3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 966F is our cloth belt featuring precision shaped grain attached to a water resistant, Z & Y-weight polyester cloth backing.
3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 966F is designed to provide efficient surface finishing on a variety of metals including stainless steel, titanium and other high nickel alloys. Our cloth belts feature precision shaped grain that is ideal for moderate pressure applications. The water resistant Z and Y-weight, polyester backing gives excellent strength to the belt that allows for use with liquid-based lubricants, but can be run in a wet or dry applications. These attributes make the polyester cloth 966F cloth belt a good match for projects that require an equally durable abrasive belt. The science of 3M™ Precision Shaped Grain Precision Shaped Grain signifies a major advancement in abrasive technology. PSG is a ceramic mineral design using a proprietary process to enhance toughness and hardness of the grain. 3M scientists then went one step further and precisely engineered the mineral to form uniform triangular shaped grains that continually fracture into super-sharp points and edges that slice through the substrate, rather than gouging or ‘ploughing’ like conventional abrasives. PSG creates a super-fast cut and lessens heat build-up in the workpiece, reducing heat related stress cracks and discolouration. Moreover, because PSG stays cooler and sharper, it lasts longer than conventional abrasives.

Wider belts are used with wide belt sanders for flat finishing—to remove and smooth rough cut metal sheets, slabs or add a grain pattern to stainless steel sheets. Medium-width belts are generally used on a backstand for weld removal or for removing casting gate.
