Abrasive Bands

Use abrasive bands (also commonly called sanding drums) to shape and deburr (neaten and smooth the edges of) metal, fibreglass and wood. They're ideal for polishing both soft and hard materials and can be used in home improvement, artwork and woodwork.

How to fit and use an abrasive band

Abrasive bands are commonly used on electric rotary tools - a handheld power tool with a rotary tip.

To fit the abrasive band, you slide it over your holder or mandrel (shaft or spindle) that's connected to an electric rotary tool and turn the nut to make it tight. Now you are ready to use it.

Features, benefits and applications of abrasive bands

Choose from a variety of sizes and grit materials including:

  • Aluminium oxide - best for rough shaping and smoothing wood and fibreglass.
  • Zirconia aluminium - best for de-burring steels and working stainless steel.

Both types of grit are ideal for removing rust from metal surfaces, for shaping rubber surfaces and are easily replaceable. They're commonly used in nut-carving, with wood, metal, plastic, circuit board and in other DIY finishing and working applications.
