Description 8x3 25-7/32 Agglomerate Silicon Carbide

Try our new agglomerate sanding belts. They are made with silicon carbide. The reason they last 3-5 times longer than a traditional belt is that they have a grain mass. This results in a consistent material removal rate and a longer life. Shipping weight 3 oz. each.

Agglomerate Grain Mass Illustration
While the surface of the belt appears to be a coarse grain of grit, they are actually a mass of silicon carbide grains. The grain mass is all the same grit/particle size. As the belt is used, more particles are exposed underneath. They are less than the cost of a comparable diamond belt and a little bit more than a traditional silicon carbide belt.

Customer Questions
Can these belts be trimmed down to fit a smaller wheel, or will that affect their structural integrity?
We wouldn't recommend this. The manufacturer does this prior to seaming the belts together.

Better than anticipated!!
Review by
Traditional silicon carbide products typically don't last very long at all so i was skeptical about these however i came across a few good reviews of this product and decided to give them a try.

I can say I am extremely satisfied!! For the price these are an incredible deal!! After using the belts for over two hours last night they seem barely broken in. A traditional sc belt would have been worn out by this point.

The real question becomes does a diamond belt last 20x longer than one of these because that's about the equivalent in price...from what I can tell these are more cost effective. Will be my go to belts for now on.

Only wish I have is that these will be made in 3000 grit and up!! Maybe someday...

Thanks kingsley for offering this product!!

Awesome new idea and EXTREMELY long wearing for Silicon
Review by
These are the best vale in Lapidary equipment for even a commercial Art Studio. Frankly, they wear better than the diamond belts and wheels I had been using. Wear can be extended by running the belts in both directions, ignoring the directional arrows. the taped joint is the usual wear out point but I found that adding duct tape over that point "smooths" the joint and further extends the life of the belts. These belts do need a higher water flow than diamond wheels or belts for getting their best performance.
