New long-lasting 3M Trizact Cloth belts go distance

3M, the diversified technology company, has made two new additions to its Trizact Cloth Belt range for wet centreless, flat finishing and polishing applications.

Offering customers consistent cut and finish, significantly reduced break-in periods and cost savings through reduced process steps, the new 363FC and 463FC products deliver a controlled, predictable wear rate, resulting in fewer belt changes and reduced machinery downtime. Constructed of aluminium oxide (363FC) and silicon carbide (463FC) mineral bonded to a durable cloth backing, the new belts are suitable for use on a broad range of materials including titanium, zirconium and steel alloys.

When used in conjunction with existing products in the Trizact range, the 363FC and 463FC complete a comprehensive centreless applications system. This produces constant and measured finishes alongside extended life when compared to conventional abrasive methods – also avoiding the 'wild scratches' often encountered with other abrasives.

3M's Trizact technology consists of a microreplicated pattern of tiny, three-dimensional pyramids, which wears evenly, constantly exposing new layers of mineral to deliver a more consistent, predictable finish.

Henry Blackman, marketing executive, abrasive systems, at 3M, explained: “The new Trizact Cloth Belts have been extensively tested prior to launch by manufacturers across Europe and North America, with excellent feedback.

“Their consistent finish makes these belts ideal for wet centreless, flat finishing and polishing, and fine blanking applications, as well as clutch plate deburring and wet cylindrical grinding.

“Furthermore, as the 363FC and 463FC have been engineered to last around twice as long as conventional cork and agglomerate grit belts, they can deliver significant cost savings as well as producing fewer rejects, meaning less time-consuming rework.”
