Power Sanding Sheets & Belts

Sanding belts and sheets for sanding machines require added durability over a normal sheet of sandpaper or sanding disk and are made with a material backing to withstand the additional stress, heat and wear when being used in a machine. Belt sanders use a variety of length and width belts so understanding the exact size your tool or machine requires is key to ensuring a safe working environment. Sanding sheets are usually used for oscillating or orbital sanders come in a range of shapes and sizes in packs to suit different sanders. Whether you need a sheet unpunched or punched, also the shape of the sheet, from rectangular, triangular and disc at RS Components we have you covered with a quality range.

How to use a Sanding Sheet

Sanding sheets can be used for hand sanding or power sanding where they are attached to power tool such as an orbital sander. Hand sanding gives a lighter touch to the material being sanded. Power sanding sheets are fitted onto a power tool to quickly get rid of blemishes, shaping and levelling wood or for preparing metal surfaces for painting.
