Industrial Abrasive Tools, What Are They?
The preparation of parts for production or assembly is done by specialty abrasive tools. They are either driven by a sander or grinder or are handheld tools and can come in a variety of widths, lengths, shapes, and sizes depending on the purpose. Some purposes include:
- Surface preparation
- Metal cutting
- Removal of debris, dirt, or other material
We offer a wide selection of specification-customized industrial abrasive substrates including:
- Rayon/Lyocell backings
- Polycotton backings
- PET backings
- PET knit/woven substrates
- Cotton backings
- Nylon/Poly screens
Types of Abrasive Tools
Sanding Belt: A sanding belt is an abrasive loop of material most often used to grind down wood, as well as other ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Belt sanders are the best choice for obtaining a smooth and level finish over a long length of material.
Sanding/Grinding Disc: A sanding or grinding disc is a circular disc of abrasive grit paper. They are best used to remove paint or rust corrosion and can be washed and reused.
Wheel Brush: A wheel brush is a type of wire brush that is typically used to remove rust, paint, or welding splatter. They either come in a cup or end style and allows for more aggressive material removal when knotted. Use a wheel brush when it comes to hard-to-reach places.
Handy/Utility Rolls: These rolls are long and skinny strips of sandpaper that you can tear to size. The smaller size of these rolls makes them great for general-purpose metalworking and hard-to-grind materials like stainless steel or cast iron, with aluminum oxide.
Abrasive Materials Safety Tips
- Wear Proper PPE. This includes gloves, eye protection, ear protection, and respiratory protection for the grade of what you are abrading.
- Avoid loose clothing where possible as to not get caught in the tools.
- Stay clear of sparks and be aware of where your sparks are flying in relation to other people.
- Grind in well-ventilated areas.
- Avoid working near flammable materials.
- Stop and refasten your tools immediately if they vibrate or seem loose.
