What is the 3M Cloth Belt 577F made of?
The backing material of the 3M Cloth Belt 577F is cloth and it features a ceramic/aluminum oxide blend abrasive grain for increased durability.
Can I use this belt on my hand-held sander?
Yes, this belt can be used on handheld sanders because it has a flexible backing that conforms well to contours, making it ideal for small jobs as well as large ones.
How long will these belts last under normal usage conditions?
Typically, the lifespan depends on several factors such as workload and operating speed. However, our proprietary abrasive grain technology ensures longer life and faster cut rates than conventional aluminum oxide belts.
What are some of the applications where I can use these cloth belts?
A:The unique combination of high-performance ceramic grains with perfect ratios make them ideal for working with metals like carbon steel,stainless steel,nickel alloy .
Q :At what grit level does this cloth belt come in ?
A :The product comes in YF-weight which stands Young Flexibility Weight at 120 Grit level .
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
