Correct storage

Temperature and humidity affect sanding results!
ideal temperature: 16 – 20 degrees Celsius
ideal humidity: 50 – 60% RH

What happens when the humidity is too high:

  • sagging abrasive
  • negative belt turning
  • wrinkly surface
  • grit loss before time

What happens when the humidity is too low:

  • loss of toughness
  • belt turning to grit side

Tips:

  • Hang the belts for 24 hours in the climate where they are used
  • Hang belts on a belt gallow
  • Lenght of the gallow should be at least width of the belts
  • Diamenter of the gallow should be approx. the diameter of the abrasive cylinder
  • Keep off dirt, oil and grease
