Product Description

2" x 72" Zirconia Sanding Belt

Name: 2" x 72" Zirconia Sanding Belt
Description: Zirconia alumina 2” x 72” Sanding Belt features premium zirconia grains, fully resin bonded to a strong x-weight polyester backing offering a sturdy but flexible belt, that can withstand heat and thrives in high pressure grinding applications. These belts are extremely versatile; the premium dense zirconia grains on each 2” x 72” inch wide sanding belt were formulated for aggressive and heavy stock removal applications while the open coated characteristic allows it to grind on softer materials without loading. Due to the self-sharpening properties of zirconia, it will cut faster and more consistently for a longer duration of time than aluminum oxide alternatives. The zirconia grains can last 2-3 times longer than aluminum oxide grains on belts when being used for heavy-duty, aggressive applications. The 2” x 72” Zirconia belts can be run wet or dry and are available in 36 grit, 40 grit, 60 grit, 80 grit, and 120 grit. These belts are designed to be used on a  Portable Belt Sander, Benchstand Grinder, Backstand Belt Grinder, Knife Belt Sanders. MADE IN THE USA. 
Other Features:
  • Bi-Directional - the belt can be run in either direction.
  • Open Coated - prevents material loading on the belt for longer usage between cleanings.
  • Wet-Dry Application - can be used both wet or dry
Suitable For: Wood, Stainless Steel, Unalloyed Steel, Non Ferrous metals such as Carbon Steel, Aluminum, Brass, Bronze, and Copper.

    Grinding belts

    They are the best belts I've ever use.
    They last longer than a ceramic belt.

    Once again, I have nothing to compare this belt with.

    It met my expectations. Therefore, I give it 4 thumbs up.

    Nice heavy backing. Great for hogging off material and grinding flats quickly. Highly recommended
