Constructed of a soft durable foam. When used with a Clean Sanding Backup Pad it increases conformability allowing the technician to follow contours and get in closer to most edges while maximizing dust extraction.
Use our 3M™ Clean Sanding Soft Interface Disc Pad to reduce edge cutting when the pad is tipped on edge and maintain closer contact with the edge while maximizing dust extraction. The pad contains a series of uniquely designed holes and channels which allow dust to be pulled through the holes and away from the sanding surface. This improves the work environment and prolongs disc life. Our 3M™ Clean Sanding dust-management system evacuates dust from the work surface better than 5 or 6-hole products, dramatically increasing disc life and maximizing cut-rate. Optimized with a self-generated vacuum sanding tool fitted with a 3M™ Clean Sanding filter bag (sold separately), our Clean Sanding products allow the vacuum to suction dust from the air and off of the workpiece. This reduces loading of the disc and adds life to the abrasive. Additionally, reducing dust in the air improves working conditions. You can also pair 3M™ Clean Sanding abrasives with our 3M™ Clean Sanding disc pads for use on a central-vacuum-ready sander.
