Featuring aluminum oxide mineral on XE-weight rayon cloth backing, the 3M™ Cloth Segment 244E is ideal for rotary sanding to remove rough areas and set a grain finish. It performs stock removal and finish sanding and is primarily used for setting the grain on contoured metal parts, such as stainless steel tanks used in the medical, food, and dairy industries.
- Custom segments offer conformability for rotary sanding on contours
- Stiff coated abrasive flaps perform light stock removal, deburring, finishing and blending, and setting a grain finish
- Heavyweight cloth provides durability for high-production environments
- Aluminum oxide delivers a fast cut
- Plastic base slides easily into a 3M™ RX Hub (sold separately) with the keyhole slots
- Resin bond resists heat

What type of surfaces can I use the 3M™ Cloth RX Unslashed Segment 341D on?
The 3M™ Cloth RX Unslashed Segment 341D is ideal for heavy grinding, blending, and metal removal applications on ferrous metals.
How many pieces are included in a case of the 3M™ Cloth RX Unslashed Segment?
A case of the 3M™ Cloth RX Unslashed Segment includes twenty (20) pieces that each measure at 4.75 inches by 2 inches.
Is this product durable enough to handle tough jobs?
Absolutely! The cloth backing provides exceptional durability even during continuous usage and can withstand high pressure abrasion without fraying or breaking down prematurely.
Can this product be used with water for wet grinding applications?
Yes. In addition to dry use, you may also apply it with oils or coolants. Additionally, it features an open coat construction which allows the abrasive grains to resharpen so that your disc lasts longer in your application.
Is this product suitable for hand sanding applications?
The primary purpose of our chopped segments is commonly used in automated processes where robotic machinery holds parts while holding onto these abrasive segments but since we bind these uniformly sized sections together firmly across its entire length, they'll hold their shape much better than traditional finishing belts allowing them sometimes usable under certain circumstances when doing work manually such as deburring part corners etc., though please review our detailed documentation first regarding limitations before undertaking any hand sanding prospected tasks
3M™ Cloth Segment 244E is constructed of a number of layers of coated abrasive cloth. These layers are held together on one end by a sturdy plastic assembly or base that slides easily into the teardrop-shaped slots of a 3M™ RX Hub (sold separately). As the hub rotates over the substrate, the abrasive delivers a linear finish. Segments offer more conformability over a comparable belt, making them more suitable for a range of contours and shaped areas of a workpiece. Additionally, the layers of the segment provide longer life than a belt.
3M manufactures cloth segments of two types: slashed and unslashed. Slashed segments are cut into vertical strips that offer more conformability to inner contours. Unslashed segments are used when less conformability is required and are generally slightly more aggressive than the slashed version.
Cloth-backed abrasives are known for their durability and flexibility and are a good choice for stock removal. 3M™ Cloth Segment 244E is constructed with heat-resistant resin, a strong binding agent that adheres the abrasive to the backing and maintains the stability of the bond even in conditions of high heat or pressure.
Ease of Use
The 3M™ RX Hub is an aluminum wheel with evenly spaced slots around the perimeter, into which the segments are inserted. These segments will also fit the keyhole shaped slots of hubs by other manufacturers. To hold the segments in place during operation, appropriately sized stamped metal flanges must be used on both sides of the hub.
