Sanding belt cleaners work to clean and dress sanding belts of all grits, freeing the belts of particles that lodge themselves between the abrasive grains, eventually causing a dull cut. To use, just hold the stick against a moving abrasive belt to remove the loaded particles.
What do belt cleaners do?
Rubber Erasers are used to clean metal or wood particles from sanding belts to extend the life of the sanding belt by 30 - 50%. This is one of the best belt maintenance products you can use to get you the most bang for your buck in extending the life of your abrasive sanding belts.
What sanding belts can you use a belt eraser on?
Belt erasers can be used on either ceramic, zirconia or aluminum oxide sanding belts. Erasers are compatible and extend the life of all three types of material. The eraser will remove dust build up from metal such as steel, stainless steel, aluminum and various non metal products such as g10, plastics, woods (all types) and many others. We highly recommend these.
What is the best way to extend the life of a sanding belt?
The best way to extend the life of a ceramic, zirconia or aluminum oxide sanding belt is by using a rubber eraser. The eraser is held up to the sanding belt for about 3 - 6 seconds to full unclog the sanding belt of any built up metal, wood or plastic material that was being sanded. These erasers can extend the life of the sanding belt up to 50%. Many soft woods will clog the sanding belt and cause the belt to "glaze" over and prevent the grit from sanding. These belt cleaners are truly a must have in any woodworker or metal workers shop.
