The product includes 50 pads per inner and there are a total of 100 pads per case.
What kind of abrasive can I expect from the pad's X-weight designation?
. The "X-weight" indicates that this pad uses ceramic aluminum oxide mineral abrasive, which makes it ideal for tough grinding applications.
The 3M™ Cross Pad 341D is a versatile abrasive tool that supports both grinding and polishing applications. Its X-weight cloth backing provides a sturdy foundation for a closed coat of aluminum oxide abrasive, which is secured with a heat-resistant resin bond. This cross pad is an excellent choice for close-tolerance polishing or deburring tasks.
To use the 3M™ Cross Pad 341D, simply attach it to a threaded mandrel (sold separately) that can be connected to a rotary tool like a die grinder or drill. This combination allows you to grind or finish the inner contours of channels of various sizes. The maximum RPM depends on the size of the pad.
Aluminum oxide is a popular choice among industrial professionals because of its fast cut-rate and long life. This mineral creates a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges, unlike traditional natural abrasives that dull more quickly. Due to its fast cut-rate, hardness, and strength, it is widely used in grinding applications, as well as sanding and finishing applications. Aluminum oxide is suitable for a wide variety of materials in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys.
The heat-resistant resin bond adheres the abrasive particles to the cloth backing, creating a strong, stiff bond that can withstand the high heat and pressure of heavy sanding. This ensures that the 3M™ Cross Pad 341D will provide consistent performance over time.
Choose the 3M™ Cross Pad 341D for your grinding and polishing needs, and experience the benefits of its durable construction and versatile capabilities.
