3M™ Cubitron™ Abrasive Grain

3M™ Cubitron™ Abrasive Grain

3M™ Cubitron™ Abrasive Grain is a chemically engineered ceramic aluminium oxide mineral that has a unique “stay sharp” crystalline structure, which continually reveals fresh cutting edges on the surface of the work piece ensuring a sustained cut and longer product life. This durable, cost-effective abrasive solution delivers real productivity benefits across an operation without the premature dulling associated with traditional abrasives.

Features
  • Formulated for durability and long life
  • Engineered to stay sharp
  • Designed for thermal stability
3M™ Cubitron™ Abrasive Grain

Technology Explained
3M™ Cubitron™ is a sol gel mineral that sharpens as it wears.

  • Initial grinding breaks away small edges of the grain
  • Sustained grinding form micro fractures, which break-off, to create fresh sharp edges
  • This is a continuous process throughout the grinding operation to ensure long-term efficiency and increasing return on investment (ROI)

3M™ 980CP Fiber Discs

3M™ 980CP Fiber Discs
3M introduces the next generation Fiber Disc – 980CP, with the new Cubitron™ performance grains, which makes light work of heavy duty jobs. The 3M patented Cubitron grains give cooler performance, with extremely fast cut rates - which means no discolored surfaces. These discs come with the latest generation grain technology and can be used for weld grinding and blending.

3M™ Green Corps™ Flexible Grinding Discs

3M™ Green Corps™ Flexible Grinding Discs
3M™ Cubitron™ Abrasive Grain increases efficiency and performs harder than regular minerals, providing a higher cut rate compared to standard grinding discs. The flexible construction in conjunction with the backing plate means less vibration and noise than a conventional grinding disc. 3M™ Green Corps™ Flexible Grinding Discs are easy to use, provides lower vibration levels and reduces chatter – ensuring a better finish that is more easily blended.
