3M™ Cross Pad 747D is used for polishing of small radii and channels, deburring the ends and insides of tubing, and other special applications. When inserted into a hole or channel, the flexible cross shape conforms to the inside diameter of the workpiece, making this a versatile accessory for your finishing jobs.
- Flexible, cross-shaped sanding pad fits into holes or channels of various sizes
- Abrasive is bonded to heavy, X-weight cotton cloth backing for durability during sanding
- Ceramic aluminum oxide blended mineral breaks down to reveal sharp cutting edges
- Durable resin bond resists deterioration from heat, extending the life of the cross pad
- Cross pad attaches to a compatible mandrel (sold separately) for use with a die grinder

Designed for Tough Jobs
The 3M™ Cross Pad 747D is a versatile tool that can be used for both grinding and polishing applications. Its X-weight cloth backing provides support for tough jobs, while its closed coat of aluminum oxide abrasive is secured with a heat-resistant resin bond. This cross pad is ideal for polishing or deburring tasks and can be attached to a threaded mandrel (sold separately) that can be used with a die grinder or power drill. The mandrel and cross pad combination allows users to grind or finish the inner contours of various-sized channels. The maximum RPM of the pad depends on its size.
Blended Materials that Stay Sharp
The 3M™ Cross Pad 747D is covered with a blend of ceramic and aluminum oxide mineral, which enhances the toughness and hardness of the grain. Ceramic abrasives are engineered to fracture frequently for a super-fast cut and can handle intense heat and stress applications, making them perfect for stock removal. The ceramic/aluminum oxide blend surpasses aluminum oxide abrasives in cut-rate and durability, making the 3M™ Cross Pad 747D an excellent choice for moderate stock removal and surface preparation.
High Quality Construction
The abrasive grains of the 3M™ Cross Pad 747D are attached to the pad using an anti-friction resin bonding material, which helps the abrasive run smoothly over the workpiece. A grinding aid coating is also added to help the abrasive stay cool during grinding, minimizing heat and improving abrasive performance. This attribute, combined with the semi-flexible X-weight backing, make this pad a good match for projects that require a strong sanding tool that can be used with minimal space or leverage.
