What is the 3M™ Cross Pad 341D made of?
The 3M™ Cross Pad 341D is made of aluminum oxide abrasive on a flexible cloth backing.
What kind of surface does this product work best on?
This product works best on ferrous and non-ferrous metals, as well as plastics and composites.
How many pads come in each case?
Each case contains 100 pads total. There are 50 pads in each inner pack.
Is the X-weight rating important for my application needs?
Yes, it is! The X-weight rating reflects the strength and durability of the abrasive material. An X-weight rated pad means it has heavy-duty fibers to stand up to high pressure 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.
