3M™ Hookit™ Sandpaper Disc features aluminum oxide abrasive grain on a film backing for a fast cut-rate and uniform, close-tolerance finish on wood, paint prep, and defect repair applications. The flexible film backing provides a consistent finish and greater tear-resistance than a comparable paper product, making it well-suited for a high-production environment.
3M™ Hookit™ hook-and-loop attachment works well by enabling easy reuse when switching between grades before the discs are worn out. The open coat feature provides a more aggressive cut than a comparable closed coat abrasive of the same grade. The disc's load-resistant coating reduces the disc's clogging, making this a right choice for woodworking and other applications where loading hinders performance. The disc is designed for use with a random orbital sander. This disc comes in a range of grades for fine sanding and finishing and is resin-bonded for reliable performance under high heat and pressure.
It has an aluminum oxide abrasive, a popular choice among industrial professionals because of its fast cut-rate and long life. This mineral makes a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges, whereas traditional natural abrasives dull more quickly. Due to its fast cut-rate, hardness, and strength, it is widely used in grinding applications in addition to sanding and finishing applications.
Aluminum oxide is suitable for a wide variety of woodworking and metalworking materials, including ferrous alloys. Coated abrasive discs cut better and last longer when the dust isn't clogging the abrasives' cutting surface. Open coat construction means the abrasive grains are placed with space between them to help evacuate sanding dust and other debris to avoid clogging the grains' cutting edge. The load-resistant coating also allows the disc to continue cutting even when sanding softwoods, paints, and other materials that would, otherwise, clog the disc and hinder sanding ability. Additionally, the open coat feature provides a more aggressive cut than a comparable closed coat abrasive of the same grade. All of this adds up to increased productivity and reduced material consumption.
