3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 217EA uses our proprietary microreplication technology where micron-graded aluminum oxide particles are formed into tiny pyramids of abrasive mineral and then coated on a J weight rayon backing. As these pyramids wear, fresh, sharp mineral is continually exposed to produce a consistent cut and a predictable, fine finish.
Use 3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Belt 217EA to provide consistent finishes on hard metals such as carbon and stainless steel. Our 217EA belts feature an abrasive and resin structure which is formulated to break down under medium pressure to keep a fresh, fast cutting mineral. A J-weight, durable cloth backing helps provide control, conformability and effective medium-pressure grinding. The resin bonded abrasive gives you greater heat resistance and helps prevent delamination. These belts use a Film Media Splice, a strong secure bond joining the belt ends, consisting of a thin film-joining media that minimises ‘chatter marks’, ensures a smooth running belt and helps consistent finishing results. When compared to conventional abrasive products, Trizact abrasives produce a finer finish, achieve results faster and last longer. These belts can last up to five times longer than other belts and provide precise finish control so operators can reduce grade sequences, requiring fewer process steps and abrasive products. Three-dimensional structures uniformly distributed over the entire surface of 3M Trizact abrasives ensure consistent performance and eliminate part to part variation.
