3M™ Trizact™ Hookit™ Film Disc 268XA is manufactured using proprietary micro-replication technology where micron-graded aluminum oxide particles are formed into tiny pyramids of abrasive mineral and then coated on a film backing. As these pyramids wear, fresh, sharp mineral is continually exposed to produce a consistent cut and a predictable, fine finish.
- Proprietary 3M™ Trizact™ abrasives start sharp and stay sharp, resulting in more predictable finishes and improved, consistent results
- Creates high gloss level for glass defect repair and solid surface finishing
- Micron sized abrasive pyramids produce a high-gloss finish
- Well suited for use on mini random orbital sanders to produce a polish-ready finish
- Produces finer finishes than paper and film-backed abrasives
What makes the 3M™ Trizact™ Hookit™ Film Disc 268XA different from other sanding discs?
The 3M™ Trizact™ Hookit™ Film Disc 268XA uses a unique pyramid-shaped abrasive grain that continually fractures during use, creating new cutting edges. This results in consistent performance throughout the life of the disc and reduced heat buildup on your work surface.
How do I know which grit to choose for my project?
The A5 grit of our Trizact disc is equivalent to P3000, making it ideal for final finishing and polishing applications on automotive paints and clear coats. However, you may want to consult with a professional or review product information to determine which grit will best suit your needs depending on material type and desired finish.
Can these discs be used with any sander?
Our Hookit attachment system means this film disc can be easily attached or removed from most hand-held random orbital sanders without tools. Check compatibility before use if unsure or refer to equipment manufacturer guidelines for details on compatible sanders.
Compared to conventional abrasive products, 3M™ Trizact™ abrasives offer a finer finish, faster results, and longer-lasting performance. The 3M™ Trizact™ Hookit™ Film Disc 268XA is a versatile option suitable for use on a variety of solid surfaces and topcoats, accommodating most finish and process requirements. It features the 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system, allowing for quick mounting and removal and secure placement during use. Hookit™ discs attach firmly to a hook-and-loop backup disc pad (sold separately) on rotary or random orbital tools, can be removed cleanly and easily, and can be re-used for the life of the disc. This disc can be used wet or dry.
3M™ Trizact™ discs differ from conventional abrasives in that they start sharp and stay sharp, resulting in more predictable finishes and improved, consistent quality. They are designed to last longer than conventional discs and provide precise finish control, reducing grade sequences and requiring fewer process steps and abrasive products. Three-dimensional structures uniformly distributed over the entire surface ensure consistent performance and eliminate disc-to-disc variation.
The 3M™ Trizact™ Hookit™ Film Disc 268XA uses an aluminum oxide abrasive mineral. Aluminum oxide is a popular choice among industrial professionals due to its cut-rate and long life. This mineral is a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges in use, whereas traditional abrasives, such as garnet, quickly wear down with use. Due to its high cut-rate, hardness, strength, and low heat retention, aluminum oxide mineral is widely used in grinding applications in addition to sanding and finishing use. Aluminum oxide is suitable on a wide variety of substrates in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys.
