Surface conditioning belts are made with a strong non-woven polymer and a nylon cloth backing. Surface conditioning belts are not meant to remove metal but rather leave a particular finish without changing the shape or features of the material. They can produce satin finishes, polished finishes and are handy for rust and paint removal. They provide a very consistent and smooth finish while resisting overheating and loading due to their open design.
Note: Surface conditioning belts require more power at startup, especially when new.
