Cubitron™ II Technology

Technology: Precision-Shaped Grain Changes the Game
With decades of experience in ceramic, abrasive and microreplication technologies, 3M has literally reinvented abrasives with 3M™ Cubitron™ II Products. Starting with a patented, precision-shaped ceramic abrasive grain, 3M engineers found a way to electrostatically orient each triangular structure to maximise cutting potential. The result: Each individual precision-shaped ceramic grain acts like a cutting tool, slicing through metal like a knife, and continuously self-sharpens as points break off. This allows 3M™ Cubitron™ II Belts, Discs, and Bonded Wheels to run cooler and keep on working—long after conventional abrasives have dulled, shelled, glazed over and been thrown out.



Conventional ceramic abrasive grain is irregular in shape. Instead of a clean, machining action, the grain “plows” through the metal, causing heat build-up, slower cutting and shorter life.



The precision-shaped grain in 3M™ Cubitron™ II grinding wheels continuously fracture to form sharp points and edges – slicing cleaner and faster, staying cooler, and lasting many times longer.
