3M™ Cloth 483W is an abrasive sanding cloth constructed on a heavy, screen backing that features open coat construction for consistent sanding action. Our 483W cloth is available in custom sizes.
Screen Sanding Cloth
Our 3M™ Sanding Screen 483W is best suited for metal sanding and finishing thanks to its durability and fast cutting abrasive material. Its heavy, screen cloth backing provides smooth operation and durability and can conform to the shape of contoured parts for consistent finishing. The abrasive side features an open coat for even finishing and helps to reduce material loading when sanding on softer materials.
Silicon Carbide Abrasive
Our 483W paper uses silicon carbide, which is a popular choice among industrial professionals because of its fast cut-rate and consistant finish. This synthetic mineral is very hard and fractures easily, resulting in freshly exposed sharp edges that cuts extra fast and produces a clean, professional-looking finish. Silicon carbide products are commonly used for low-pressure applications such as cleaning and finishing on wood and metal. While it wears faster than aluminum oxide, it produces a superior finish.
Waterproof and Heat Resistant
This cloth also uses a resin bonding which is specially designed to resist thermal and chemical deterioration, which can occur during sanding. This bond is very tough and excellent for precision work on hard and soft surfaces. This also allows for faster sanding and a higher cut rate. The waterproof cloth baking enables the user to rinse areas of the workpiece and the cloth during use to prevent dust and debris from clogging the abrasive points to produce a fast and consistent finish at the same time.
