Conventional Abrasives | 3M Precision Grinding and Finishing

Durability and precision are crucial in the gear, turbine and powertrain markets. For many in these industries conventional bonded abrasives with ceramic, aluminum oxide or silicon carbide mineral can serve as a precise and cost-effective solution. 3M offers a wide range of custom conventional abrasives for precision grinding, microfinishing and every process step in-between.

  • Featured Technology: 3M Precision-Shaped Grain

    3M Precision-Shaped Grain is the revolutionary technology behind our 3M™ Cubitron™ II abrasives. The uniformly sized triangles of ceramic aluminum oxide are designed to fracture as they wear, continually forming sharp points and edges that slice cleanly through metal. These sharp cutting edges use less energy than traditional ceramic wheels, while diverting heat away from the workpiece. These free-cutting properties, combined with superior service life, can help improve efficiency and drive down costs.
