Achieve Close-Tolerance Finishes
Our 3M™ Microfinishing Film 268L was designed to enable operators to achieve precise, controlled, close-tolerance finishes on surfaces from metals to plastics to wood. This product features precision, micron-graded aluminum oxide, resin-bonded to a high-strength, resilient polyester film backing. Aluminum oxide is desirable among industrial professionals for its fast cut-rate and long life.

Available in a wide variety of grades, operators should consider target tolerances when selecting the right microfinishing film. This film comes in a number of converted forms including sheets, discs and non-standard sizes and in three attachment types.

Our 3M™ Microfinishing Film 268L was designed to enable operators to achieve precise, controlled, close-tolerance finishes on surfaces from metals to plastics to wood.
Run It Wet or Dry
Coolant generally extends abrasive life, increases cut rate and prevents loading. The high- strength, bare-film backing maintains its strength and flexibility when paper or cloth will degrade when run wet.
