Technology: Precision-Shaped Grain Changes the Game
With decades of experience in ceramic, abrasive and microreplication 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 maximise 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.
