As part of a strategic collaboration between 3M and Festool Automotive Systems, our Total Automotive Sanding System combines best-in-class equipment into one powerful system for automotive sanding and finishing. This optimized system features 3M™ Cubitron™ II sanding abrasives, together with Festool premium power tools and dust extraction solutions.
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 deliver 30% faster cutting and last twice as long as conventional ceramic 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.
