  1. What is the 3M™ Cloth Belt 947D used for?

    The 3M™ Cloth Belt 947D is designed for heavy-duty sanding applications and gives high cut-rate performance with precise consistent finishes.

  2. How long are the belts of 3M™ Cloth Belt 947D, 80 X-weight, Film-lok?

    The belts measure about2-1/2 in x132 in which provides enough length to convey a more extensive range of grinding surfaces available.

  3. How flexible is the cloth belt material?

    The single-flex feature implies that the fabric lengthwise expansion allows bending. This modification helps achieve a smooth finish without any added pressure on your machine or device during use.

  4. Is it economical to buy them by the bulk case?

    Purchasing these abrasive products by cases might be economically advantageous and help prevent frequent trips to re-stock. One case contains fifty units at once making it more budget-friendly for commercial needs than buying only one unit at a time.

  5. Is attaching these cloths onto another hardware easy?

    With specific equipment such as Norton's Bear-Tex Rapid Strip Depressed Center Non-Woven Discs or other compatible backing pads using their integrated quick change system like Roloc; setting up should take less than two minutes even for debris removal applications.

Durable Abrasive Belt

The 3M™ Cloth Belt 947D is a high-quality abrasive belt that is perfect for a variety of applications. This belt features an anti-friction grinding aid that helps to keep the abrasive cool during moderate to high pressure applications. This grinding aid helps to prevent thermal damage to the belt and discoloration of the work piece surface. The semi-flexible X-weight backing of the Cloth Belt 947D makes it a great choice for projects that require an equally durable and malleable abrasive.

Blended Ceramic Grains

The 3M™ Cloth Belt 947D is engineered using blended ceramic abrasive, which enhances the toughness and hardness of the grain. Ceramic blend products feature aluminum oxide blended with ceramic grain for a harder, longer-lasting abrasive. Ceramic abrasives are engineered to fracture frequently for a super-fast cut and can handle intense heat and stress applications. The ceramic/aluminum oxide blend surpasses aluminum oxide abrasives in cut-rate and durability, making the 3M™ Cloth Belt 947D an excellent choice for refining, dimensioning, stock removal, scale removal, stroke sanding, and weld leveling.
