Our unrivalled expertise in people and products will help you protect your workforce and realise productivity improvements throughout the manufacturing or refurbishment process.
Using unique Precision-Shaped Grain technology, 3M Cubitron II
will transform your cutting, grinding and sanding processes.
3M’s proprietary Precision-Shaped Grain technology acts like a cutting tool, slicing through metal like a knife. The material is continuously self-sharpening, as points break off during use to expose new sharp edges – slicing cleaner and faster, staying cooler and lasting many times longer than conventional grain types.
Precision-Shaped Grain in 3M Cubitron ll abrasives slice through metal cleaner and faster.
Conventional ceramic grain is irregular and “ploughs” through the metal
3M Precision-Shaped Grain technology in Cubitron™ II abrasives takes productivity to a whole new level. When compared to traditional products made with aluminium oxide, zirconia or ceramic grain, 3M Cubitron II abrasives cut faster and last longer.
High cut-rates boost productivity and long life means less change-overs.
Ideal for weld removal and cutting of chassis and all types of metal panels.
Aggressive, coarse-grained Scotch-Brite Clean & Strip material for rapid cleaning action. Resists loading and heat build up.
Available with 3M Roloc™ ‘Quick Release’ for quick and easy disc change – ideal for removal of corrosion and rust in hard to access areas.
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.
