The 3M™ Hookit™ Microfinishing Film Sheet 268L is a precise micron-grade aluminum oxide abrasive product for use on a variety of substrates such as metal, plastic, and paint spot repair.

Finding a Superior Finish
Our 3M™ Microfinishing Film Sheet 268L is designed for defect repair/leveling, orbital sanding, AOEM finish prep and repair — and prepping metal prior to paint. This product is made of an aluminum oxide mineral that is designed to improve productivity and efficiency by delivering close tolerance precision finishes.

The 3M™ Microfinishing Film Sheet 268L is also water resistant so it can be run with coolant if desired. Coolant is a desirable component of polishing, since it efficiently cools both the work and the abrasive. Adding a lubricant like coolant can help keep this abrasive running cool and cutting sharp while clearing swarf.

Focus on the Task, Not the Tooling with Hookit
This product uses our 3M Hookit™ hook-and-loop attachment system which allows the operator to focus more on the task and less on tooling. 3M™ Hookit™ products, are manufactured with loop material that attaches to a backup pad (sold separately) where tiny hooks firmly engage the loops.

Attachment is quick, easy, and secure during use. Sanding, finishing, and surface conditioning products with the hook-and-loop attachment and removal system are efficient for working through multi-step finishing processes. Abrasive products with a Hookit attachments can be used again and again for the life of the abrasive, unlike pressure-sensitive adhesive attachments.

Collectively, these features make our 268L film sheet an efficient, economical alternative in many applications. Since the introduction of 3M Microfinishing Film decades ago, 3M has continued to provide consistent quality and the highest performance, while adding the features for our customers' benefit.
