Why Choose An Aluminum Oxide Belt?
Aluminum oxide is considered the workhorse grain of the abrasive industry. It is the most popular abrasive grain because it is both low-cost and effective at removing material. Aluminum oxide is highly friable - the grain fragments with use to provide a sharp cutting surface throughout the lifespan of the belt. Aluminum oxide is a great choice for general use applications. Open coat aluminum oxide belts are very popular amongst woodworkers.
Open Coat Vs. Closed Coat Aluminum Oxide
Aluminum oxide belts are available in two different coatings: open and closed coat. The coating refers to how much of a belt’s surface is covered with abrasive grains. Approximately 50-70% of a belt’s surface is covered with abrasive grains for open coat belts. On the other hand, 90-95% of the belt’s surface is covered with abrasive grains for closed coat belts.
Closed coat aluminum oxide belts cut more aggressively and are designed to sand hard and dense materials like steel and other metals. Open coat aluminum oxide is designed for softer materials and is commonly used for woodworking applications. The additional space between grains allows for more air flow and reduces the likelihood that sanding residue will get stuck between the grains.
These 6x89” sanding belts are open coat aluminum oxide. If you’re looking to sand metal, we’d recommend our closed coat 6x89” aluminum oxide sanding belts.
