The 3M™ Hookit™ Film Disc 360L features an aluminum oxide abrasive grain on a film backing for effective fine sanding on plastics, gel coats and polyurethane solid surface substrates. The sturdy film backing gives the durability needed for a high-production environment, and its excellent resistance to edge tearing provides the life of the disc over discs with standard A-weight paper backings.
- Aluminum oxide abrasive offers a fast cut and long life, and performs well on many surfaces
- Durable film backing is tear-resistant and provides a close-tolerance, consistent finish
- Open coat construction helps reduce loading and provides a more aggressive cut
- 3M™ Hookit™ Disc is easy to change and reuse, maximizing utility for the life of the disc
- Suitable for sanding and finishing on composites, gel coats, fiberglass, and other solid surface materials

What is 3M™ Hookit™ Film Disc 360L?
3M™ Hookit™ Film Disc 360L is an abrasive disc that features our innovative microreplication technology.
What makes it different from other abrasive discs?
The microreplication technology gives the disc a precise, uniform finish and extends its life. It’s perfect for auto body repair, woodworking projects, or any job that requires a high-quality sanding finish.
What are the specs of this particular product option (P240, 5 in x NH, D/F 5HL, Die 500FH)?
This option has a grit rating of P240 for fine sanding applications. It measures five inches by "no hole" (NH) size with a die cut shape and film backing material. The package contains five holes as part of its patented multihole design which maximizes dust extraction while changing abrasives quickly during multi-step finishing processes.
3M™ Hookit™ Film Disc 360L is a versatile product that is perfect for spot repairs, sanding plastic parts, paint feathering on defects, or sanding automotive primer. The film backing provides a close-tolerance, consistent finish, making it an excellent choice for these applications.
To reduce loading on the disc, the 3M™ Hookit™ Film Disc 360L is designed with an open coat construction without a load-resistant stearate coating. The 3M™ Hookit™ hook-and-loop attachment on the backing enables easy re-use so the disc can be used again and again for the life of the product. It attaches to the low-profile 3M™ Hookit™ Disc Pad (sold separately) on a random orbital sander. The Film Disc 360L comes in a range of grades for various applications from fine sanding to finishing.
Aluminum oxide 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.
At 3M, we offer a complete line of hook-and-loop style 3M™ Hookit™ discs for workspaces where adhesive-backed discs may become contaminated by dust, dirt, or flying debris. Hookit sanding discs conveniently and firmly attach to a hook-and-loop backup disc pad (sold separately) on a random orbital sander, can be removed cleanly and easily, and can be re-used again and again for the extent of the abrasive life. They are often used in applications where a 3M™ Stikit™ disc may be too aggressive, as Hookit™ discs tend to leave finer finishes than adhesive-backed discs.
