SAND CUT FOR DRY ZIPP P60 COARSE, 125MM OUTSIDE DIAMETER
It is used for grinding not only metals, but also wood. The sanding piece is used for dry sanding, i.e. without soaking in water or wetting the surface of the processed material. The abrasive grain is applied to the Velcro surface, which is finer than conventional paper with applied abrasive grain. Thanks to this, the grinding cut is finer and more sensitive when working. In addition, it is minimally clogged and thus lasts longer than the competition.
While polishing aluminum discs, tanks and metals in general, I have come across a lot of velcro emery cuts that are available here. I was looking, however, for a grinding piece that doesn’t just stick with aluminum, that can withstand grinding for a longer time (I mean in minutes). Another requirement was that the velcro on the far side of the grinding grain should hold sufficiently on the carrier (base plate). Because I got hand emery cloths that didn’t stick to the wearer, they came off and you could feel that the velcro layer was soft with just a light touch. And so the sanding piece broke off from the driver as soon as I pressed it against the sanded material. In addition, there was also a problem with the abrasive grain. Some abrasive grains were quickly lost from the emery cut. Other grains were invariably uneven and this caused sharp burrs in the aluminum. Aluminium, in itself, is quite a soft material for grinding. That’s why I settled on this type of sandpaper, which made my work easier and, as a result, reduced the consumption of cutouts for the polished surface.
