The exact abrasive for every stage of paint finishing
Use 3M™ Trizact™ abrasive discs or sheets in place of a conventional body repair abrasive, and you’ll immediately notice a more consistent, faster cut. Use them across a total paint finishing job and you’ll notice an even bigger difference. 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives feature 3M microreplication technology for precise, uniform abrasive surfaces. This makes Trizact ideal for refined finishing work in the body shop. It can also speed up and even eliminate time-consuming steps in paint finishing, from defect removal to scratch refinement to 5000+ swirl elimination. For the finest in paint finishing, use 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives as part of a full paint finishing system featuring 3M™ Perfect-It™ compounds and machine polishes.
Our selection of 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasive Discs includes grades from 1500 to 5000+. Choose Trizact discs for the full range of paint finishing jobs: leveling dust nibs, clear coat spot repairs, orange peel texture matching, scuff sanding blend panels, and removing fine grade sand scratches prior to paint blending, compounding, polishing or swirl removal. 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasive Discs feature foam or film backing, so you can apply just the right touch at every stage.
The benefits of microreplicated abrasive are also available in an abrasive sheet. Choose 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasive Sheets for hand sanding where buffers won’t reach. These sanding sheets are excellent for creating uniform, consistent finishes on individual parts or in conjunction with 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasive Discs across entire panels or vehicles. Conformable foam-backed sheets are ideal for removing fine sand scratches up to P2500 prior to polishing.
No matter what the challenge in finishing work – more consistent results, lower material costs, faster production – our selection of 3M™ Trizact™ abrasive sheets, discs, belts and wheels can refine your entire operation.
3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives for collision repair feature 3M microreplication technology: precisely-shaped, three-dimensional mineral structures distributed uniformly over the abrasive backing. This evenly-spaced configuration results in truly consistent, refined finishes, panel after panel, that you won’t get from any non-microreplicated abrasive.
Starts Sharp, Stays Sharp Longer
Conventional abrasives start out sharp. But as degraded mineral grains break off during use, the cut rate decreases rapidly. The mineral structures on 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives wear differently, exposing more sharp mineral and keeping the abrasive effective for longer periods. This results in a faster, more consistent cut and longer abrasive life.
