• Engineered to cut faster and last longer than competitive ceramic products

• 3M Precision Shaped Grain self-sharpens, runs cool and optimises mineral breakdown for extra-long life

• Rigid, reinforced resin-bonded wheel slices through almost all materials including stainless steel, mild steel, and aerospace alloys

• Wheel must have a maximum operating speed greater than or equal to the maximum speed of the power tool used

Applications

Grinding and cut-off discs are designed to be fitted to angle grinders. Handheld angle grinders are a highly versatile tool, and are ideal for machining metal. These cut off discs are great for weld removals and cutting through metals like stainless steel, mild steel, aerospace alloys and more. This could occur in industries such as farm and construction, automotive, ship and boat building, aerospace, metal fabrication.

FAQ

Would you be able to use these discs on wood?

These 3M Silver discs are not recommended to be used on wood, and are designed to be used on metals.

What's the difference between 3M™ Silver Cut Off Discs and 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cut Off Discs?

Is there a difference between cutting and grinding discs?

Yes, the thickness of the discs are different, with cutting discs being thinner than grinding discs. Cuttings generally don't have adequate lateral strength for side grinding.

Can you use metal cutting discs on masonry applications?

No, masonry applications would need a separate disc. Metals cutting discs are usually made from aluminium oxide particles, while masonry cutting discs are made from silicon carbide.

What safety requirements should I observe?

When grinding metal or sanding, appropriate personal protection equipment should be worn. Gloves, eye protection and even respiratory protection are essential PPE for general purpose grinding and polishing applications.
