Product Details

3M™ Silver Cut-Off Wheel T41/T42

The 3M™ Silver Cut Off disc is constructed using 3M Precision Shaped Ceramic Grain. It delivers an unbeatable combination of performance and value. Specially designed to be used on metals, these high-quality cutting discs deliver outstanding cutting performance.

The cut off disc features 3M Precision Shaped Grain which forms into triangularly shaped grains that are electrostatically positioned onto the backing. The grains then act as individual cutting tools, reducing metal discoloration with extreme efficiency. It allows the disc to last significantly longer than conventional grain abrasives while maintaining a high cut through rate.

These discs are great for a number of metalworking applications, such as weld removal, beveling, chamfering and more. Offering faster and consistent cuts through pipes, tubes and sheets, its a disc you can rely on for your toughest cutting jobs.

Applications

Cut off discs, sometimes referred to as cutting discs or cutting wheels, 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. They are typically used with angle grinders or disc cutters, offering portable solutions for cutting through many different types of material, depending on the construction of the cust.

Cutting discs are not to be confused with grinding discs, as using the wrong grade of disc for grinder applications can result in damage to you tools and in extreme cases damage to your person.
