Power File Belts

Abrasive power file belts 

Introduction: We supply ideal replacement belts for almost power files. Most sizes are available ex-stock in most grades from 36 / 40 grit and in all the standard surface conditioning material grades.  Please note that the range of machines and lengths available is extensive, so if the particular belt size you require is not shown on this site, we can almost certainly make it to order. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Power File Belt Selection

Please check your belt size prior to ordering.  If you are at all unsure please cut open an old belt and carefully measure the length and width. Most machines have some scope for belt tightening.

Standard Sanding Range: We have selected the optimum abrasive for performance in metalworking. Our Performance sanding range thus includes:

Grade 36-80:   Ceramic  -  For rapid material removal and shaping. Ideal for coarser grinding grades.

Grade 120:  TZ59  Zirconium  -  For controlled stock removal also used for mini belt sizes (where flexibility is important) in other grades.

Grades 180-400:  JF4T - Aluminium Oxide - For refining and pre-polishing. A high purity aluminium oxide with top coating. Ideal for most metals including stainless steel and aluminium.

We also offer powerfile belts in:

SCM  -  Surface Conditioning  -  For blending and creating a burr free finish

Trizact  -  Structured Grain  -  For fine finishing in fewer stages.

If the belt you require is not shown please contact us and we can manufacture the belt to your own specifications.

 Notes on abrasive belt performance:

When using power-file belts many people suffer from problems with belts breaking or with the abrasive belts wearing out very quickly.  There is normally one of three reasons for this

  1. The quality of the belt joints being supplied. 
  2. The strength of the backing used
  3. The type of abrasive grit

In our experience it is not worth compromising on any of the above. 

  1. To ensure break-free joints our poduction partners, Cibo, have spent many years developing the right joint for power-file belts. This consists of correct preparation prior to taping the joint and curing the adhesive.
  2. All our standard stock belts are made with either strong polyester cloth or heavy duty cloth backings.
  3. For all coarser grit belts we recommend a premium performance ceramic grit. This vastly out-performs both aluminium oxide and zirconium on metal.
