  1. What is the 3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 253FA?

    The 3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 253FA is an abrasive belt designed for industrial metalworking applications. It features a unique triangular structure of abrasive grains that delivers consistent performance throughout its long life.

  2. What does A6 XF-weight mean?

    A6 and XF-weight refer to the grit size and backing weight, respectively. A6 indicates this belt has a refined grain-coated surface with finer abrasives than those in lower-numbered grades, which can result in smoother finishes on harder materials. XF-weight refers to a heavy-duty backing for extra durability and support.

  3. How big is each cloth belt?

    The dimensions of these specific belts are 19 inches by 60 inches.

  4. What's the Film-lok technology used here all about?

    The Film-lok system provides quick, secure attachment of these sanding belts onto compatible back-up pads without requiring any adhesives or mechanical fasteners. This saves time while ensuring that they stay firmly attached during use.

  5. How many pieces come per pack?

    The pack includes ten (10) individual pieces/belts which ensures you maximize your investment and have several backups available when needed.

Engineered for the Finish

3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 253FA is an abrasive belt that is designed to sand scratches, gouges, dents, and stains on a range of metals without wearing easily. It is made with a tough XF-weight polyester cloth backing that has enough flex to respect surface irregularities and the stamina to withstand rugged use. These attributes make it a good match for flat or centerless finishing applications that require a sturdy abrasive that is still sensitive to surface irregularities.

This belt is available in a wide variety of forms, widths, and lengths for many different metalworking applications, as well as non-standard and make-to-order forms. It comes in grades from A100 to A6, and Trizact abrasives are graded uniquely. Grade is defined by the average particle size in microns and is indicated with an "A." Lower is finer.

Best for Wet Finishing

This belt is best for wet flat finishing and intermediate finishing of ferrous metals like stainless steel, carbon steel, as well as non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, nickel alloys, cobalt steel, copper, and brass.

The Cutting Edge

Microreplication is a proprietary 3M technology that involves engineering and reproducing precisely sculpted microscopic shapes, with extreme uniformity, across a surface. In the case of abrasive mineral, that surface is a cloth or film backing. As these structures break down during use, new mineral is continually exposed. The uniform configuration and spacing of 3M™ Trizact™ abrasive minerals reduces the risk of uneven finishes and contributes to consistent and predictable performance from start to finish.

From surgical tools to automotive transmission components, 3M™ Trizact™ abrasives are designed to deliver a consistent finish part after part.
