From the Manufacturer
The 3M™ Utility Cloth Roll 211K provides a light-weight cloth sandpaper used for hand sanding in many different applications, where the desired length of strip can be torn from the roll for a specific application. Constructed with aluminum oxide abrasive, these rolls come in a range of grades for common applications such as deburring, blending and repairing metal finishes, rust or other contaminant removal, and surface preparation for paints and coatings. This abrasive can be used on ferrous and non-ferrous metals, wood, and plastic.
The light J-weight cloth backing provides the flexibility needed to conform to circular edges, angles, or other contours. It remains durable even when bent or rolled, without tearing or shelling. On the other hand, the cloth can be torn by hand when a smaller piece is needed, without compromising the sanding surface.
Aluminum oxide is a popular choice among industrial professionals because of its fast cut-rate and long life. This mineral makes a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges, whereas traditional natural abrasives dull more quickly. Due to its fast cut-rate, hardness, and strength, it is widely used in grinding applications in addition to sanding and finishing applications. Aluminum oxide is suitable for a wide variety of materials in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys.
The sanding surface is closed-coat, meaning that the abrasive mineral covers 100% of the sanding surface, for maximum cutting efficiency.
