Product Description

6" x 48" Premium Aluminum Oxide Sanding Belt

Name: 6x48 Aluminum Oxide Sanding Belts
Description: 6 In. x 48 In. Sanding Belts feature aluminum oxide grains coated on premium X-weight poly/cotton backing and fastened into a belt using a bi-directional, high strength butt joint. These 6x48 A/O belts are close coat, resin on resin bonded which provides superior grain retention and reduces loading compared to other bonding methods. Aluminum Oxide grains provide a uniform finish and consistent performance on a wide range of materials including ferrous metals, high-tensile materials and wood.

    6x48 Sanding Belt

    Posted by Richard Sittler on May 10th 2020

    I am more than pleased with this belt and the service received from Empire Abrasives. Very quick turnaround from order to receipt. I was impressed with the splice joint of the belt and it tracks extremely well. This is the first time I have ordered from Empire Abrasives but they will be my "go-to" business from here on out. Prices are reasonable and service is second to none.

    Good product, good value.

    The belts arrived quickly after my order was placed. I have used one of the four I ordered, and it tracks well, and after an hour of use, it still working like new. The price for the product, even when shipping was factored in, was better than I could obtain locally. I am quite pleased, and will order here again.
