Abrasives for Collision Repair

Effective grinding, cutting, finishing and more from 3M

The Continuing Standard in Automotive Abrasives

  • 3M invented Wetordry™ – the first sandpaper developed specifically for automotive applications – in the early 1920s. To this day, we have led the market in abrasives for auto body repair with introductions such as our well-known Green Corps™ brand of ceramic abrasives and Roloc™ attachment for efficient cutting and grinding. Today we feature world-class brands such as Cubitron™ II, Trizact™ and Scotch-Brite™. We provide a full abrasive range, including Purple, Blue, Gold and Red abrasives to quickly match our solutions with your repair jobs. It’s all part of a complete and always expanding selection of 3M abrasive discs, abrasive sheets, cut-off wheels, belts and much more for increased efficiency at every stage of body repair.

Product Spotlight – 3M™ Cubitron™ II Abrasives

  • Cubitron II's family of PSG Abrasive Discs, Wheels, Belts

    These best-in-class abrasives feature our Precision-Shaped Grain (PSG), the most advanced abrasive technology in the collision repair industry. 3M employs microreplication technology to create uniformly-sized and precisely-shaped ceramic mineral into triangular structures. These grains are electrostatically oriented at exact intervals on the abrasive surface. The result is an abrasive that cuts 30% faster and lasts twice as long as conventional ceramic abrasives. 3M offers Cubitron II products for auto body repair jobs from cutting and grinding to finish sanding.
