3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 237AA uses proprietary microreplication technology by 3M where micron-graded aluminum oxide particles are formed into tiny pyramids of abrasive mineral and then coated on an X weight cloth backing. As these pyramids wear, fresh, sharp mineral is continually exposed to produce a consistent cut and a predictable, fine finish.
- Self-sharpening pyramids start sharp, stay sharp, and run cooler than conventional abrasives
- Flexible backing for consistent finish over contours
- Three-dimensional design enables very consistent finishes throughout the abrasive life in robotic applications
- For intermediate finishing and fine polishing prior to plating or buffing
- Ideal for intermediate finishing and fine polishing prior to plating or buffing
- Produces finer finishes than conventional electrostatically coated abrasives
What is the size of 3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 237AA, A6 X-weight, 1/2 in x 30 in, Film-lok, Full-flex, and how many come in a case?
The size of 3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 237AA is 1/2 inch by 30 inches with a film-lok back and full-flex construction. There are two hundred (200) belts that come in each case.
Can this belt be used for metal grinding or cutting?
No, this belt is best used for finishing applications such as sanding and polishing on hard surfaces like wood or composites. For metal grinding/cutting we have other abrasive solutions available that might suit your needs better.
What grit does the A6 grade correspond to on the abrasive scale?
The A6 grade corresponds to around P1500-P2000 on the abrasive grit scale. It's designed for finer sanding/polishing tasks where precision finish matters more which usually follows up coarser abrasives used earlier during surface preparation stage.
The 3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 237AA is designed to provide consistent finishes on hard metals such as carbon and stainless steel. The abrasive and resin structure is formulated to break down under medium pressure and keep fresh, sharp mineral cutting. The belt also features a grinding aid that helps prevent heat buildup, warping, and discoloration. The X-weight, durable cloth backing helps provide control, conformability, and effective medium-pressure grinding. The resin bonded abrasive gives you greater heat resistance and helps prevent delamination.Runs Smooth, Finishes Consistently
The belt uses a Film Media Splice, a strong secure bond joining the belt ends, consisting of a thin film-joining media that minimizes "chatter marks," ensures a smooth running belt, and consistent finishing results. Proprietary Trizact™ abrasives produce a finer finish, achieve results faster, and last longer when compared to conventional abrasive products.Ideal for Robotic Finishing and Polishing
3M™ Trizact™ abrasives can consistently deliver near-mirror finishes while also delivering the abrasive life that helps reduce changeouts and downtime in robotic cells. This helps maximize the efficiency of the cell, allowing you to produce more parts per belt. Robotic metal polishing demands the most consistent, refined cut and long abrasive life.The Science of Flawless Finishes
3M™ Trizact™ belts start sharp and stay sharp, resulting in more predictable finishes and improved, consistent quality. They can last up to five times longer than conventional belts and provide precise finish control such that operators can reduce grade sequences, requiring fewer process steps and fewer abrasive products. Three-dimensional structures uniformly distributed over the entire surface of 3M™ Trizact™ abrasives ensure consistent performance and eliminate part to part variation.
