Red Label Abrasives is an American abrasive manufacturer that has been producing sanding rolls for over 35 years. Our abrasives are produced to be industrial-grade. Our goal is to provide you with premium quality sanding rolls at some of the most affordable prices on the web. We produce sanding rolls in a variety of sizes ranging from 1” X 50 YD all the way up to 6” x 50’. If you don’t see the size you’re looking for, we may be able to custom-manufacture the size you need. You can reach out to our abrasive technicians to request a roll in a different size.
Red Label Abrasives manufactures sanding rolls with three different types of grain options. The best abrasive grain to choose is going to depend on your use case.
You can learn more about the differences between abrasive grains on ourAbrasives 101 page. If you’re having trouble figuring out which abrasive gain you need, our abrasive technicians would also be more than happy to assist you.
Our sanding rolls are manufactured with two different types of backings. We offer polyester backings and felt backings. The felt backings are designed to be used for hook and loop drum sanders. If you have a hook and loop (velcro) drum, these will wrap and stick right to the drum. For equipment that doesn’t use hook and loop technology, we use polyester, because it’s both flexible and durable.
Our sanding rolls are primarily used to make DIY drum sanding strips for drum sanders. You can buy pre-cut drum sander strips, but you’ll be paying a premium for them if you do. Cutting your own drum sander strips could save you as much as $20 or more each time you need to change out the abrasive on your drum sander.Cutting your own drum sanding strips from sanding rolls is a fairly easy process and well-worth the money you save.
In addition to drum sanding rolls, we also sell shop rolls. Our shop rolls are often used on dispensers in shop environments and cut as needed for hand sanding. They are designed for dry sanding purposes and work well for hand sanding metal and wood. The backing is flexible enough for sanding edges and contours while remaining durable enough for metal finishing.
