A Tough Sanding Sheet for Tough Surfaces

Built to withstand the most demanding auto body sanding jobs, the 3M™ Green Corps™ Hookit™ Abrasive Sheet 255U is designed with a sharp, tough blended grain and durable D and E weight paper. The paper is resin bonded for heat resistance during sanding of flat or difficult surfaces. The 3M Hookit™ attachment system allows operators to quickly change out sheets during multi-step sanding processes.

Superior Dust Resistance

The open coat construction of the abrasive sheet allows the abrasive grains to be spaced so that dust and debris can collect in the spaces rather than loading the sheet. This feature provides a more aggressive cut than a comparable closed coat abrasive of the same grade, resulting in faster results. Some versions of this sheet feature an 18-hole pattern that helps evacuate dust from the work surface, dramatically increasing the life of the sheet and maximizing cut-rate.

Blended Grain for Better Cut

The 3M™ Ceramic Abrasive Grain is a ceramic mineral designed using a 3M process to enhance the toughness and hardness of the grain. The 3M™ Green Corps™ Hookit™ 255U abrasive sheets feature aluminum oxide blended with 3M™ Ceramic Abrasive Grain for one of the most durable, longest-lasting abrasives available. Ceramic abrasives are engineered to cut fast and handle intense heat and stress, making them perfect for moderate to heavy stock removal as well as sanding and finishing applications. The ceramic aluminum oxide blend surpasses aluminum oxide abrasives in cut-rate and durability, making this sheet an excellent choice for sanding metal, plastic, and fiberglass substrates as well as finishing applications.

About the Hookit™ Attachment System

Hook-and-loop style 3M™ Hookit™ sheets are ideal for workspaces where adhesive-backed sheets may become contaminated by dust, dirt, or flying debris. Hookit™ abrasive sheets conveniently and firmly attach to a hook-and-loop air file shoe or hand file board (sold separately), can be removed cleanly and easily, and be used again and again for the extent of the abrasive life.

Durable Through and Through

From grain to backing to bonding to disc pad attachment, the Green Corps™ Hookit™ Abrasive Disc 255U is built for long life – even for tough auto body sanding projects. Top quality sanding using fewer discs is just another way that 3M helps auto body professionals get the most from their operations.
