3M™ Cubitron™ Abrasive Grain 

3M™ Cubitron™ Abrasive Grain is a chemically engineered ceramic aluminium oxide mineral that has a unique “stay sharp” crystalline structure, which continually reveals fresh cutting edges on the surface of the work piece ensuring a sustained cut and longer product life. This durable, cost-effective abrasive solution delivers real productivity benefits across an operation without the premature dulling associated with traditional abrasives.

Formulated for durability and long life
Engineered to stay sharp
Designed for thermal stability

Technology Explained
3M™ Cubitron™ is a sol gel mineral that sharpens as it wears.

  • Initial grinding breaks away small edges of the grain
  • Sustained grinding form micro fractures, which break-off, to create fresh sharp edges
  • This is a continuous process throughout the grinding operation to ensure long-term efficiency and increasing return on investment (ROI)


3M™ Cubitron™ Coated Abrasive Belt 987FI
3M™ Cubitron™ Coated Abrasive Belt 987FI is a new resin system that optimizes the orientation of the abrasive grain to produce a sharp, aggressive cut and improve productivity (lower cost per part). Its unique supersize coating resists heat build up assuring cooler running and reducing operator fatigue.

3M™ 980CP Fiber Discs

3M introduces the next generation Fiber Disc – 980CP, with the new Cubitron™ performance grains, which makes light work of heavy duty jobs. The 3M patented Cubitron grains give cooler performance, with extremely fast cut rates – which means no discolored surfaces. These discs come with the latest generation grain technology and can be used for weld grinding and blending.


3M™ Green Corps™ Flexible Grinding Discs
3M™ Cubitron™ Abrasive Grain increases efficiency and performs harder than regular minerals, providing a higher cut rate compared to standard grinding discs. The flexible construction in conjunction with the backing plate means less vibration and noise than a conventional grinding disc. 3M™ Green Corps™ Flexible Grinding Discs are easy to use, provides lower vibration levels and reduces chatter – ensuring a better finish that is more easily blended.
