Product Description

Norton Metalite R228 durable, cotton-backed belts are a good choice for maintenance and repair operations where cutting action is more important that backing conformability, for example when sanding burrs off a flat or mildly curved surface.

Coated abrasives have individual abrasive grains spaced at a predetermined distance from one another. This is a closed-coat belt. A closed coat covers 100 percent of the surface with abrasive grains, for more stiffness and better surface finish than an equivalent open coat, where abrasive grit covers 50 to 70 percent of the surface. The cloth backing is stiffer, tougher, and thicker than a paper backing. Cloth resists tearing while bending and flexing during use. This belt features a resin bond. Resin bonds have good moisture resistance, are harder and less flexible than glue bonds, and have good heat resistance and grain retention. Resin bonds are useful for abrasive operations with high operating speeds, impact, and sudden loading, as the resin bond is strong.

Aluminum oxide is a widely used and versatile abrasive material. It is a tough, fracture- and wear-resistant grit that works well with a broad range of materials, from metals to wood. Aluminum oxide is more durable than silicon carbide and often used for material removal and finishing.

Abrasives are used for a variety of applications from shaping a part to fine finishing, depending on the grit size. Low grit numbers like 40 are coarse and are used for removing excess material and shaping a part. High grit numbers like 400 are fine and help to create a smooth surface finish.

Norton Abrasives manufactures a wide variety of sanding, grinding, and polishing abrasives, and has been located in the United States since 1885. In 1990, Saint-Gobain purchased Norton, keeping its manufacturing facilities and offices in the same location. Norton/Saint-Gobain has been recognized as a Global 100 Sustainable Company, as well as earning ISO 9000 and 14001 certification for quality and environmental management standards.

Part Number: 78072749887Grit Type: 50Overall Width: 8Number of Items: 10Overall Length: 107 Verified Purchase
I purchased 50 grit rather than 60 grit we normally use
because it was represented as a pack of 10 at a savings of over 90%. We received only 1 belt and upon contacting MSC, the supplier, we were told to contact Amazon who in turn told us to contact MSC ..... Have not followed up to date. We have installed the 50 grit belt and are w/o any back up when it fails.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably......
