The Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning GP Belt saves time preparing workpieces for final finishes and coatings by performing one-step prep work. This multi-purpose, resin-reinforced belt works with all types of metal and is load-resistant, making it a good choice for aluminum and other soft metals. It offers reliable results on flat surfaces and some edgework.
Spring-like nature of the fibers respond to the part and effectively remove burrs
General Purpose (GP) Material Offers Consistent Cut and Uniform Finish
Featuring a more compact structure of non-woven fibers than Buff & Blend products, our Standard Abrasives™ Surface Conditioning GP Belt is engineered to provide a consistent cut-rate while producing a uniform finish. Constructed of resin-reinforced non-woven fibers, this belt resists loading and minimizes under-cutting or gouging of the workpiece.
Standard Abrasives™ GP Surface Conditioning Belts (formerly BriteRite™) are made of a tough but flexible nylon mesh that conforms to irregularities on the workpiece. A woven fabric (scrim) embedded in the nylon structure provides additional strength and durability. This helps extend the life of the belt and allows for prolonged use on ferrous materials or steel.
The Outstanding Performance of Surface Conditioning Material
Surface conditioning products have a non-woven construction in which fiber strands, resin, and abrasive mineral form a thick, open web or mesh. The spring-like nature of the fibers responds to the part and effectively removes unwanted burrs, soils and contaminants while maintaining the geometry of the workpiece, which in turn reduces rework and boosts productivity. Gaps in the web allow heat and swarf to escape, prolonging the performance of the abrasive. Fibers in the web continually break down with use to reveal fresh mineral for exceptional consistency, increased cut performance and extended service life.
Aluminum Oxide for Metals and Composites
The belt fibers are overlaid with aluminum oxide abrasive. Aluminum oxide belts are a good match for operators who desire an all-purpose versatility and economy. The mineral cuts fast while blending and deburring and can be used for applications on ferrous and non-ferrous metals and composites.
