3M™ Blue Abrasives

Your go-to workhorse for body repair and paint prep

Consistent performance. Best-in-class value.

  • More than almost anything else in the collision repair business today, consistency is the key to success. That’s why we developed our 3M™ Blue Abrasives. In every way, this selection of abrasive discs, sheet rolls and disc rolls is engineered to cut cleanly through the bulk of your panel prep and repair jobs, time after time. A balanced ceramic and aluminum oxide mineral blend abrasive makes quick and consistent work of metal and filler. An anti-loading coating and an available multi-hole pattern help evacuate dust from the abrasive surface, increasing efficiency and extending abrasive life. And 3M™ Hookit™ hook-and-loop or 3M™ Stikit™ adhesive attachment makes for quicker, more effortless change-outs. Blue Abrasives are available in a range of grades for jobs from repair through paint prep.

3M Blue Abrasives – Featured Products

  • All of the features and benefits of our Blue Abrasives in one abrasive disc. The multi-hole pattern is specially designed to extract dust from the abrasive surface better than any standard 6- or 7-hole configuration, and makes it easy for users to align the disc with nearly any backup pad. Our 3M™ Hookit™ attachment works with any hook-and-loop sanding pad or tool.

  • Powerful discs, packaged to save time. Simply tear these abrasive discs from the roll one at a time – there are no liners to slow you down. Our 3M™ Stikit™ attachment lets you simply press the disc onto a 3M™ Stikit™ Disc Pad and it stays put until you’re ready to remove it. To make the process even easier, you can use the 3M™ Stikit™ Disc Roll Dispenser PN 05450.

  • Sheet rolls make it fast and easy to tear off the right length for the job you need, whether hand sanding or sanding with a power tool. A chevron hole pattern extracts dust from the abrasive surface, helping to deliver more sanding per sheet. Our 3M™ Hookit™ hook-and-loop attachment works with any hook-and-loop hand block, pad or power tool for quick change-outs.

  • The tear-off abrasive makes it easy and efficient to fashion abrasive sheets, and adhesive backing lets you attach them to specific hand blocks or power tools without foldover for minimal product waste. The balanced mineral blend abrasive on all of our 3M™ Blue Abrasives makes for a fast, consistent cut for a range of jobs from panel repair though paint preparation.

3M™ Blue Abrasives Table Data Sheet

  • Important Note
    There are of course many factors and variables that can affect an individual repair, so the technician and repair facility need to evaluate each specific application and repair process, including relevant vehicle, part and OEM guidelines, and determine what is appropriate for that repair.
