Our 3M™ Fibre 501C is a versatile and general purpose metalworking abrasive, designed to help with a variety of applications from grinding, weld removal & finishing to blending on metals like carbon steel.

3M™ Fibre Disc 501C
Versatile disc for use on a wide variety of metals
Durable and Dependable
We engineer 3M™ Fibre 501C by adhering alumina-zirconia mineral to a fibre backing using resin. The closed coat construction on 3M™ Fibre 501C means mineral grains cover nearly 100% of the backing. The stiff fibre backing is extremely durable — vulcanized, hardened and condensed prior to being coated with mineral. It withstands wear and tends not to yield or deflect when run, which helps the abrasive stay strong, especially when grinding and finishing on edges.

Tips for Optimal Use
Altogether, fiber abrasives are rigid and deliver a fast cut for grinding and weld removal, and they come in a range of sizes to correspond to large or small welds. Fiber discs also work well for blending (creating a smooth surface after weld removal) and provide a consistent finish over the workpiece. This fibre can be cut to fit a variety of portable tools, facilitating easier access with the workpiece.
