- Our self-generating vacuum sander is designed to work with the 3M™ Clean Sanding System.™ It comes with a HEPA-rated Clean Sanding Filter Bag and Clean Sanding Hookit™ Pad.
The 3M™ Clean Sanding System™ helps you control this fugitive dust and thus:
Hookit Attachment System for Optimal Performance
- Attain a better finish when the abrasive is kept clean
- Reduce cleanup costs
- Extend abrasive material life
- Reduce buffing and rework
- Maximize your profits

3M™ Hookit™ back-up pads are perfectly mated for use with hook-and-loop style 3M™ Hookit™ sheets. They're ideal for work spaces where adhesive backed discs may become contaminated by dust, dirt, or flying debris. The 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system allows you to easily attach, detach and reattach the abrasive, thus utilizing the entire life of the sheet, resulting in less shop waste.
