- 3M™ Ceramic Abrasive Grain is engineered for exceptional durability and cutting capability on carbon steel and tool steels to help increase productivity
- Durable ceramic grain belt lasts longer than aluminum oxide belts, producing more parts per belt and requiring fewer belt changes
- Heavyweight cloth backing stands up to tough grinding applications
- Water resistant polyester blend supports wet or dry applications, reducing materials costs
- Durable resin bond resists deterioration from heat, extending the life of the belt
3M™ Cloth Belt 963G features high-performing 3M™ Ceramic Abrasive Grain on a durable polyester blend backing to give you outstanding durability and cutting efficiency in high pressure applications on carbon steel, tool steels, and hardwoods.
3M™ Cloth Belt 963G can run wet or dry and offers significant productivity gains for applications such as rapid stock removal, grinding, blending on steel, and high pressure stock removal on wood. We recommend this belt for wet or dry grinding of carbon and tool steel in medium to high pressure applications such as rapid grinding systems or coated abrasive machining applications. The heavyweight backing supports demanding applications and a consistent cut-rate, and is resin-bonded to withstand high heat and pressure.
Proprietary 3M™ Ceramic Abrasive Grain is a ceramic mineral chemically engineered with a unique "stay sharp" crystalline structure, which continually reveals fresh cutting edges on the surface of the work piece ensuring a sustained cut. The grain is formed using a proprietary process to enhance toughness and hardness of the grain, for long product life and significant productivity benefits. Abrasives made with 3M ceramic abrasive grain have outstanding durability and improved cutting efficiencies. These products have a long service life, cut exceptionally fast, and can stand up to high pressure production environments even on the toughest materials.
Abrasive belts come in many different widths and lengths and are used on a variety of different belt sanding tools for many different applications on both wood and metal. At 3M we offer a broad selection of belts to fit most any industrial belt sander. Wider belts are used with wide belt sanders to dimension or finish wood panels, smooth rough cut edges of metal sheets, or add a grain pattern to stainless steel sheets. Medium-width belts fit onto edge sanders for sanding flat, narrow surfaces such as panel edges; and narrow belts are used with portable belt sanders for sanding or blending wood pieces such as cabinet doors.
Belts come with various flexibilities and splices that join the belt ends. 3M™ Cloth Belt 963G has a film splice for added strength when grinding in high pressure applications. When greater flexibility may be needed to increase conformity or for a softer touch for finishing and blending, an L-flex provides more flexibility than the standard flex, and a fullflex belt is the most flexible.
