Technology Spotlight | Precision-Shaped Grain

  • The Science of 3M Cubitron II Precision Shaped Grain

    3M Precision-Shaped Grain is the advanced technology behind our 3M™ Cubitron™ II™ products. Here’s how it works: Precision-Shaped Grain is designed with sharp, triangular structures that continuously fracture to form new, sharp points rather than dulling like traditional abrasives.

    Cuts faster. Runs cooler.
    These clean, sharp points mean an abrasive that cuts faster, runs cooler and lasts much longer than conventional abrasives. Where conventional abrasives generate excessive heat buildup, the heat generated from our Precision-Shaped Grain is directly dissipated from the workpiece into the chip.

    Save time. Save money.
    As the saying goes, “time is money.” Fast-cutting 3M™ Cubitron™ II increases productivity and lasts up to 2x longer than the competition, improving output while reducing changeover.
