We're Here For You!

Abrasive Belt Backings

When talking about coated abrasive belts, the first thing you’ll probably hear about is the abrasive formula – aluminum-oxide, ceramic-alumina, silicon-carbide, and zirconia-alumina. Today, we’re going to talk about something equally important, the backing.

At Abrasive Industrial Supplies (AIS) we sell mostly cloth coated belts but did you know there are paper and polyester film backed belts too? We’ll start with the cloth backed belts and finish up with some information on the other types.

Big Changes Are Coming to AIS

AIS is growing and we're moving into a new space! Same address, just a larger part of the facility.

The new area is bigger and designed to be way more efficient. That's great because Dennis, our main belt builder, has been tripping over himself lately to get everything out on time. 

Unfortunately with growth comes growing pains ... The shop will be closed for a few days while we transfer everything from the current space to the new space. This closure is happening December 18 to 20, 2019 so some lead times will be a little longer than usual. 

If you have any questions, give us a call at 1-800-433-8010!

Materials arrive for the new AIS Work Area
