3M™ BLUE ABRASIVE
Blue goes head to head with any abrasive in its class. Designed for performance: • Engineered ceramic mineral blend provides best-in-class performance using exactly the right balance of ceramic grain and premium aluminum oxide • Anti-loading coating improves disc life • Upgraded resins improve durability and finish.
More than almost anything else in the collision repair business today, consistency is the key to success. That’s why we developed our 3M™ Blue Abrasives. In every way, this selection of abrasive discs, sheet rolls and disc rolls is engineered to cut cleanly through the bulk of your panel prep and repair jobs, time after time. A balanced ceramic and aluminum oxide mineral blend abrasive makes quick and consistent work of metal and filler. An anti-loading coating and an available multi-hole pattern help evacuate dust from the abrasive surface, increasing efficiency and extending abrasive life. And 3M™ Hookit™ hook-and-loop or 3M™ Stikit™ adhesive attachment makes for quicker, more effortless change-outs. Blue Abrasives are available in a range of grades for jobs from repair through paint prep.
3M™ HOOKIT™ BLUE ABRASIVE SHEET ROLL
Sheet rolls make it fast and easy to tear off the right length for the job you need, whether hand sanding or sanding with a power tool. A chevron hole pattern extracts dust from the abrasive surface, helping to deliver more sanding per sheet. Our 3M™ Hookit™ hook-and-loop attachment works with any hook-and-loop hand block, pad or power tool for quick change-outs.
3M™ HOOKIT™ BLUE ABRASIVE DISC
Cuts fast with consistent results. 3M™ Blue Abrasives are engineered with a ceramic mineral blend that cuts through paint and body filler with consistent results every time. Available in Hookit™ configurations, there is a 3M Blue Abrasive available for every sanding application.
3M™ STIKIT™ BLUE ABRASIVE SHEET ROLL
The tear-off abrasive makes it easy and efficient to fashion abrasive sheets, and adhesive backing lets you attach them to specific hand blocks or power tools without foldover for minimal product waste. The balanced mineral blend abrasive on all of our 3M™ Blue Abrasives makes for a fast, consistent cut for a range of jobs.
3M™ CUBITRON™ II
Behind the Brand: 3M™ Cubitron™ II
3M Precision-Shaped Grain in the Cubitron II discs continuously fractures to form sharp points and edges — slicing cleaner, faster, staying cooler and lasting many times longer.
3M™ Cubitron™ II abrasives are powered by 3M Precision-Shaped Grain technology that helps you meet the challenges of your job. An array of products – belts, cut-off wheels, sanding discs, and other forms – are backed by an experienced 3M team. Collectively, we have hundreds of years of experience researching, testing, and improving offerings based on the needs of metalworkers and auto body technicians. The result? 3M™ Cubitron™ II abrasives work fast, last long and run smooth. It’s all part of a relentless drive to take the best from our labs to your business. We develop and deliver superb products for you.
The Science of Speed.
These clean, sharp points mean an abrasive that slices faster, runs cooler, and lasts much longer than conventional abrasives, which generate excessive heat buildup and have a shorter life. We have observed 3M™ Cubitron™ II products cutting faster and lasting up to 2x longer than some competitive products.
Saving Time. Saving Money.
As the saying goes, “time is money” and your abrasive product should last long to reduce changeouts and increase productivity. In a head to head comparison, it’s a no-brainer; Precision-Shaped Grain cuts faster, lasts longer, and helps reduce costs for your business.
3M™ CUBITRON™ II FILE BELTS
High-performance sanding belts. Cubitron II abrasives run cooler, delivering a fast cut while reducing the risk of metal discoloration/oxidation and heat-related stress cracks. Great for spot weld removal or weld grinding.

The speed and cutting power of 3M precision shaped grain.
3M™ CUBITRON™ II CUT-OFF WHEELS & 3M™ CUBITRON™ II ROLOC™ FIBRE DISCS
Cuts 30% Faster. Lasts 2x as Long.
3M™ Cubitron™ II products have raised the bar for high-performing abrasives. They utilize 3M™ Precision-Shaped Grain (PSG), which outcuts and outlasts conventional ceramic industrial abrasives and requires less grinding force to achieve superior performance. The result is that operators can grind faster and complete more parts per disc.
