Product Details

Cubitron™ II Fibre Disc 987C

The Cubitron II range of Fibre Discs are made with precision shaped ceramic grain technology. Designed with ultra-sharp, fast-cutting points that wear evenly. The disk runs cool and optimises mineral breakdown to maximise disc life. Delivering better productivity, disc life and grinding speed.

Outstanding Cutting Performance

Designed for applications such as weld grinding, bevelling, flame-cut, edge clean-up and deburring

The 987C disc contains 3M Precision Shaped Grain which forms into triangularly shaped grains and electrostatically positioned onto the backing. The grains then act as individual cutting tools, reducing metal discolouration with extreme efficiency. The disc is worn evenly and continuously self sharpens until the points break off. This reduces the heat build-up due to friction and extends the life of the disc.

Using the 3M™ Cubitron™ II 987C outperforms conventional ceramic discs by staying cooler on heat sensitive metals. This fibre wheel is well-suited to edge chamfering, machining grooves, removing steel welds and more.

Features and Benefits

Engineered to cut faster and last longer than competitive ceramic products

Stiff fibre backing and strong resin bond provide durability and tear resistance during heavyweight applications

Contains 3M Precision Shaped Grain which runs significantly cooler and longer than rival products, completing more parts per disc for fewer disc changes

Incorporated grinding aid reduces grinding temperatures on heat sensitive alloys, increasing longevity

Rigid hub offers firm support to fibre disc face plate

Buy disc pad face plates and fibre discs separately

Typical Applications

These heavy-duty fibre discs are great for weld removals, grinding and blending large and small metal areas. This could occur in industries such as farm and construction, automotive, ship and boat building, metal fabrication.
