When I sand Aluminum, my belts get clogged prematurely. Is there anything I can do?

Yes, we offer a couple of options:
  1. Use our Zirc Plus belt, it has a grinding aid that helps prevent loading.
  2. We sell a grease stick that acts as a lubricant. A small amount applied to the belt while running, prevents the aluminum from adhering.
  3. DO NOT use a belt cleaning stick, they are designed for cleaning belts that have been used on wood, they will not remove aluminum that is stuck on the belt.
