Abranet Max is specifically designed for use with timber. This aluminium oxide abrasive is bonded to a symmetrical net that allows it to be used in either grain direction.
Abranet Max is suited to applications requiring heavy material removal. Because belt sanders do not extract material through the abrasive, Abranet Max is optimised to prevent clogging of the belt, even when abrading very resinous woods. It also provides excellent cutting power even on very hard timbers.
Because Abranet Max removes material efficiently from the site of the cut, it can be used with little downward force or pressure, leaving the user with a consistent finish.
The inherent efficiency of the abrasive’s net-based design allows machines equipped with Abranet Max to work timber with much lower temperatures at the point of contact, and it can even be used in applications that require water as a cooling agent.
This built-in efficiency also gives Abranet Max products a greatly extended lifetime compared to conventional belt abrasives.
