Zirconium rolls 200mm*50m are abrasives in reel form. They can be used as an abrasive belt
simply by cutting the length of roll required for the application. Abrasive rolls are particularly useful when it is necessary to customise the length of the abrasive to suit the task in hand.
The 200mm*50m Zirconium Rollers are instantly recognisable thanks to their distinctive bright blue colour. Designed specifically for use on belt sanders, these rollers are destined to excel in metal and hard material work, offering maximum efficiency for roughing operations. It is essential to note, however, that their use for finishing is generally not recommended, as it can lead to fine micro-scratches on the surfaces being worked.
One of the major advantages of these zirconium rollers is the remarkable ability of their grains to self-sharpen naturally as they are sanded, thereby considerably extending their operational life. It is worth noting that there is a variation in quality among zirconium abrasives, with zirconium content ranging from 20% to 60%. It is therefore strongly recommended that you opt for higher quality products, such as those in the Repex range, which have an ideal zirconium content of 60%, guaranteeing optimum performance for a variety of sanding applications.
Conclusion: not all zircos are created equal!
