3M Trizact 337DC GATOR Structured Abrasive Belt


The “GATOR” belts are extremely popular with knife makers as the premium polishing belt for medium pressure applications lasting 6 times as long as conventional belts and are non-clogging.

Trizact Gator Abrasive Belts are noted for their long life and smooth finish. The layered grit structure makes for belts that will outlast others several times over and which leave an excellent surface finish.

3M™ Trizact™ Structured Abrasives is the critical solution for ensuring precision to the finishing process. The core to this technology is the micro and macro replicated coatings of structures precisely positioned on the backing – the continual exposure of fresh mineral ensures a consistent, even wear, ideal for achieving a pristine finish on delicate or intricate components.

  • Application: Finishing, Polishing
  • Substrates: Aluminum, Carbon Steel, High Nickel Alloy, Soft Metals, Stainless Steel, Titanium/Zirconium
  • Grades: A30, A45, A65, A160

Technology Explained
3M Trizact Structured Abrasives consist of a series of unique 3D structures that contain multiple layers of abrasive, distributed evenly across the backing material. Over a period of time they wear away to continually and consistently expose fresh minerals to the surface of the workpiece, delivering:

  • Macroreplicated abrasive “bricks” contain multiple layers of abrasive mineral, “channels” keep remove swarf and keep work surfaces cleaner
  • Controlled mineral breakdown delivers more consistent, predictable finishes over the life of the belt
  • Durable cloth belt is frequently able to grind and finish in one operation
  • Grinding aid reduces friction and keeps workpiece cool for dry grinding applications
  • Extra-long belt life reduces abrasive cost and inventory
