When traditional aluminum oxide belts aren’t cutting it, try 3M™ Cloth Belt 577F with alumina zirconia abrasive grain. It offers increased cutting efficiency compared to aluminum oxide, and has a heavy, water-resistant polyester backing that stands up to high-pressure applications and edge work.
- Alumina zirconia mineral with grinding aid provides more cutting power than aluminum oxide
- Heavyweight cloth backing provides durability in high-production operations
- Runs cool for reliable use on heat-sensitive metals like aluminum and stainless steel
- Tough and versatile alumina zirconia mineral cuts fast and performs well on many substrates
- Available in a range of sizes and grades to fit your specific needs

What is the grit level of 3M™ Cloth Belt 577F, and what type of material can it sand?
The 3M™ Cloth Belt 577F has a grit level of 60 YF-weight. It's designed to sand metal surfaces such as steel, stainless steel, nickel alloys, and other non-ferrous materials.
Is the belt flexible enough to work on curved surfaces or edges?
Yes! The Single-flex design of the belt allows for greater flexibility while still maintaining its abrasive capability. This means that the belt works well with curved or contoured surfaces as well as flat ones.
How many belts come in a case?
Each case contains fifty (50) belts that are sized at 3 inches by 79 inches each. So it provides ample supplies for your project needs while providing quality results without needing frequent replacement.
3M™ Cloth Belt 577F is a versatile abrasive belt that is ideal for dimensioning parts, deburring, blending, and finishing castings and forgings made of aluminum, mild steel, and stainless steel or other exotic metal alloys. This belt is designed to reduce running temperatures and protect heat-sensitive alloys such as stainless steel, nickel alloys, and cobalt alloys. The grinding aid incorporated in the belt helps to reduce heat buildup, while the abrasive is firmly bonded to the backing with resin to maintain durability under high heat and pressure. The alumina zirconia abrasive fractures frequently to continually produce sharp points and deliver a faster cut-rate than aluminum oxide. This synthetic mineral was developed for heavy stock removal and high-pressure grinding.Sized to Suit Your Needs
Abrasive belts come in many different widths and lengths and are used on a variety of different belt sanding tools for many different metalworking applications. 3M offers a broad selection of belts to fit most any industrial belt sander. Wider belts are used with wide belt sanders and feed-through style flat finishers to smooth rough-cut edges of metal sheets or add a grain pattern to stainless steel sheets. Medium-width belts are generally used on a backstand for weld removal or for imparting a finish. Narrow belts can be used on file tools to access right angle corners for finishing.Applications
