Can you tell me something about Film-lok and Single-flex?
Film-lok is an attachment system unique to our brand - it securely attaches each sanding disc, ensuring easy installation and removal without damaging products. Also, Single-flex technology allows you to contour around workpieces more easily than with other highly durable belts.
In which industries do people use this kind of product?
It’s perfect for foundries, welding shops amongst others since it's created from rugged materials able to withstand various conditions effectively. Metalworkers often use these types of belts due to their incredible durability as well as industrial grade quality alongside its ability even on hard surfaces too!
3M™ Cloth Belt 577F is a versatile abrasive belt that is ideal for dimensioning parts, deburring, blending, and finishing castings and forgings made of aluminum, mild steel, and stainless steel or other exotic metal alloys. This belt is designed to reduce running temperatures and protect heat-sensitive alloys such as stainless steel, nickel alloys, and cobalt alloys. The grinding aid incorporated in the belt helps to reduce heat buildup, while the abrasive is firmly bonded to the backing with resin to maintain durability under high heat and pressure. The alumina zirconia abrasive fractures frequently to continually produce sharp points and deliver a faster cut-rate than aluminum oxide. This synthetic mineral was developed for heavy stock removal and high-pressure grinding.Sized to Suit Your Needs
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 any industrial belt sander. Wider belts are used with wide belt sanders and feed-through style flat finishers to smooth rough-cut edges of metal sheets or add a grain pattern to stainless steel sheets. Medium-width belts are generally used on a backstand for weld removal or for imparting a finish. Narrow belts can be used on file tools to access right angle corners for finishing.Applications
