London, Ontario -- August 25, 2014 -- 3M has announced the launch of a new product, one that the company says is a cutting-edge innovation in abrasive technology, in terms of providing both a faster cut rate and longer functional life.
3M says its new Cubitron II Clean Sanding Hookit Disc is a revolutionary advancement in automotive abrasive technology. It features 3M Precision-Shaped Grain Technology that provides faster cutting for paint removal, the early sanding stage in small or large area body repairs, body filler rough shaping and feather edging and ultimately lasts long and delivers a finer, more uniform finish.
According to 3M, the Cubitron II Clean Sanding Hookit Disc has a cut rate that is as much as 30 percent faster and lasts twice as long as conventional ceramic premium abrasives. This is possible because the discs incorporate triangular-shaped ceramic grain technology that continuously fractures to form sharp points and edges that slice through paint and filler. The technology allows the disc to run cooler, which reduces degradation.
The Cubitron II discs are available in 80+ and 120+ grit for 3-inch, 5-inch and 6-inch sanders, and are designed to work with or without a vacuum system. The â€œ+â€ after the grade indicates a shaped grain that delivers enhanced cut speed, life and finish versus a conventional grain.
â€œAt 3M, we continuously look at how we can apply new technology to make repairs easier and more efficient for body shop professionals,â€ says Denyse Mantha, Marketing Manager for the Abrasives Segment of 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division. â€œWith the development of the 3M Precision-Shaped Grain Technology, we are able to provide an advanced level of performance for body technicians that help them deliver a better, more efficient final repair.â€
