What is the 3M Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Low Stretch Belt made of?
The 3M Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Low Stretch Belt is made of a non-woven nylon material that has abrasive particles bonded to it.
Is this low stretch belt suitable for use on all types of metal surfaces?
Yes, the 3M Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Low Stretch Belt can be used on all types of metal surfaces and contours, including stainless steel, mild steel, nickel alloy and aluminum.
Is this product durable enough to withstand heavy duty tasks?
Definitely! The belt's design features a strong and long-lasting construction. It has consistent cutting action with very little heat generation so you don't have to worry about wear-and-tear even when tackling tough cleaning jobs.
: How long does each belt last?
: This varies depending on job conditions such as pressure applied during usage. However they are manufactured under strict quality control to ensure longevity so our customers can rely on them for longer service life than most abrasives in the market today.
Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Low Stretch Belt is a durable and flexible solution for cleaning, finishing and light deburring applications. It is most effective on steel and stainless steel, carbon, titanium and nickel alloys, but can also be used on aluminum, copper, brass and soft, non-ferrous metals. With many variations available, operators can find the perfect belt for their unique project.Minerals, Grades and Belt Types
The Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Low Stretch Belt is engineered using aluminum oxide and silicon carbide minerals. It is available in combinations such as aluminum oxide medium (A MED), aluminum oxide very fine (A VFN), aluminum oxide coarse (A CRS), silicon carbide medium (S MED), silicon carbide super fine (S SFN), and silicon carbide very fine (S VFN). Aluminum oxide is softer but lasts longer than silicon carbide, making it ideal for projects where a soft scratch is desirable. Silicon carbide, on the other hand, is perfect for projects where a coarser, more aggressive cut is desired. Choose a fine grade for finer finishes and medium or coarse grades for coarser finishes. The Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Low Stretch Belt is intended for use in "low stretch" applications when a standard scrim belt is stretching on the machine or when less conformability is desired. It is resistant to wear and sharp edges, making it useful in a variety of industries, from transportation to metal fabrication.
The belt is available in different types, including file, narrow, portable, pump sleeve and wide & flat finishing. Operators should consider tools, surface area, contours and dimensions of a workpiece when choosing a belt. Narrow belts are commonly used in benchstand and backstand applications, while pump sleeves are fitted around expander wheels and used for finishing large equipment that cannot be moved.The Many Benefits of Open Web Abrasives
Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives are unique due to their nonwoven technology. A combination of fiber strands, resin and abrasive mineral forms a thick, open web. The spring-like nature of the fibers responds to contours and effectively removes unwanted burrs, soils and contaminants while maintaining the geometry of the workpiece. Gaps in the web allow swarf to escape, so debris does not clog the mineral. Fibers in the web continually break down with use to reveal fresh mineral for exceptional consistency, superior cut performance and extremely long service life. Scotch-Brite products not only enhance productivity, but also increase operator. From aesthetic finishing to weld blending, deburring and more, Scotch-Brite abrasives work fast and deliver consistent results, part after part.Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belts
Overall, operators choose Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belts for cleaning, finishing, blending and deburring. The non-woven material combined with abrasive grain is an ideal way to add a great finish or remove burrs while maintaining the geometry of the workpiece. Trust Scotch-Brite™ Belts to deliver fantastic finishes.
