6" X 48" SANDING BELTS FOR WOOD OR METAL APPLICATIONS 

High-quality Aluminum Oxide, Silicon Carbide, and Zirconia belts are ideal for edge sanding, bevel grinding, and surface grinding. These materials come in a wide range of grits to compliment all sanding needs from stock removal to fine finishing on materials such as wood, plastic, aluminum, stainless or steel.

GUIDE ON HOW TO CHOOSE WHAT ABRASIVE MATERIAL TO BUY FOR YOUR 6" x 48" BELT SANDER:

ALUMINUM OXIDE - Aluminum oxide is one of the most cost effective and versatile wide belt sanding material's there is. You can use it on virtually any surface including wood, aluminum, stainless steel, steel & composites. Our premium cloth backed aluminum oxide belts are made using a blend of polyester and cotton which means these belts can be ran in any wet or dry application. For people that are sanding wood, we recommend you choose Aluminum oxide 95% of the time as Zirconia can often be too aggressive for a woodworking application and can tear into the wood or leave burn marks. For Metalworkers that cant decide on what material to buy, we mostly recommend zirconia in the coarse grits such as 24, 36, 40, 60, 80 120. Aluminum oxide for metal workers is a better option if you are simply worried about spending the least amount of money possible. 

ZIRCONIA - Zirconia sanding belts are a fantastic option for HEAVY stock removal and long life on either aluminum or stainless steel. If you are looking for a coarser sanding belt grit that will do some heavy lifting and do it in a hurry, you would probably be best suited for zirconia which is available in 24 grit, 36 grit, 40 grit, 50 grit, 60 grit, 80 grit, 100 grit & 120 grit. While we don't have all of these grits on our website, you can reach out to us and we can custom make any belt size in that grit for you. 

SILICONE CARBIDE - Silicon carbide belts are often chosen for its fine finishing and narrow scratch pattern properties. Silicon carbide grains are sharper and "narrower" in nature so the natural scratch pattern is much thinner than that of an aluminum oxide or zirconia sanding belt. This material tends to leave a better finish, but the cost is the longevity of the belt. These belts will not last as long but will give a great finish. Typically we find woodworkers or metalworkers like to go with a silicone carbide on the finer grits after the heavy stock removal has been done, such as 220 or 320 grit!
