3M ™ Cubitron ™ 784F Canvas Tape features 3M Precision Shaped Grain. Our canvas tapes are a precise mix of molded ceramic and premium aluminum oxide. They feature a J-weight flexible cotton backing and open lining. They also have a waterproof backing and an additive for grinding.
Uses 3M ™ Cubitron ™ ll 784F Canvas Tape for a longer lasting, faster and more consistent cut than aluminum oxide tapes. A precise mix of molded ceramic and premium aluminum oxide provides optimum cutting performance for medium pressure grinding and masking applications. Our canvas belts feature exceptional cutting speed and are automatically renewed during grinding. These high performance tapes offer cost effective results for medium pressure applications where a full ceramic tape would be underutilized. Thanks to the waterproof polyester backing, these tapes can be used for wet or dry applications. To protect heat sensitive alloys such as stainless steel, titanium, nickel alloys and cobalt alloys, from cracking and discoloration caused by heat, a specific additive has been added to reduce the grinding temperature. In addition, the abrasive is firmly bonded to the substrate by resin, which preserves its resistance in conditions of high heat and pressure. Coarse grains 36+ to 80+ feature YF weight backing while finer 120+ to 180+ grains have lighter XF weight backing. Both weights are moderately flexible and accommodate slight contours and flat surfaces. 3M ™ Precision Shaped Grain Blend Technology 3M ™ Precision Shaped Grain is a big step forward in abrasive technology. 3M ™ PSG is a ceramic mineral designed using a unique process to improve the strength and hardness of the grain. 3M ™ scientists then went one step further and designed the mineral to form uniform triangular grains that continually fracture at extremely sharp points and ends that cut into the substrate rather than dig it like conventional abrasives. 3M ™ PSG enables extremely fast cutting and reduces build-up on the workpiece while reducing heat-induced cracking and discoloration. Plus, since 3M ™ PSG stays cooler and sharper, it lasts longer than conventional abrasives. For increased performance, 3M ™ Cubitron ™ II 784F Tapes include premium aluminum oxide blended with 3M ™ PSG to deliver a sharper, longer lasting abrasive. This not only offers more consistent performance but also provides twice the life span of aluminum oxide tapes in the same range. Longer life translates into lower finished part cost and less time wasted on belt replacements, maximizing productivity. Designed for Demanding Industrial Environments 3M ™ has been a leading supplier of abrasives to the metalworking industry for over 100 years. Given the vast combination of minerals, substrates and binders, whatever your grinding and finishing applications, 3M ™ offers you a full line of high quality coated and bonded abrasives. 3M Precision Shaped Grain's exceptional cutting speed and durability characteristics make it optimal for industrial environments. Use 3M ™ Cubitron ™ II Cloth Tapes for instant, consistent results throughout the life of the product on all metals, including heat sensitive alloys.
