3M™ Slurry-Free CMP3M™ Abrasives for CMP
Highly engineered structured abrasive products deliver reliable performance for critical semiconductor CMP applications. 3M™ Diamond Pad Conditioners use deliberate diamond placement and protrusion to produce a consistent finish, with excellent diamond retention to reduce scratching.

3M™ Diamond Lapping Film3M™ Diamond Lapping Film
Micron graded diamond particles resin bonded to a polyester backing, offer a cleaner, more consistent alternative to diamond compounds or slurries. Use to finish and polish hard to grind materials such as glass, ceramics, hardened metals, and composites.

3M™ Lapping Film3M™ Lapping Film
Tightly graded mineral particles are coated on polyester film backings to provide precision finishes. Used for polishing fiber optic connectors and rigid memory disks, texturing thin film disks, roll superfinishing and flat lapping applications.

3M™ Polishing Film
3M™ Polishing Film is available in either abrasive or non-abrasive products. The non-abrasive product is comprised of resilient fibers coated onto a polyester film backing. It is usually used as a carrier for a polishing compound. When the fibrous backing is coated with precisely graded mineral particles, the unique abrasive product provides a consistent and repeatable finish.

3M™ Trizact™ Diamond Lapping Film Magnification3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives
Reduce finishing times with 3M microreplicated structured abrasives. As these film-backed abrasives are used, the tops of the tiny structures wear away continuously exposing fresh mineral. This ensures a fast and extremely consistent cut rate through the long life of the abrasive. Used in a variety of optical substrate lapping applications and for polishing fiber optic connectors.

3M™ Wetordry™ Polishing Paper3M™ Wetordry™ Polishing Paper
A non-woven backing provides superior flexibility for finishing and polishing highly contoured surfaces of softer materials. Use wet or dry on aluminum, precious metals, plastic, polyurethane, solid surface composites, fiberglass and wood.
