When you’re shopping for abrasives online, you’ll find that there are a wide variety of ready-made, off-the-shelf products available and, depending on the manufacturer, most are good quality. However, there are some projects that call for a more tailored approach and an equally customized abrasive solution.
While belt, drum, and disc sanders are now manufactured in an array of standard sizes, older machines or custom-built machines can have uncommon size requirements that many manufacturers can’t or won’t meet. Custom belts are also very popular with woodworkers who often need custom sizes for wide belt machines. Furthermore, industrial machines often require custom abrasives as well.
At Red Label Abrasives, we can custom manufacture abrasives to meet any unique size requirement. We have been producing premium sanding belts, discs, and rolls for hobbyist makers and businesses of all sizes for over 35 years and enjoy an industry-wide reputation for the highest-quality craftsmanship and materials.

Paper-backed abrasives, which typically include aluminum oxide and silicon carbide, are lower cost and deliver an even cut for finer grits and processes, but are not durable unless infused with a material like latex. For premium abrasive products, you’re looking at a cloth or polyester backing for superior longevity and strength.
Other backing options include:
