Product Features

  • Sanding belt is compatible with portable belt sanders
  • Bi-directional belt splice allows the belt to run in both directions, which simplifies mounting and maximizes sanding life
  • Aluminum oxide grit is a common choice for general-purpose grinding of wood, metal, fiberglass, and plastic, and is more durable than silicon carbide grit
  • Open coat abrasive grains cover 50 to 75 percent of the surface to reduce clogging and promote flexibility for abrading difficult-to-sand materials
  • X-weight cloth backing is flexible and lightweight, strong enough to carry coarse grits, and is more durable and tear resistant than paper backing

Product Description

The Norton sanding belt for portable belt sanders is suitable for general-purpose grinding of wood, metal, fiberglass, and plastic. The bi-directional belt splice allows the belt to run in both directions to simplify mounting and maximize sanding life. The aluminum oxide grit is one of the most common choices for general-purpose grinding, and is more durable than silicon carbide grit. The belt has an open coat, which resists clogging and promotes flexibility. Open coat abrasives produce a rougher finish when abrading difficult-to-sand materials because the abrasive grains are spaced farther apart than they are on a closed coat product. Cloth backing withstands repeated flexing for maximum contouring to odd shapes and corners, and is more durable and tear-resistant than paper backing. The backing of this belt is made from X-weight cloth backing, which is a flexible and lightweight material that is strong enough to carry coarse grits.

Recommended Grit Sizes

120 grit (fine) For surface preparation before applying a stain, primer, or sealer
80 grit (medium) For light sanding of surfaces or moderate removal of rust or coatings
50 grit (coarse) For heavy sanding and stripping
36 grit (extra coarse) For heavy material removal and abrasive planing

Coated abrasives have individual abrasive grains spaced at a predetermined distance from one another. They are used for a variety of applications — from shaping a part to fine finishing, depending on grit size. Low grit numbers such as 40 are coarse and are used for removing excess material and shaping a part. High grit numbers such as 400 are rated as fine and help create a smooth surface finish. Closed coat abrasives are 100 percent covered with abrasive grains, which extends the abrasive's life, maximizes material removal, and achieves finer finishes on metals and hard materials than an open coat. Closed coats are only recommended for use with non-clogging materials. For open coat abrasives, 50 to 75 percent of the surface is evenly covered, which provides a rougher finish because the abrasive grains are spaced farther apart than on a fully coated product. The gritless spaces promote flexibility and resist clogging when abrading difficult-to-sand materials. The flexibility or rigidity of the abrasive product is also affected by the choice of backing material (either paper, cloth, or fiber). Paper backing, the most flexible backing option, contours to the workpiece and delivers a more consistent finish than fiber or cloth backings. Paper backings are categorized by weight from lightest to heaviest (A- to F-weight respectively). Cloth backings are slightly more rigid, durable, and tear resistant than paper backing, but can still withstand repeated flexing. Cloth backing is categorized by weight from lightest to heaviest (J-, X-, Y-, and H-weight respectively). Fiber backing is the strongest and most rigid backing option, and is recommended for aggressive material removal.

Norton Abrasives manufactures sanding, grinding, and polishing abrasives. The company, founded in 1885, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards 9000 and 14001 for quality and environmental management.

I work exclusively with hardwood slabs that I harvest locally. Black walnut, cherry, maple and sycamore. These are all rough cut when they come into my studio. I have used belts from Lowes and Menards. These belts are exceptional in their durabilty and cutting. I run them in a porter cable sander, which is a beast and have yet to tear up a belt. If you want a belt that will make your job faster and easier, these are the one to buy. Norton is the only brand I now use. Norton's 180 and 320 are outstanding!!

I've used makita 3" belt sander over 4 years and used all kinds of 3x18" sand belt from Lowe's, Home Depot, and internet companies. I've noticed Norton sand belt performs best. It sands faster and last longer than any other brands. 50-grit belt removes material so fast, you have to be real careful not to remove too much. 120-grit belts smooth the surface very quickly without leaving sanding mark. If you use 220-grit with palm sander, the surface would be perfect.
This one priced a little higher than others but it definitely worth it. Most disappointing brand was sand belt from 3M company.

Very pleased with performance and durability. Also purchased the 3M Purple Regalite sanding belts for the same project to both compare them. I used them on a quite large porch sanding project (well over 500 sq-ft of heavy sanding), and thought they were comparable and both worth the money over cheaper belts. I haven't used lots of brands but always try to buy quality products to make the jobs go faster with less effort. I am sure that paper backed belts would not have been strong enough for this project. The Purple seemed to barely hold onto less material than the Norton, but not a big difference. Both benefitted from using the sanding cleaner. Both made in USA.
