Grit Equivalents Of Our Surface Conditioning Belts
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 equivelants of our surface conditioning belts.
- Coarse (Brown) is equivalent to P120-P150
- Medium (Maroon) is equivalent to P150-P180
- Fine (Blue) is equivalent to P240-P280
- Super Fine (Grey) is equivalent to P1000-P2000
What Are Surface Conditioning Belts & What Are They Used For?
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.
What Can Surface Conditioning Belts Be Used On?
Surface conditioning belts can be used on both airfile belt sanders and conventional belt sanders. Our 2 x 72 non-woven belts won’t fit any airfile sanders, but they will fit any conventional 2 x 72 sanders, including the Brodbeck Ironworks grinders, KMG Industrial Grinder, Reeder Grinders, Hardcore Belt Grinder, Wilton Square Wheel Grinder, and more.
