3M™ Cloth RXC Unslashed Segment 261E is an abrasive metalworking wheel attachment constructed on a durable, Y-weight cloth backing that features closed coat construction for consistent sanding action. The aluminum oxide abrasive and strong backing make this cloth an ideal product for dry applications such as finishing, surface dimensioning and defect removal.
3M™ Cloth RXC Unslashed Segment 261E is best suited for metal grinding and finishing due to its durability and fast-cutting abrasive material. When attached to the slots of a 3M™ RX Hub to assemble a flap wheel its strong, Y-weight rayon cloth backing provides smooth operation and durability, and can conform to the shape of contoured parts for consistent finishing and dimensioning. The abrasive side features a closed coat of aluminum oxide grains, which means that the grain is spread densely across the surface the cloth segment. This provides a fast cut for aggressive use and a fine finish for users looking to create a specific grain pattern.
Aluminum Oxide Abrasive
Aluminum oxide 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. This allows aluminum oxide abrasives to deliver consistent performance over a long lifespan. Due to its fast cut-rate, hardness, and strength, it is widely used for grinding and finishing applications. Aluminum oxide is suitable for use on a wide variety of materials in metalworking and woodworking.
Heat Resistant for Fast Cutting Action
This unslashed cloth segment also uses a resin bonding which is specially designed to resist thermal and chemical deterioration, which can occur during aggressive grinding. This bond is very tough and excellent for precision work on hard and soft surfaces. This also allows for faster sanding and a higher cut-rate.
