The 3M™ Cubitron II Abrasive Belt 947A built with 3M™ Precision-Shaped Grain cuts metal dramatically faster and cooler, and stays sharp longer than conventional ceramic belts. Its X-weight poly-cotton backing is flexible. This belt is optimized for low and medium pressure applications on stainless steel, mild steels, and aluminum.
- 3M Precision-Shaped Grain slices through metals like a knife rather than gouging or plowing
- Removes material faster, with less pressure
- Includes a grinding aid for less grinding friction and cooler cutting
- Cool cutting action lessens the risk of heat-related damage to workpiece
- An X-weight poly-cotton backing is optimized for flexibility
- Lasts up to 4 times longer than conventional ceramic belts

What is the 3M™ Cubitron™ ll Cloth Belt?
The 3M™ Cubitron™ ll Cloth Belt is an abrasive belt that is designed to offer superior performance, long life, and fast cutting action.
What makes the Cubitron technology better than other products available in the market?
The Cubitron technology uses precisely-shaped, uniformly-sized ceramic grains that continually fracture as they wear. This ensures consistent performance throughout the life of the belt.
Can you describe what X-weight means in this product description for me?
Sure! In this context, X-weight refers to the weight of the cloth backing on which ceramic particles have been attached. In this case, it's a sturdy and robust cloth material best suited for heavy-duty sanding applications.
Could you explain Fabri-lok and Single-flex as they are included in product terminology here?
Certainly! Fabri-lok represents how each belt has interlocking joints that extend its service life beyond those with conventional overlaps while single-flex indicates flexibility of providing good contact between work surface and sanding belt without unintentional compressions due to use intensification.
:What quantity do these come packaged/recommended selling method/is there any discount if buying larger quantities?
:This particular model comes packaged at 50 per inner packagings organization with four such packages making up one case ie a total quantity of two hundred belts seem most adequate on commercial scales.If larger volumes are considered specific discounts maybe permissible but please check with our authorized retailers or distributors allowing greater versatility of options concerning your selection based on local criteria
A closed coat and a grinding aid make our 3M™ Cubitron II Abrasive Belt 947A an outstanding option for low to medium pressure applications on heat sensitive metals. The nature of the abrasive structure diverts heat to the swarf, keeping both belt and workpiece cooler. It is now available in grades 40+ (make to order), 60+, 80+ and now 120+ adding an improved solution for finer finishing applications.Cutting Edge Performance for Low and Medium Pressure Sanding
A semi flexible Cubitron II belt the 3M™ 947A sports an X-weight poly-cotton backing. Among backing weights, an X-weight cloth is flexible and provides tensile strength as well. A great number of small belt sizes which are nimble and maneuverable so operators can get in, over and around intricate parts. These belts are good options for low-and-medium-pressure offhand operations for use on the following equipment:
- File Belt Sanders
- Inline Sanders
- Stroke Sanders
3M Precision-Shaped Grain is designed to continuously fracture to form sharp points and edges that easily "slice" through metal. It cuts faster, lasts longer and stays cooler. Conventional ceramic abrasive grain tends to "plow" through the metal, causing heat to build up in the workpiece and the abrasive – resulting in a slower cut, shorter belt life and undesirable effects, such as burnishing.3M Science. The Beginning of Cubitron II.
In 2009, 3M scientists had long believed abrasives would work better if each grain of the ceramic abrasive material was exactly the same size and shape. It would act more like a knife shaving off material and less like a plow bouncing along the surface, creating heat damage. The breakthrough came when they realized they could use microreplication technology 3M was already using to create reflective material for signs, and other purposes. Within a short time, they had created 3M's Precision Shaped Grain — identical triangular-shaped abrasive grains electrostatically oriented and distributed uniformly on an abrasive backing. The end result is faster, cooler cutting action, improved productivity, less operator fatigue and longer belt life.
