3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 984F offers revolutionary performance with 3M Precision-Shaped Grain on a YF-weight polyester cloth backing. This high-performing belt contains a grinding aid, making it ideal for medium to high pressure applications on stainless steel and other exotic alloys, along with carbon steel, cobalt chrome, and nickel alloys.
- 3M Precision-Shaped Grain continuously fractures into sharp points that cut exceptionally fast, helping increase productivity
- Engineered to run cooler, reducing metal discoloration/oxidation and the chance of heat related stress cracks
- Reduces changeouts and downtime in robotic and pressure-assisted applications
- Belt life is significantly longer, producing more parts per belt and requiring fewer belt changes
- YF-weight backing excels in medium/high pressure stainless, cobalt chrome and nickel alloy applications

What's the advantage of using 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 984F compared to other ordinary abrasive belts?
The primary advantage of our CubitronTM II Cloth Belt is its precision-shaped grain. It ensures faster and consistent cutting, with less heat build-up or glazing, eliminating the need for frequent belt changeovers.
Can you explain YF-Weight in the description?
Sure thing! "Y" indicates that it is suitable for heavy cutting applications while "F" refers to a Zirconia-Alumina mineral blend employed in this belt grade. Its high mineral content delivers an extended service life making it ideal for demanding metal grinding operations.
How long will these belts last upon repeated use?
That depends on various factors like machine speed, material being cut/grinded as well as the level of pressure applied during operations. However, due to their enhanced durability and wear resistance owing to our proprietary ceramic technology- they can outlast conventional abrasive counterparts up to twice as many times under normal working conditions!
The 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 984F is designed for use in industrial environments. Its ceramic grain provides an exceptionally fast cut and long life, making it ideal for heavy-duty applications. Additionally, it is heat resistant and produces a uniform finish over the life of the product. This belt also helps eliminate burning during end-grain sanding applications. The YF-weight cloth backing provides durability, and the mineral is resin bonded to the backing for reliable performance – even under high heat and pressure.Ideal for Robotic Grinding and Degating
For medium and high-pressure applications like robotic grinding, the 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 984F is an ideal choice. Its fast-cutting, long-lasting ceramic grain continually fractures into sharp edges to keep cutting through the life of the belt. This reduces changeouts and downtime in robotic cells, maximizing the efficiency of the cell and allowing for more parts to be produced per belt.A Leader in High-Performing Abrasives
3M™ Cubitron™ II products are known for their high-performing abrasives. The proprietary ceramic abrasive grain used in these products is electrostatically oriented to form sharp peaks and maximize cutting potential. These peaks act like individual cutting tools that slice through metal and continuously shelf-sharpen as the points break off, ensuring extended high performance in heavy-duty production applications. The grains wear evenly and provide extra-long life and consistency with less grinding pressure. Cubitron™ II products outcut and outlast every conventional ceramic industrial abrasive product on the market, maximizing productivity and minimizing belt stress.Belts with Fabric Splice
The 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 984F comes with a fabric splice for added strength when grinding in medium to high pressure applications.
