3M Steel Cutting Discs
Our 3M™ Cut-Off Wheels are engineered for tough cutting applications such as rod or pipe cutting. Quality abrasive grains are bonded together into a rigid, fibre-reinforced wheel that cuts with ease and can be used again and again. We recommend these wheels for a variety of industrial applications on carbon steel, stainless steel (inox), mild steel, stone (as per label), fiberglass and more.
3M™ Cutting & Grinding Discs
With decades of experience in ceramic, abrasive and micro replication technologies, 3M has literally reinvented abrasives with 3M™ Cubitron™ II Products. Starting with a patented, precision-shaped ceramic abrasive grain, 3M engineers found a way to electrostatically orient each triangular structure to maximize cutting potential. The result: Each individual precision-shaped ceramic grain acts like a cutting tool, slicing through metal like a knife, and continuously self-sharpens as points break off. This allows 3M™ Cubitron™ II Belts, Discs, and Bonded Wheels to run cooler and keep on working—long after conventional abrasives have dulled, shelled, glazed over and been thrown out.
3M Foam Tape
3M Foam Tape is a versatile adhesive tape that protects against moisture, dust, noise, vibration, and impact. 3M Single Coated Foam Tapes provide strips of foam in a roll with a high strength acrylic adhesive on one side. The urethane foam seals, cushions, dampen sound, and absorb vibration.
