How do you make sandpaper?
Abrasive sandpaper is made by joining abrasive grains, a resin coating and a cloth or paper backing using an electrostatic current. From there the material is cooked and left to sit and dry before being converted in sanding belts or sanding discs! This same process is followed with aluminum oxide, zirconia or silicone carbide materials.
From there the abrasive jumbo rolls are converted into sanding belts or sanding discs. You can see the converting process below where we convert sanding belts and sanding discs in Anaheim, California!
How long does it take to manufacture custom sanding belts?
While manufacturing times can be seasonal and vary per item or order size. It typically takes about 3 days to manufacture or produce an order of sanding belts. This process is done by cutting down jumbo roll or cut rolls into loops or wide belts! We streamline our manufacturing process by keeping ready to cut rolls handy for efficiency and speed!
How long does it take to manufacture custom abrasive sanding discs?
It typically takes us about 3 to 4 working days to produce a custom order of sanding discs. We typically manufacture our discs using PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) which is commonly referred to as "sticky back" but also have the ability to apply hook & loop to the back of a material.
