What is the 3M™ Portable Utility Cloth Roll 314D made of?
The 3M™ Portable Utility Cloth Roll 314D is made of aluminum oxide abrasive grain and a durable cloth backing.
How long does each roll last?
The durability of each roll depends on the application, but they are designed to last longer than traditional emery cloth.
What does the "P60 X-weight" mean?
P60 refers to the grit size or coarseness, with P being medium and numbers increasing as it gets finer. X-weight refers to the strength of the cloth backing, which is heavy duty for applications that require sanding pressure.
How many rolls come in a case?
Each case contains five rolls of 3M™ Portable Utility Cloth Roll 314D, providing value and convenience for your sanding needs.
The sanding strip is a versatile product that can be torn from the roll to fit specific applications. Most grades have a light, J-weight cloth backing that allows for flexibility when sanding circular edges, angles, or other contours. For more coarse sanding applications, rolls in grades P50 or P60 have a slightly stiffer X-weight backing. The cloth backing remains durable even when bent or rolled, without tearing or shelling. Additionally, strips can be torn by hand when a smaller piece is needed, without compromising the sanding surface.
Aluminum oxide is a popular choice among industrial professionals due to its fast cut-rate and long life. This mineral creates a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges, unlike traditional natural abrasives that dull more quickly. Aluminum oxide abrasive is suitable for a wide variety of materials in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys. It can be used on ferrous and non-ferrous metals, wood, and plastic.
