6 In. x 48 In. Sanding Belts feature Ceramic grains coated on premium Y-weight poly/cotton backing and fastened into a belt using a bi-directional, high strength butt joint. These 6x48 ceramic belts are close coat, resin on resin bonded which provides superior grain retention and reduces loading compared to other bonding methods. These ceramic belts also feature a grinding aid to further reduce loading and prevent heat buildup during use. 6 inch by 48 inch ceramic sanding belts are among the highest quality and longest lasting belts out there today due to their self sharpening and cool running capabilities. Ceramic grains have a fracturing characteristic which continually exposes new sharp edges to provide consistency throughout the useful life of the belt. Additionally, ceramic belts grind cooler, than other abrasive belts which protects the work piece as well as the belt itself, further lengthening the life of the belt. Ceramic belts are ideal for use on nearly any metal but are specifically useful on metals which are heat sensitive or susceptible to contamination such as stainless steel, nickel alloys or cobalt alloys. Ceramic belts are also suitable for wood, fiberglass, or plastics, these belts can last between 50% and 200% longer than the same belt made with zirconia or other abrasive grain. These 6" x 48" red ceramic belts are made to be used on a 6x48 belt sander, backstand grinder, knife belt sander, or 6x48 combo sander and are available in 36 grit, 40 grit, 60 grit, 80 grit, and 120 grit.
