What 2" x 42" belt should you order?
ALUMINUM OXIDE 2 x 42 belts are best for sanding and finishing wood, aluminum, stainless steel or steel. These belts are 100% what you should order if you are sanding or finishing wood. You can also use this material for the other metals i mentioned, however if you are looking for longevity and stock removal in grits 36 through 120, you would be best served to use zirconia or ceramic due it its long life on these surfaces. Aluminum oxide is typically brown in color.
ZIRCONIA 2 X 42 belts are best suited for heavy stock removal in grits 36, 40, 60, 80 & 120 and are primarily for sanding metals such as aluminum, stainless steel, mild steel or steel. You can certainly use this on heavy stock removal applications for wood, however it is less common. Zirconia is green in color.
CERAMIC 2 X 42 belts are best suited for hard metal surfaces such as stainless steel and steel. Ceramic is typically about 40% more expensive than zirconia, however when sanding these surfaces you will get 2-3X more life than zirconia and 6-7X more life than aluminum oxide. These are a great value when doing stock removal between grits 36 and 120 grit. These belts are typically RED or ORANGE in color.
