The 3M™ Flexible Diamond PSA Cloth Sheet 6008J was designed to tackle extremely hard-to-grind materials like stone, glass, ceramic, carbide and composites. The diamond mineral and semi-flexible backing makes this abrasive a good match for grinding, finish sanding, and contour finishing applications.
3M™ Flexible Diamond products are designed to help you achieve improved finishes on a wide range of hard-to-grind materials — without sacrificing cut rates
Durability and Long Life
Flexible diamond products
(PDF, 1.95 Mb), including 3M™ Flexible Diamond PSA Cloth Sheet 6008J, are designed to help you achieve improved finishes on a wide range of hard-to-grind materials — without sacrificing cut rates. A metal bond securely anchors micron-graded diamonds to a premium flexible backing in an open dot pattern. This provides durability and long life, while allowing conformance to a variety of contours. In addition, the open dot pattern produces aggressive cutting action while reducing loading. Sheets are a handy solution for manual sanding with a sanding block and provide easy application to a backup pad.
Use for a Variety of Metalworking Applications
3M™ Flexible Diamond PSA Cloth Sheet 6008J is commonly used for a variety of hard to grind materials. It's uniquely suited for contour finishing, because the flexible backing enables the sheet to move over the surface.
These diamond abrasive sheets are equipped with a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) to provide ease of use when attaching to the tool. The PSA backing works much like a sticker, whereby operators can stick the disc to the tool by applying light pressure, and this swift tool attachment helps enhance productivity and throughput. The PSA attachment holds the adhesive securely in place and lays flat for a finer result.
3M™ Flexible Diamond PSA Cloth Sheet 6008J comes in three patterns: 18, B2 and 21
3M™ Flexible Diamond PSA Cloth Sheet 6008J comes in three patterns: 18, B2 and 21. Here's how to distinguish between the three.18 is a small-dot pattern, designed for fine finishes. B2 is a medium-dot pattern designed for aggressive cutting action and has improved coolant flow, given the spacing of the dots. 21 is the largest dot pattern and it's ideal for applications where loading is a problem; gaps allow swarf and debris to escape. Generally, larger dot patterns are more aggressive and will perform better in stock removal applications, whereas the smaller dot patterns will produce finer finishes, grade for grade.
