With the new revolutionary Cubitron™ II Abrasives Belts, 3M has rewritten the rules for speed, consistency and abrasive life. Made with precisely shaped, self-sharpening triangles of ceramic aluminum oxide, Cubitron™ II belts are designed to fracture as they wear, continuously forming new, super-sharp points and edges that slice cleanly through like knives. This keeps the workpiece cooler, reducing heat-related stress cracks and discoloration.
Our Cubitron™ II abrasives deliver fast cut rates and long service life thanks to the use of 3M Precision-Shaped Grain. This engineered grain continuously forms sharp points and edges that slice through metal substrates, delivering fast cutting action compared to conventional abrasives. Cubitron™ II abrasives wear evenly, run cool and provide super-long life and consistency. This makes them ideal for cutting, grinding, deburring and other aggressive metalworking applications.
Our Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives are designed to deliver a consistently fast, yet forgiving cut that won’t significantly change the shape or dimension of the workpiece. Unique, nonwoven construction helps prevent loading, undercutting and gouging, even around contoured shapes and corners. This makes Scotch-Brite™ abrasives ideal for finishing, blending, deburring, paint or rust removal and more.
Our 3M™ Trizact™ abrasives are designed to deliver consistent quality in finishing work. Featuring precisely patterned structures filled with sharp abrasive grains, Trizact™ abrasives deliver more consistent finishes and cut-rates, a longer useful lifespan and cooler working temperatures than conventional abrasives. This predictable performance results in lower part-rejection rates, higher productivity and more consistent quality in your end products.
