3M Xtract™ Paper Disc 216U features a 3M proprietary multi-hole pattern for improved dust extraction in finishing applications. Part of the 3M Xtract™ Series, designed for optimal dust removal. This innovative multi-hole pattern extracts dust better than 5- or 6-hole products — increasing cut and dramatically increasing disc life. The design does not need to align with the disc pad holes, making switching the discs fast, easy and convenient. Advanced Series Abrasives from 3M are designed to deliver an unbeatable combination of performance and value. Open coat construction and a load-resistant coating further prevent clogging.

Built Built for Efficient Finishing
3M Xtract™ Paper Disc 216U is constructed of aluminum oxide and is suitable for finishing applications on wood as well as primer, paint, sealers, topcoats, fiberglass, and plastics. The 3M™ Hookit™ (hook & loop) attachment system makes disc changes fast and easy, meaning the disc can be used again and again for the extent of the abrasive life.

The Benefits of Aluminum Oxide
3M chose aluminum oxide abrasive, which is a popular choice among industrial professionals because of its fast cut-rate and long life. This mineral makes a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges in use, whereas traditional abrasives such as garnet quickly wear down with use. Due to their fast cut-rate, hardness, and strength, they are widely used in sanding and finishing applications. Aluminum oxide is suitable for a wide variety of materials in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys.

Efficient Dust Extraction
Sandpaper discs cut better and last longer when dust isn't loading the cutting surface of the abrasives. Reducing dust is easier than ever with 3M Xtract™ Discs, designed for optimal dust removal. For maximum dust extraction, use this disc with a 3M Xtract™ Hookit™ Back-up Pad and a random orbital sander with vacuum (both sold separately). The 3M proprietary multi-hole pattern on 3M Xtract™ products removes dust at a higher rate than 5- or 6-hole products. This proprietary multi-hole pattern evacuates dust from the disc at a high rate. This hole design doesn't even require alignment of holes with the disc pad (which is attached to a random orbital sander and sold separately), making disc changes quick and simple. The 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system uses a hook and loop design that makes disc changes fast and easy. All of this adds up to improved productivity and reduced material consumption.
