to be more versatile solutions when needing something different than your standard coated abrasives product would handle.
. Are larger sizes available if I need something bigger than the listed dimensions?
. Absolutely! We offer custom widths up to a maximum height and length combination so please ask us about quoting those options out for you if you’re looking for something outside our current stock offerings
The sanding strip roll is a versatile product that can be torn to the desired length for specific applications. Most grades have a light, J-weight cloth backing that provides the flexibility needed to conform to circular edges, angles, or other contours. 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.
