3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 217EA uses proprietary microreplication technology in which micron-graded aluminum oxide particles are formed into tiny pyramids of abrasive mineral and then coated on a JE-weight rayon backing. As these pyramids wear, fresh, sharp mineral is continually exposed to produce a consistent cut and a predictable, fine finish.
- Microreplicated pyramids wear away to continually expose fresh mineral for a consistent cut throughout the life of the belt
- Flexible JE-weight cotton cloth backing flows over contoured surfaces for consistent finishing
- Consistency and long abrasive life make this belt great for use in robotic applications
- For intermediate finishing and fine polishing prior to plating or buffing
- Ideal for light pressure applications, allows abrasive to break down and maintain cut and produce consistent finishes
- Produces finer finishes than conventional coated abrasives
- Grinding aid helps prevent heat-related warping and discoloration

What is 3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 217EA?
3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 217EA is a high-performance abrasive belt designed to provide consistent finishes on various metal surfaces.
What is the size of this belt?
This specific product comes in the size of 2 inches by 96 inches, which makes it suitable for large scale projects.
How flexible is this abrasive belt?
The Full-flex feature in this product provides greater flexibility and conformability compared to traditional abrasive belts, enabling you to work on curved or contoured surfaces with ease.
How many belts does one case contain?
Each case contains 50 units of the A30 JE-weight variant of the Film-lok technology backed abrasives, providing ample supply for an extended period without needing frequent replacements.
. Can I use it wet but not submerged or does it have o be used dry only?
. You can use Trizact cloth belts either wet (with water) or dry depending on what works best for your application. Wet sanding prolongs the life span and helps prevent clogging while keeping heat buildup under control during applications requiring continuous contact with metallic surface.
The 3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 217EA 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, keeping fresh, sharp mineral cutting. Additionally, this belt features a grinding aid that helps prevent heat buildup, warping, and discoloration. The JE-weight, durable cloth backing provides control, conformability, and effective medium-pressure grinding. The resin bonded abrasive provides heat resistance and helps prevent delamination.Ideal for Robotic Finishing and Polishing
Robotic metal polishing requires a consistent, refined cut and long abrasive life. 3M™ Trizact™ abrasives can deliver near-mirror finishes while also providing the abrasive life that helps reduce changeouts and downtime in robotic cells. This maximizes the efficiency of the cell, allowing you to produce more parts per belt.Runs Smooth, Finishes Consistently
The film media splice minimizes "chatter marks" and ensures smooth running and consistent results. Proprietary Trizact™ abrasives produce a finer finish, achieve results faster, and last longer when compared to conventional abrasive products.
