3M™ Cloth Roll 947D is an abrasive sanding cloth used to create abrasive belts and rolls for metalworking. It is constructed on an X-weight cloth backing that features closed coat construction for excellent sanding action. The blended ceramic abrasive grains and flexible backing make this cloth ideal for product applications such as metal surface finishing and stock removal.
3M™ Cloth Roll 947D is used to create abrasive belts and rolls best suited for metal sanding and finishing thanks to its durability and fast-cutting abrasive material. Its flexible, X-weight cloth backing provides smooth operation and durability that can conform to the shape of contoured parts for consistent finishing. The abrasive side features closed coat mineral construction for finishing and sanding on steel, stainless steel and other types of metals.
Blended Ceramic Grains
3M™ Cloth Roll 947D is engineered using 3M™ ceramic materials, which enhance the toughness and hardness of the grain. Ceramic blend products feature aluminum oxide blended with ceramic grain for a harder, longer-lasting abrasive. Perfect for stock removal, ceramic abrasives are engineered to fracture frequently for a super-fast cut that can handle heat and most grinding applications. Ceramic/aluminum oxide blend surpasses aluminum oxide abrasives in cut-rate and durability and makes abrasives made from 3M™ Cloth 947D an excellent choice for light to moderate stock removal and surface preparation.
Heat Resistant and Fast Cutting
This abrasive cloth also uses resin bonding which is specially designed to resist thermal and chemical deterioration, which can occur during sanding. The resin bond is also very tough and excellent for precision work on all types of metals. This also allows for fast sanding and a high cut-rate. Closed coat construction features a dense spread of abrasive grains across the surface of the cloth. This design cuts fast and is ideal for light deburring or producing a grain pattern for a consistent finish.
