3M™ Cloth RXC Unslashed Segment 261E is a durable and fast-cutting abrasive material that is best suited for metal grinding and finishing. It has a strong, Y-weight rayon cloth backing that provides smooth operation and durability when attached to the slots of a 3M™ RX Hub to assemble a flap wheel. The cloth segment can conform to the shape of contoured parts for consistent finishing and dimensioning. The abrasive side features a closed coat of aluminum oxide grains, which provides a fast cut for aggressive use and a fine finish for users looking to create a specific grain pattern.
Aluminum Oxide Abrasive
Aluminum oxide is a popular choice among industrial professionals because of its fast cut-rate and long life. This mineral makes a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges. This allows aluminum oxide abrasives to deliver consistent performance over a long lifespan. It is widely used for grinding and finishing applications due to its fast cut-rate, hardness, and strength. Aluminum oxide is suitable for use on a wide variety of materials in metalworking and woodworking.
Heat Resistant for Fast Cutting Action
This unslashed cloth segment uses a resin bonding that is specially designed to resist thermal and chemical deterioration, which can occur during aggressive grinding. The bond is very tough and excellent for precision work on hard and soft surfaces. This also allows for faster sanding and a higher cut-rate.
