What is the purpose of the 3M™ Hookit™ Microfinishing Film Disc 366L, 180 Mic?
The purpose of this product is to offer excellent finishing performance on paint and clear coats.
How durable are these discs?
These microfinishing film discs are very durable as they are made with aluminum oxide mineral abrasive that offers a long-lasting cut.
What does "Type D" mean in the description of this product?
Type D refers to a hook-and-loop attachment system that is used with power tools and allows for fast disc changes.
What other sizes do these discs come in?
Aside from 5 inches x NH size, we also offer them in different diameters ranging from 1 inch up to 8 inches.
Can you tell me more about the Die-500X configuration mentioned in the description?
The die number indicates how many dust holes there are in each disc while '500X' means that there will be no dust extraction. It's perfect for dry sanding applications because it helps keep work surfaces clean by not allowing debris or particles clog inside equipment.
The 3M™ Hookit™ Microfinishing Film Disc 366L is a high-quality abrasive product designed for use with orbital and random orbital sanders. It features precision, micron-graded aluminum oxide, which is a popular choice among industrial professionals because of its fast cut-rate and long life. This mineral makes a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges, whereas traditional natural abrasives dull more quickly. Due to its fast cut-rate, hardness, and strength, it is widely used in grinding applications in addition to sanding and finishing applications. Aluminum oxide is suitable for a wide variety of materials in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys.
These discs feature a load resistant coating to increase efficiency and product life by minimizing loading. The abrasive is resin-bonded and supports disc flexibility without sacrificing durability and reliable performance under high heat and pressure. To complement the effective abrasive action, the polyester film backing flexes to help achieve a consistent finish over contours and offers greater tear-resistance than comparable paper products, making it ideal for high-production environments. And the 3M™ Hookit™ attachment and removal system holds the disc securely during use and provides easy disc change out.
Whether the job requires a random orbital or rotary sander, buffer, grinder, drill, finishing sander or other power tool, hook-and-loop products allow the operator to focus more on the task and less on tooling. Abrasive products with hook-and-loop backing, including 3M™ Hookit™ products, are manufactured with loop material that attaches to a backup pad, sold separately, where tiny hooks firmly engage the loops. Attachment is quick, easy, and secure during use. Sanding, finishing, and surface conditioning products with the hook-and-loop attachment and removal system provide an efficient way to work through multi-step finishing processes and can be used again and again for the life of the abrasive.3M Sanding Discs
3M sanding discs come in a variety of forms to fit various power tools and disc pads. Hook and Loop sanding discs are designed to be used with a random orbital sander, a handheld sanding machine that rotates the disc in a random pattern to prevent swirl marks from forming on the surface of the workpiece. The sander is fitted with a backup pad (sold separately) to which the sanding disc is attached. Hook-and-loop discs are quick and easy to change when switching from one grade to another, and can be reused again and again until worn out; whereas adhesive-backed discs are typically discarded after one use because the adhesive backing will not re-adhere a second time.
