While 3M manages a diverse family of global brands, they are all united with a single purpose – to make life better for the people and businesses who use them. From saving time and improving safety to making daily living simpler and more organized, 3M brands are part of the products people use every day. From aerospace to sandpaper and everything in between, innovation driven by human insight is what drives 3M.
With revolutionary Cubitron™ II Abrasives, 3M has rewritten the rules for speed, consistency and abrasive life. Made with precisely shaped, self-sharpening triangles of ceramic aluminum oxide, Cubitron™ II abrasives are designed to fracture as they wear, continuously forming new, super-sharp points and edges that slice cleanly through metal like knives. This keeps the workpiece cooler, reducing heat-related stress cracks and discoloration. And because Cubitron™ II abrasives stay cooler and sharper, they can last up to four times longer than conventional abrasives.
For more than 40 years manufacturer's have trusted Scotch-Brite™ Abrasives for a wide range of cleaning and finishing applications. Only Scotch-Brite™ Discs, Belts, Pads and Wheels:
Improve surfaces without significantly changing the shape or dimension of the workpiece
Help prevent undercutting and gouging through their controlled abrasive action
Continuously expose fresh abrasive to the work surface to create consistent, uniform finishes
Feature open-web construction that runs cool and resists loading, reducing the risk of part discoloration and warping, and extending the life of your abrasives.
Think consistency when you think 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives. Featuring a micro-engineered surface of uniform pyramidal structures, Trizact abrasives deliver more consistent finishes, higher cut rates, and cooler grinding and finishing temperatures than conventional abrasives. They start sharp and stay sharp, for more predictable finishes, lower reject rates, higher worker productivity and more consistent quality in your end products. Trizact abrasives are ideal for applications requiring a fine finish, such as stainless steel, chromium, nickel and cobalt-based materials.
