Developed for increased throughput and consistent finish regardless of the job, 3M™ Cubitron™ II sanding discs, sheet rolls, sanding belts and cutting and grinding discs cut 30% faster and last 2x as long vs. other premium abrasives. Featuring our Precision Shaped Grain (PSG) – essentially, sharp peaks that slice, not plow, through paint and metal – Cubitron II is designed for the most efficient cut and even wear. This allows it to run cooler and require less pressure vs. traditional abrasives. Excellent for lighter-weight metals like aluminum, and for reducing fatigue among your body repair technicians.
Get a deeper, glossier finish without the mess, the stress or the rework of compounding. Our new system features 3M™ Trizact™ abrasive discs and sheets in an extremely fine 8000 grade – the first of its kind in paint finishing. Trizact™ 8000 removes very fine defects in painted surfaces, taking the place of compounding. Follow with our specially formulated 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step Finishing Material and purple 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step Foam Finishing Pad, which deliver the cut of compounding with the fine finish of polishing.
Lay down a liquid-proof layer of protection against oil, grease and other harsh fluids that can damage work and work surfaces in your collision repair shop. This adhesive-backed surface protection material is great for paint heavy hit bay, work tables, shop and bay entrances, and anywhere else that dirt, grime and fluids can land. It features the nonwoven dirt-trapping surface of our 3M™ Dirt Trap products, with the added benefit of liquid protection. Save time and money, reducing prep and cleanup time.
