3. The Grinding Tools

The sand belt is a bendable grinding tool.

It consists of:

The support (support material)

The support is coated with glue which takes up the abrasive grains. Is has a high stability and bendability in order to resist the strains during the grinding process.

Binding agent (glue)

The binding agent serves to stick the abrasive to the support.

The abrasives

The abrasives are shaped edged, mineral or synthetic abrasive tools of different size and hardness. The abrasive carries out the cutting process. There are abrasives of different type and grain size.

According to the grain size different grain groups are distinguished.

The maximum size of the abrasive grains is indicated in 1/100 mm.

The sand belt is roller ware with a roller width of 120 mm to 200 mm. It is cut to the necessary length and fixed together as a transverse or tooth shaped joint. The joint will be sticked on the back with solid thin cloth.

The sand belt should be stored dry. The belts should not be bent or teared on the edges.

The abrasive type and the graining are printed on the sand belt, e.g. NK 32, NK = normal corundum, 32 = medium grain group.

The sand belt must be covered at the belt rollers and at the front edge of the upper belt run.
