Our premium-quality industrial-grade belts are long-lasting and produce a great finish for steel, stainless steel, and aluminum surfaces.
Non-woven belts aren’t rated by grit, because there technically isn’t any grit on the belt. Nevertheless, you can expect certain surface conditioning belts to work similar to certain grit sizes. Below are the grit equivalents of our surface conditioning belts.
Non-woven belts and surface conditioning belts are terms used interchangeably that refer to the same type of belt. Surface conditioning or non-woven belts are used to deburr, clean, blend, and finish contours, edges on irregular aluminum, stainless steel, or steel surfaces.
Surface conditioning belts are commonly used in knife making to achieve an even, satin finish on blades. You’ll end up saving a lot of time over trying to hand sand a mirror finish.
If you’re using surface conditioning belts for the first time, you’ll want to keep a few things in mind. First, you’ll want to use light to medium pressure with these belts. The coarse belts especially require light pressure. If you apply too much pressure, you’ll remove too much material too fast. You’ll also want to follow a proper grit sequence from coarse to medium to fin and super fine.
