The 3M™ Cubitron II Abrasive Belt 947A built with 3M™ Precision-Shaped Grain cuts metal dramatically faster and cooler, and stays sharp longer than conventional ceramic belts. Its X-weight poly-cotton backing is flexible. This belt is optimized for low and medium pressure applications on stainless steel, mild steels, and aluminum.
- 3M Precision-Shaped Grain slices through metals like a knife rather than gouging or plowing
- Removes material faster, with less pressure
- Includes a grinding aid for less grinding friction and cooler cutting
- Cool cutting action lessens the risk of heat-related damage to workpiece
- An X-weight poly-cotton backing is optimized for flexibility
- Lasts up to 4 times longer than conventional ceramic belts

What is the Cubitron ll Cloth Belt 947A made of?
The Cubitron ll Cloth Belt 947A is made of a ceramic aluminum oxide abrasive with a blend of precision shaped grain and X-weight cloth backing.
What are the dimensions and quantity in each case of the Cubitron II Cloth Belt 947A, 120+ X-weight belt?
Each belt has dimensions of 1 inch by 100 inches with a scallop A pattern. There are 200 belts in each case.
How do I use this product? Do I need special equipment to operate it?
This belt can be used for grinding, sanding or finishing metal surfaces. It works well on stainless steel and carbon steel as well as other metals. You may require specialized equipment based on your application needs.
Can I use it for wet applications?
Yes, you can. However, we recommend that before using any abrasive product in a wet application environment to ensure compatibility first.
Is this product compatible with automated machines? Can it be customized according to my requirements?
Yes, it can be used with various automated machines such as robotic arms or CNC machining centers which ensures streamlined consistency throughout operations consistently achieving superior results without compromising quality.
The product cannot be customized since altering or changing abrasive products may not meet standard safety regulations..
A closed coat and a grinding aid make our 3M™ Cubitron II Abrasive Belt 947A an outstanding option for low to medium pressure applications on heat sensitive metals. The nature of the abrasive structure diverts heat to the swarf, keeping both belt and workpiece cooler. It is now available in grades 40+ (make to order), 60+, 80+ and now 120+ adding an improved solution for finer finishing applications.Cutting Edge Performance for Low and Medium Pressure Sanding
A semi flexible Cubitron II belt the 3M™ 947A sports an X-weight poly-cotton backing. Among backing weights, an X-weight cloth is flexible and provides tensile strength as well. A great number of small belt sizes which are nimble and maneuverable so operators can get in, over and around intricate parts. These belts are good options for low-and-medium-pressure offhand operations for use on the following equipment:
- File Belt Sanders
- Inline Sanders
- Stroke Sanders
3M Precision-Shaped Grain is designed to continuously fracture to form sharp points and edges that easily "slice" through metal. It cuts faster, lasts longer and stays cooler. Conventional ceramic abrasive grain tends to "plow" through the metal, causing heat to build up in the workpiece and the abrasive – resulting in a slower cut, shorter belt life and undesirable effects, such as burnishing.3M Science. The Beginning of Cubitron II.
In 2009, 3M scientists had long believed abrasives would work better if each grain of the ceramic abrasive material was exactly the same size and shape. It would act more like a knife shaving off material and less like a plow bouncing along the surface, creating heat damage. The breakthrough came when they realized they could use microreplication technology 3M was already using to create reflective material for signs, and other purposes. Within a short time, they had created 3M's Precision Shaped Grain — identical triangular-shaped abrasive grains electrostatically oriented and distributed uniformly on an abrasive backing. The end result is faster, cooler cutting action, improved productivity, less operator fatigue and longer belt life.
