For aggressive grinding, users are enjoying great results with our newest generation Firestorm Ceramic Belts (grits 36 to 120). For stock removal, ceramic belts are the most productive. While all brands of ceramic provide self-sharpening characteristics & high stock removal rates, they are NOT all created equal! Our Firestorm belts feature the latest grain technology. Their unique micro-crystalline grain structure provides for “thousands” of new cutting points throughout the life of the product, enhancing the cut rate and overall life. They don’t require as much pressure and many customers have reported 30-40% longer life. Many of our customers prefer these belts over Blaze® or Cubitron® products.
