What is the 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 966F used for?
The 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 966F is perfect for tough grinding and metal removal applications.
How long do these belts last compared to other brands?
The unique construction of the 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 966F allows it to outlast traditional ceramic abrasive belts, providing a longer lifespan and overall faster cutting times.
What is the grit size of this particular belt?
This belt has an 80+ grade grit and a "Y" F-weight backing allowing superior performance on tough materials such as stainless steel, cobalt chrome, Inconel & titanium alloys etc.
. Can I use this product with any type of sander?
. Yes, but they work best in combination with specially designed contact wheels from Scotch-Brite or another reputable manufacturer. Where specific compliance standards are set (e.g., non-sparking) care should be taken to ensure that recommended equipment complies with those applicable requirements
The 3M™ Cubitron II™ Cloth Belt 966F is a high-quality abrasive belt that is designed for moderate pressure applications. The belt features precision shaped grain that ensures a super-fast cut and lessens heat build-up in the workpiece, reducing heat-related stress cracks and discoloration. The water-resistant Z & Y-weight, polyester backing gives excellent strength to the belt that allows for use with liquid-based lubricants, but can be run in a wet or dry application. These attributes make the polyester cloth 966F cloth belt a good match for projects that require an equally durable abrasive belt.The Science of 3M™ Precision Shaped Grain
3M™ Cubitron II™ Cloth Belt 966F's precision shaped grain (PSG) is a major advancement in abrasive technology. PSG is a ceramic mineral designed using a proprietary process to enhance toughness and hardness of the grain. 3M scientists then went one step further and precisely engineered the mineral to form uniform triangular shaped grains that continually fracture into super-sharp points and edges that slice through the substrate, rather than gouging or "plowing" like conventional abrasives. PSG stays cooler and sharper, and lasts longer than conventional abrasives.Get the Belt You Need
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 industrial belt sanders. Wider belts are used with wide belt sanders for flat finishing—to remove and smooth rough cut metal sheets, slabs or add a grain pattern to stainless steel sheets. Medium-width belts are generally used on a backstand for weld removal or for removing casting gate.
