Behind the Brand: 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives

  • Featuring precisely-shaped, three-dimensional abrasive structures, our 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives are ideal for work where consistent, refined finishes are essential. 3M microreplication technology makes Trizact more consistent and uniform than any conventional abrasive. Trizact also runs cooler vs. conventional abrasives – excellent for grinding, and for working with substrates that can easily discolor. Micron-graded mineral abrasives can help you achieve fine finishes even to tough surfaces like stainless steel, chromium, nickel and cobalt-based materials. What’s more, 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives continually expose fresh cutting surfaces as they wear. The results are unmistakable: higher productivity, longer abrasive life, lower and more consistent reject rates, and uniformly smooth and refined finishes.

Applications for 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives

  • 3M microreplication technology delivers a truly indispensable advantage in metalworking: consistency, part after part and job after job. 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives are available for processes from scale removal to intermediate finishing to fine polishing prior to buffing or plating. Cool-running Trizact delivers refined performance even on hard metals such as carbon or stainless steel, and helps reduce warping and discoloration. And the mineral abrasive stays sharp as it wears, helping operators reduce grade sequences.

  • 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives are ideal for every stage of auto paint finishing work. The fast, consistent cut of 3M™ Trizact™ abrasive discs and sheets is excellent for the crucial defect removal and scratch refinement processes in auto repair. 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives work extremely well with 3M™ Perfect-It™ liquid abrasives for compounding, polishing and swirl elimination to 5000+. In many cases, they can even help you skip stages altogether for high-gloss, deep-color paint finishes in less time with lower material costs.

Why 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives?

No matter what the challenge in finishing work – more consistent results, lower material costs, faster production – our selection of 3M™ Trizact™ abrasive sheets, discs, belts and wheels can refine your entire operation.

    Consistency from Start to Finish

    3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives are the only industrial abrasives to feature 3M microreplication technology: precisely-shaped, three-dimensional mineral structures distributed uniformly over the abrasive backing.

    This evenly-spaced configuration results in truly consistent performance – disc after disc, belt after belt, part after part and job after job – that you won’t get from any non-microreplicated abrasive.

    Starts Sharp, Stays Sharp Longer

    Conventional abrasives start out sharp, but dull quickly during use.

    As the mineral structures in 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives wear, fresh, sharp mineral is exposed, keeping them sharper for longer periods vs. conventional abrasives. This results in a faster cut and longer abrasive life.
