3M Precision Shaped Grain

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.

CAM Center

The 3M Customer Abrasive Methods (CAM) Center is where 3M's dedicated engineering staff use their expertise to help customers solve surface modification challenges.


At 3M, we are working hard to help create a better world for people everywhere. We apply our ingenuity, our expertise, and our technology to solve problems innovatively, and with a focus on solutions for the longer term.
