The Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning FE Belt saves time preparing workpieces for final finishes and coatings by performing one-step prep work. A reliable choice for edgework, some of its best uses include deburring and blending. FE material is an outstanding performer for flats and edgework when high contact pressure and stock removal are required.

  • High edge durability and flexibility
  • Designed for blending and deburring on ferrous metals, stainless steel, and high nickel/chrome alloys
  • Aluminum Oxide on FE material provides high initial and extended cut rate
  • Most efficient on ferrous materials when high contact pressure and stock removal are required
  • Open web responds to surface irregularities and minimizes gouging of the part
  • Non-woven construction provides for long life, flexibility, heat-resistance and consistent cut rate
  • Suitable for low-stretch applications

  1. What are the specifications for Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning FE Belt 885101, 1/2 in x 24 in MED, 10 ea/Case?

    The Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning FE Belt 885101 has a width of a half inch and length of twenty-four inches. It comes with a medium abrasive grade and is sold in cases containing ten individual belts.

  2. Can this belt be used on various surfaces including plastics, metals or composite materials?

    Yes! This surface conditioning FE belt is versatile enough to use on metals, plastics as well as composite materials. It's designed to provide consistent finishes while also maintaining cut rates.

  3. How long does one belt last if I am using it regularly?

    The lifespan of a Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning FE Belt can vary depending on different variables like material being worked with and working condition but generally speaking these belts have excellent durability since they utilize coated fiber material construction that extends their longevity under normal operating environments.

FE Construction for Edge Work, High Contact Pressure and Stock Removal

The Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning FE Belt is designed to provide high initial and extended rates of cut, while maintaining edge durability. This belt is constructed of resin-reinforced, non-woven fiber, which is more compact than Buff & Blend products. It is aggressive yet minimizes under-cutting or gouging of the workpiece. The FE belt performs the best on edges within the Standard Abrasives™ line of surface conditioning belts.

FE belts are made of a tough but flexible nylon mesh that fits any contoured surface. The FE material is designed with a woven fabric (scrim) embedded in the nylon structure to provide additional strength and durability. This helps extend the life of the belt and allows for extended use on ferrous materials or steel. This is the best surface conditioning material to use when high contact pressure and stock removal are required, and when loading is not a concern.

The Outstanding Performance of Surface Conditioning Material

Surface conditioning products have a non-woven construction in which fiber strands, resin, and abrasive mineral form a thick, open web or mesh. The fibers respond to contours and effectively remove unwanted burrs, soils and contaminants while maintaining the geometry of the workpiece, which in turn reduces rework and boosts productivity. Gaps in the web allow heat and swarf to escape, prolonging the performance of the abrasive. Fibers in the web continually break down with use to reveal fresh mineral for exceptional consistency, superior cut performance and extremely long service life.

Aluminum Oxide for Ferrous Metals and Composites

The fibers that make up this belt are overlaid with aluminum oxide abrasive. Aluminum oxide belts are a good match for operators who desire an all-purpose versatility and economy. The mineral cuts fast while blending and deburring and is a good choice for applications on ferrous metals and composites. FE belts feature a premium grain with higher fracture strength, meaning the mineral will fragment and renew more readily. They are available in grades of Very Fine (VFN), Medium (MED) and Coarse (CRS).

Recommended Applications

The Surface Conditioning FE Belt comes in many different widths and lengths for use on pneumatic sanders, portable belt sanders, backstand equipment, and floor mounted/platen sanders. Its thick coating of resin makes it ideal for material removal where loading is not an issue. Choose this belt for use on ferrous metals, stainless steel, and high nickel/chrome alloys to perform:

  • Deburring: removing large and micro burrs, edge radiusing, removing die cast flashings
  • Blending: removing mill marks, tool marks and mismatches; reducing uneven edges between adjoining surfaces; reorienting surface scratch patterns; creating a smooth transition from one surface profile to another
