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 makes the 3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 237AA special?
The 3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 237AA is designed to provide consistent finishes and long-lasting performance on a wide range of surfaces. Its unique micro-replication technology allows for precise control of abrasive processes, resulting in less heat buildup, longer belt life, and reduced processing time.
What type of applications is this belt best suited for?
This particular product is an A16 X-weight cloth belt that measures 6 inches by 132 inches with Film-lok technology. It’s suitable for metalworking applications such as grinding, sanding and finishing operations on stainless steel or other metals.
How many belts come in each case?
Each case includes 20 belts packed inside making it easier to manage your ordering process.
Is the Full-flex feature useful?
Absolutely! With its full-flex design flexibility you can get more use out of the entire surface which maximizes contact across complex profiles providing uniform wear throughout the lifespan of the abrasive lifecycle. The flexible construction also eliminates flat-spots commonly seen when applying pressure when starting/stopping operation leading better overall consistency during application.
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.
