Material Types For Industrial Abrasive Applications
Ceramic, Trizact, and Zirconia Industrial Abrasive Belts
Industrial abrasive belts are available in a wide variety of different materials for industrial polishing, shaping, and finishing of different types of base metals. Waters Industrial currently inventories a multitude of different abrasive belts in popular materials such as:
Aluminum oxide abrasive belts are commonly used for both wood and metal, and are the most popular type of industrial abrasive. It comes in different grits, and features a cloth backing combined with an aluminum oxide flaked texture.
Ceramic abrasive belts are rapidly growing in popularity in the world of metal finishing. Their hard grain gives the user an increased product life compared to other popular abrasive materials. Ceramic belts are perfect for steel, aluminum, cast iron, and carbon steel. Ceramic abrasives are also great for deburring welds and finishing imperfections.
Trizact abrasives are a modern industrial abrasive that are designed to promote consistent, even wear for detailed finishes on fragile or intricate metal components. They consist of pyramid shaped structures that allow for even cuts and easy removal of imperfections. They are frequently used by jewelers, but can also be used to fine-tune a multitude of different industrial metals as well including stainless steel, nickel, and cobalt.
Zirconia abrasive belts are designed for heavy duty metal shaping, polishing, grinding, and deburring. It features a resin over resin bonding with a stretch resistant, waterproof cloth backing. Zirconia is great for reducing friction, making it ideal for temperature sensitive metals. Zirconia abrasives are commonly used on stainless steel, high nickel alloys, and aluminum.
