Highlights
  • Macroreplicated abrasive "bricks" contain multiple layers of abrasive mineral, "channels" help remove swarf and keep work surfaces cleaner
  • Controlled mineral breakdown delivers more consistent, predictable finishes over the life of the abrasive
  • Durable X-weight cloth backing is semi-flexible to conform to contours

3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Roll 337DC delivers consistently in intermediate to final finish, medium pressure applications. Designed with aluminum oxide and a grinding aid on a durable X- weight cloth backing, this roll is available in grades from A300 to A30.

Long Life, Sustained Cut, Consistent Performance
Our 3M™ Trizact™ Cloth Roll 337DC owes its durability and extremely consistent and sustained cut rate to its uniquely engineered "bricks and channels" macroreplicated abrasive structure. Uniform abrasive "bricks" keep fresh cutting mineral constantly at the working surface and "channels" sweep debris away to discourage loading and keep the substrate clean.

The "bricks" consist of layers of mineral and grinding aid, up to 4 times as much as aluminum oxide mineral of the same grade. These dense layers of abrasive mineral lead to extra-long life and extremely consistent performance. The grinding aid protects heat-sensitive alloys from damage and reducing rework.

Trizact abrasives start sharp and stay sharp. The consistent cut they deliver can often consolidate or eliminate process steps.

Microreplication: Engineering Surface Geometry
Building upon the principles of microreplication, 3M scientists developed larger, more elaborate abrasive structures -- Macroreplication -- pyramids, cubes, spheres, ridges, identical in shape and optimized for a variety of applications. Microreplication allows 3M to design abrasives with varying shapes and formulations, to control the level of breakdown, cut, finish and life.

These abrasive structures are arrayed precisely and uniformly across a film or cloth backing in a pattern calculated to deliver sustained cut rate and eliminate roll-to-roll variation.

Made to Tackle Difficult Metals
Trizact was developed especially for finishing more difficult processing materials like titanium, cobalt, stainless steel, as well as other exotic alloys in the aerospace, aviation and medical industries.

Originally designed for intermediate finishing applications -- removing slight defects from orthopedic medical implant devices and blending finishes on cast or forged turbine blades -- Trizact 337DC's more consistent cut and longer life in demanding applications make possible more efficient manufacturing processes and lower cost of operation in many metalworking applications.

3M Science. Applied to Creating More Perfect Surfaces.
Microreplication is only one of 3M's platform of core technologies. Perfectly calibrated arrays are designed to give materials new physical, chemical, or optical properties. The science that makes 3M's structured abrasives wear more evenly, last longer and provide more pristine finishes on delicate components like medical implants is also the science that makes traffic signs brighter, and exterior building illumination capture and reflect light more brilliantly.
