Don’t know your belt size? What Belt Size Does My Wide Belt Sanding Machine Use?

We offer a variety of materials to suit most applications and substrates, with both paper and cloth backings depending on what would most suit your needs. Paper belts are very popular, and are most suited to workpieces that are not as rough/sharp and do not have inclusions which would likely tear the belt, so recommended more in the finer grits where less stock removal is required and the surface is smoother. However these are also common in coarse grits due to the lower price point.

Cloth is very durable so recommended for heavy-duty sanding with aggressive stock removal, particularly on rough surfaces with sharp edges where it is less likely to tear. It is also much longer lasting and can provide 2-3 times the service life of paper, if not more, so cloth can often be a more economical solution.

Please note that the majority of belts are made to order, and the usual lead time is approximately 7-10 working days. To confirm whether something is a stock or made to order item please feel free to ask in our online chat or give us a call on 01273 463677.
