Metalworking Featured Brands

  • 3M™ Cubitron™ II Brand

    Our 3M™ Cubitron™ II abrasives deliver fast cut rates and long service life thanks to the use of 3M Precision-Shaped Grain. As this engineered shaped grain wears, it continuously fractures to form sharp points and edges that slice through metal substrates, delivering fast cutting action compared to conventional abrasives.

  • Scotch-Brite™ Brand

    3M nonwoven technology makes our Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives ideal for finishing, blending, deburring and more. The combination of fiber strands, resin, and abrasive mineral form a thick, open web that resists loading and reveals fresh mineral for exceptional consistency. The spring-like web responds well to contours and effectively removes burrs, soils, and contaminants while maintaining the geometry of the workpiece.

  • 3M™ Trizact™ Brand

    Our 3M™ Trizact™ abrasives feature a surface covering of patterned, micro-replicated structures filled with abrasive grains. As the abrasive is used, the structures wear away, continually exposing fresh mineral. The pattern of these structures also helps prevent loading, leaving room for swarf and dust to be washed away. This ensures a consistent cut rate and finish throughout the long life of the product.
