What makes the 3M™ Green Corps™ Hookit™ Disc Dust Free different from other sanding discs?
The 3M™ Green Corps™ Hookit™ Disc Dust Free has a unique design that minimizes dust generated during use, making it much more convenient and cleaner to work with than typical sanding discs.
How long does each disc typically last before needing replacement?
The durability of each disc varies based on usage, but the high quality abrasive minerals used in these discs helps maximize their service life.
Can you tell me more about the dimensions and packaging for this product?
Absolutely! Each carton contains 25 individual sanding discs measuring 8 inches across and grit size is rated at "36". Additionally, every case comes with five cartons of these same sized/specced disks.
Built to withstand the most demanding auto body sanding jobs, the 3M™ Green Corps™ Hookit™ Abrasive Disc 255U is designed with heat-resistant resin bonding. The Hookit™ attachment system allows operators to quickly change out discs during multi-step sanding processes.Superior Dust Resistance
The open coat construction of the abrasive grains in the 3M™ Green Corps™ Hookit™ Abrasive Disc 255U allows dust and debris to collect in the spaces between the grains, preventing the disc from loading. This feature also provides a more aggressive cut than a comparable closed coat abrasive of the same grade, resulting in faster results. Some versions of this disc feature a 7- or 8-hole pattern that helps evacuate dust from the work surface, significantly increasing disc life and maximizing cut-rate.Blended Grain for Better Cut
The 3M™ Ceramic Abrasive Grain is a ceramic mineral designed using a 3M process to enhance the toughness and hardness of the grain. The 3M™ Green Corps™ Hookit™ 255U abrasive discs feature aluminum oxide blended with 3M™ Ceramic Abrasive Grain for increased performance, making it one of the most durable and long-lasting abrasives available. Ceramic abrasives are engineered to cut fast and handle intense heat and stress, making them perfect for moderate to heavy stock removal, sanding, and finishing applications. The ceramic aluminum oxide blend surpasses aluminum oxide abrasives in cut-rate and durability, making this product an excellent choice for sanding metal, plastic, and fiberglass substrates, as well as finishing applications.About the Hookit™ Attachment System
The hook-and-loop style 3M™ Hookit™ discs are ideal for workspaces where adhesive-backed discs may become contaminated by dust, dirt, or flying debris. 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. 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 be used again and again for the extent of the abrasive life.Durable Through and Through
The Green Corps™ Hookit™ Abrasive Disc 255U is built to last, from the grain to the backing to the bonding to the disc pad attachment. This disc is perfect for tough auto body sanding projects, providing top-quality sanding using fewer discs, which is just another way that auto body professionals can get the most from their operations.
