Precision Shaped Grains
A revolutionary precision shaped ceramic grain was created that continually fractures into super-sharp points and edges that slice cleanly through metal, rather than gouging or plowing as traditional abrasives do. This creates a super-fast cut and lessens heat build-up in the workpiece, reducing heat-related stress cracks and discoloration. Moreover, because the abrasive itself stays cooler and sharper, it lasts significantly longer than conventional ceramic grain belts, decreasing costs and reducing belt changeovers.

Durable Design
The exceptionally fast cut and long life of ceramic grain make this belt ideal for industrial environments. It is also heat resistant, produces a uniform finish over the life of the product, and helps eliminate burning during end-grain sanding applications. The YF-weight cloth backing on the 984F cloth provides durability and the mineral is resin bonded to the backing for reliable performance, even under high heat and pressure.

The Cubitron™ II Advantage
Our proprietary 3M™ Cubitron™ II abrasive products have raised the bar for high-performing abrasives. Our engineers started with 3M™ Ceramic Abrasive Grain and used technology to electrostatically orient each triangular structure on the backing to form sharp peaks and maximize cutting potential. These peaks act like individual cutting tools that slice through metal, and continuously shelf-sharpen as the points break off, ensuring extended high performance in heavy-duty production applications. The grains wear evenly and provide extra-long life and consistency with less grinding pressure. The result is that Cubitron™ II products out-cut and outlast every conventional ceramic industrial abrasive product on the market, maximizing productivity and minimizing belt stress and operator fatigue.
