How To Select Grits
Red Label Abrasives offers grits ranging from 24 grit all the way up to 800 grit. Choosing the right grit sequence for your project is critical to the outcome of your finished piece. Using the wrong grit or skipping grits in a sequence can result in an uneven finish, visible scratch patterns, or too much stock removal. Sometimes you can still achieve a great finish skipping grits, but it takes more time and energy to do so (and we know that time is money).
Every maker has their own preferred grit progression. We’ve outlined the different grit ranges and their uses below, so that you can determine which grits you may want to add to your bundle.
Coarse (P8-P80): Coarse grits are commonly used for initial stock removal and the stripping of paints and varnishes.
Medium (P100-P220): Medium grits are used for final shaping, prepping materials for paints and stains, honing, and sharpening.
Fine (P240+): Fine grits are used for both sharpening and polishing.
Types Of Belts Available To Bundle
In addition to our popular standard EdgeCore ceramic belts, you can also add specialty belts to your bundle. Below is an overview of the specialty belts you can add to your bundle along with their uses.
EdgeCore Ceramic Belts: Thanks to advanced abrasive technology, our newest ceramic material delivers maximum cut rate, longevity, and cooler grinding temps. Ideal for high pressure grinding, EdgeCore ceramic micro-fractures during use, continuously revealing fresh abrasive grain. The versatility of our EdgeCore belts make them a great choice for knife makers, blacksmiths, welders, or anyone working with metals.
EdgeCore Flex Ceramic Belts: Our EdgeCore Flex Ceramic Belts contain the same great cut rate and longevity you’ve come to expect from our standard EdgeCore belts. However, they also have a flexible backing. The flexible backing allows the belt to conform to the surface of the workpiece. This makes flex belts ideal for sanding curved surfaces. These belts can easily create a smooth, uniformed finish on a curved surface.
Aluminum Oxide J Flex Cotton Belts: Our aluminum oxide J flex belts are produced with a durable and lightweight J-weight cloth backing. These belts are designed specifically for metal sanding, but they can also be used for edge work on profiling handles.
Scalloped Aluminum Oxide J Flex CottonBelts: Scalloped belts possess the distinguished feature of having wavy edges as opposed to straight edges. The curved edges of the belt allow you to more easily sand curved edges without accidentally digging into the workpiece. Scalloped belts are often used to remove burrs from knife edges and sand the curves of knife handles.
Surface Conditioning Belts: Surface conditioning belts are non-woven belts that are commonly used for deburring, cleaning, blending, and contouring on irregular aluminum, stainless steel or steel surfaces. There technically isn’t grit on the belt, so belts aren’t categorized by grit. Coarse is equivalent to P120-P150. Medium is equivalent to P150-P180. Fine is equivalent to P240-P280 and super fine is equivalent to P1000-P2000.
