It features a replaceable rubber contact wheel that is designed to provide added flexibility and exert less pressure on the abrasive during use, further lengthening the life of the abrasive belt.About Cubitron™ II Abrasives3M™ Cubitron™ II abrasive products have raised the bar for high-performing abrasives. Engineers started with 3M™ Ceramic Abrasive Grain and used technology to electrostatically orient each triangular structure on the backing to form sharp peaks and maximize cutting potential. These peaks act like individual cutting tools that slice through metal, and continuously shelf-sharpen as the points break off, ensuring extended high performance in heavy-duty production applications. The grains wear evenly and provide extra-long life and consistency with less grinding pressure. The result is that Cubitron™ II products out-cut and outlast every conventional ceramic industrial abrasive product on the market, maximizing productivity and minimizing belt stress and operator fatigue.Better Science for Better Sanding from 3MOur 3M™ File Belt Sanders for Body Repair is part of a complete portfolio of abrasives and tools specifically designed for auto repair.
