Resin-on-resin bonded aluminum oxide sanding belts are perfect for the toughest wood sanding jobs. The belts feature a heavy duty 100% cotton backing for increased working life. All belts are open coat, preferred for sanding off painted or finished surfaces as the belts resist "loading up" with removed material.

4x24 sanding belts
I don't know about the rest of you, but when I am doing a project, first is safety, the second concern is quality of the piece for my client and third but not last is cost. Most so called wholesale lumber houses in my area sell belts by the singles or two's and they are very expensive. Most times the only thing I can find is what's called a ceramic sanding belt. They are very expensive and don't last long. So the best product at the best price is the aluminum oxide belts from you.

I use mine on my HP...
I use mine on my HP sander, it works great. The price is a plus and it does a tremendous job. I have ea. an 80, 100 & 120. The 80 does a very nice job of rapid clearing of the wood, and the 100 a very nice job of cleaning up the marks left by the 80. The 120 is great for a final smoothing prior to going to my finish sander, and leaves a very nice finish all by itself. I do not find any bump from the binding, and the belt joint lasts well beyond the life of the Aluminum Oxide. Rockler always finds the best manufacturer and somehow seems to get the best prices. A great combination!

Are they open or closed coat and x or y rated? Aluminum oxide 4x24 sanding belts.
Jim W on Aug 4, 2016
I noticed the aluminum oxide belts say open coat, I thought closed coat was best for wood ?
Jim W on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Closed COAT

Closed Coat means that close to 100% of the backing on a coated abrasive product is covered in abrasive grain. Closed Coat products are more aggressive and cut faster because the grit particles are grouped more closely together.They also provide the best finishes because there are no gaps between the grains. You receive the full benefit of the work that the abrasive grain is capable of doing.

SEMI OPEN / OPEN COAT

Semi-Open and Open Coat means that there is more space between grain particles on the abrasive product. Semi-Open Coat usually refers to about a 30% reduction in the amount of grain on the backing and Open Coat usually means that there is about 50% coverage. Semi-Open and Open Coat products have less grain on the backing, which results in less cutting power per grit designation...they are not as aggressive as a Closed Coat abrasive product. In addition, Semi-Open and Open Coat products have gaps in their grain coverage, so the finishes they provide are not quite as even and will tend to fall on the coarse end of the finishing scale for that particular grit.

The purpose of the sandpaper is to remove the previous tool marks. It's the grade of the paper that's critical, not the so-called open-coat. I find the closed-coat the best way to finish any wood project
