From Combat Abrasives:
"P963S (Ceramic)– This Abrasive comes in an Orange/Reddish color typical for ceramic grains. The grain structure provides for the continuous renewal of the most consistent and uniform cutting edges. The advanced technology of ceramic grain enhances cut rates for faster cutting and cooler stock removal on tough applications. These belts will outperform Zirconia and Aluminum Oxide belts in all hard to grind, tight tolerance finish requirements."
"R203 – (Zirconia Alumina) is best known for its green color. A rugged synthetic abrasive that is best suited for stock removal applications. This heavy duty structure requires heavier pressure to break down the self-sharpening grains. It is ideal for heavy grinding on ferrous and non-ferrous metals and planning hard woods. Zirconia lasts up to 5 times longer than Aluminum Oxide on tough applications."
Aluminum Oxide is a very common and affordable abrasive recognized by its brown color. Suitable for use on wood and ferrous or non-ferrous metals.
"S181 – (Silicon Carbide) Recognized in the abrasives industry by its black color, this is the hardest and sharpest manufactured abrasive grain. This is the only coated abrasive that will cut through hard or brittle surfaces such as glass, marble, tile, granite, carbide or hardened finishes. The finer grits are ideally suited for finishing on many surfaces and hardened metals."
For a general simplification, the abrasive material is a trade off between quality and cost. Aluminum Oxide is the most affordable of our options, but it is the least durable. The most durable of our options is the ceramic but it is also the most expensive. The zirconia option is a trade off between the two. We also offer Silicon Carbide for finer polish grits.
