What are J-Flex sanding belts?

There's a unique product category that floats around when you're looking at abrasives: "J-Flex". But, What are J-Flex sanding belts? Do they cost more? Is it worth it?

Simply put, Hermes' J-Flex belts are specially-made belts constructed to last longer because they resist heating more than other sanding belts and because they are backed with fabric which will resist higher-pressure. Heating (as some of you may have experienced) may cause discoloration of steel and can also kill a sanding belt very quickly. Hermes puts it this way:


J-Flex Sanding Belt Benefits

  • Highly economical due to low overall grinding costs

  • Low grinding temperatures due to additional cooling additives (up to +220)

  • Tear resistant backing in the transverse direction, reduces risk of belt breakage on robotic applications

  • The low-strain backing ensures belt runs smoothly

  • High adaptability to contours due to flexible synthetic fabric combined with a high elasticity

What's the difference between the ceramic j-flex sanding belts and the aluminum oxide j-flex belts? Hands down, at the end of the day if you tend to press harder on your belts when you work, you need j-flex. Now, you may run into our 36 grit j-flex aluminum oxide sanding belt.... but don't even think about using it in your early-stage/stock removal phase. As of the date of this article, I have not met anyone who goes that route. USE CERAMIC j-flex belts for your stock removal!
