Powerfile Belts

Abrasive Grinding, Sanding & Polishing Belts for Finger Files.

Please accept our apologies but we stock very few blue / zirconia belts for the powerfile machine.  Why?

  • Simply because Cibo Ceramics out-perform the zirconia belts in every respect and are the same price!!

The range of abrasive belts are available from 36 grit, through satin finishing / scotchbrite type belts, Trizact belts for pre-polishing and non-abrasive belts for mirror polishing.

Powerfile Belts FAQs

  • Why do you not have many blue / zirconia belts in stock?

    10 years ago, zirconia (blue belts) used to be the belt of choice for most dynafile applications. Now, with the advent of the new Cibo Ceramics (fast cut, long life and better finish), this is no longer the case. We strongly recommend the ceramic belt options whenever they are available. The Cibo ceramics not only outperform zirconia belts in every way, but they are also the same price!

    Ceramic Abrasive Belts
    - Best for high aggression; fast cutting, grinding and longest life.

    Aluminium Oxide Abrasive Belts
    - Finer grits. Used when a high quality finish is required from your abrasive belt.

  • When should I use Surface Conditioning belts?

    For final finishing applications, surface conditioning / SCM belts leave a beautiful and burr free, satin finish, which makes them particularly suited to refining and final finishing stainless steel and non-ferrous metals.

    Please note that surface conditioning belts are thicker than traditional abrasive belts. We recommend a 6mm gap in the throat of the machine to ensure smooth running of the belts.
