Aluminum Oxide Sanding Belts
The enduring sharpness of aluminum oxide particles makes our sanding belts an excellent abrasive for both wood and metal. Abrasive particles are bonded to a poly/cotton or a cotton cloth backing with resin over resin, which means a longer-wearing belt. Our belts have a butt joint and can be run in either direction. Open coat aluminum oxide resists loading. Available in grits 36 - 400.
These PSA discs are composed of aluminum oxide grains, resin-bonded to heavy “X” weight cloth for maximum life and stability. Paper PSA discs are also available in a Gold “C” weight paper backing. Stearate Discs offer extended use on soft woods or on finishes where most materials might load and cease to perform. Multiple styles, sizes and grits available.
Hook & Loop Discs
Hook & Loop discs are semi-open coat aluminum oxide sanding pads with a hook and loop (Velcro) backing. Stearate aluminum oxide is resistant to loading. Quick change, long life - can be removed and reinstalled many times. Sanding with cushion on back side of discs allows heat to escape. Superior gripping means they won't slip once on the pad. Multiple styles, sizes and grits available.

Duplex Wheels are made with alternating flaps of abrasive cloth and non-woven finishing material. They provide some stock removal while leaving a brushed finish. One to one interleaf design. Available mounted with a ¼” shank or with a 1” arbor hole.
Flap Wheels are excellent for delivering a consistent uniform finish on large work pieces. These sanding wheels consist of aluminum oxide cloth flaps with 5/8" or 1" arbor holes. Flap Wheels are typically mounted on bench grinder type tools. Mounted Flap Wheels have a 1/4" mandrel and are great for usage in tight areas, tubes, and narrow curves for general applications such as cleaning, blending and surface preparation. The flaps are arranged like a fan around the shaft of the tool, this provides a consistent cutting action, maximum performance and long life.
