- Great multi-purpose belt, ideal for cleaning, finishing, blending and deburring
- Nylon film backing is stretch resistant for close, ongoing cutting action
- The film backed belts work great on stroke sanders when reduced friction on the back of the belt is desired
- Gaps between nylon fibers allow debris to escape, helping to reduce loading
- Fibers break down gradually to reveal fresh mineral, producing consistent cuts
- Available in a range of grades, minerals and converted forms
Scotch Brite™ Surface Conditioning Film Backed Belt is a non-woven belt used for cleaning, finishing, blending and deburring applications. The smooth, tough, stretch-resistant nylon film backing works well with platens or when reduced friction is required.
The non-woven material combined with abrasive grain is an ideal way to add a great finish
Multi-Purpose Belt Great for Tackling Multiple Applications
Working on flat parts especially — requires a belt that will abrade the surface closely. Our Scotch Brite™ Surface Conditioning Film Backed Belt was designed to do just that. The nylon-backed belt has a reduced friction backing and is low stretch, so it's unlikely to yield or stretch when run. This belt backing works well when the standard scrim belts stretch and fall off the machine.
Versatile Belt Options
One of the best benefits of our Scotch Brite™ Surface Conditioning Film Backed Belt is its versatility. Offered in a range of minerals, grades and converted forms, you're likely to find the right match for your application. Choose between silicon carbide or aluminum oxide mineral. Aluminum Oxide is available in coarse (CRS), very fine (VFN), and medium (MED) grades. Silicon carbide is available in super fine (SFN), very fine (VFN), and medium (MED) grades. Aluminum oxide is a synthetic mineral known for its sharp cut, durability and long life. Silicon carbide tends to break down faster than aluminum oxide but will also produce a finer finish.
The Many Benefits of Scotch Brite™ Belts
Available in narrow, wide and standard sizes, this belt is commonly run on a belt sander. Given their narrow widths, narrow belts tend to be a good match for workpieces with narrow areas and nooks and crannies, like lobes on a crankshaft or camshaft. Conversely, wide belts are a good match for larger workpieces like stamped parts, sheet metal parts, or dies. Independent of belt chosen, operators can rely on consistent performance; it's what they've come to expect from our Scotch-Brite™ abrasives. Nonwoven technology makes our Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives — and belts — unique. A combination of fiber strands, resin, and abrasive mineral forms a thick, open web.
The spring-like nature of the fibers responds to contours 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 swarf to escape, so debris does not clog the mineral. Fibers in the web continually break down with use to reveal fresh mineral for fast cut, long life and consistent results — part after part.
