Tough, Flexible and Heat Resistant
Our 3M™ Cloth Belt 966F features an anti-friction resin coating, which helps the abrasive run cool during low and moderate pressure applications, and helps prevent surface discoloration. The semi-flexible, water resistant Y-weight, polyester backing gives excellent strength and flexibility to the belt, and allows for use with liquid-based lubricants. These attributes make Cloth Belt 966F a good match for projects that require an equally durable and malleable abrasive belt.
3M™ Ceramic Grain
Cloth Belt 966F is engineered using 3M™ ceramic grain, which is engineered to cut fast and handle intense heat and stress applications. Ceramic abrasives are engineered to fracture frequently for a super-fast cut and can handle intense heat and stress applications. Ceramic grain surpasses aluminum oxide abrasives in cut-rate and durability and makes our 3M™ Cloth Belt 966F an excellent choice for refining, dimensioning, stock removal, scale removal and weld leveling.
Get the Belt You Need
Abrasive belts come in many different widths and lengths and are used on a variety of different belt sanding tools for many different metalworking applications. 3M offers a broad selection of belts to fit most industrial belt sanders. Wider belts are used with wide belt sanders for flat finishingto smooth rough cut edges of metal sheets, or add a grain pattern to stainless steel sheets. Medium-width belts are generally used on a backstand for weld removal or on a feed-thru style flat finisher for imparting a finish on sheets or coils. Narrow belts can be used on backstands for grinding and finishing, or on file tools to access right angle corners for finishing.
