Reliable Construction for Contour Sanding

3M™ Cloth Segment 244E is a durable and flexible abrasive cloth that is constructed with multiple layers of coated abrasive cloth. The layers are held together on one end by a sturdy plastic assembly or base that easily slides into the teardrop-shaped slots of a 3M™ RX Hub (sold separately). This abrasive delivers a linear finish as the hub rotates over the substrate. The 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.
