Our 3M™ Cloth 341D abrasive is a durable aluminum oxide cloth recommended for metal deburring, general metalworking, and some woodworking applications.
To create our 3M™ Cloth 341D abrasives, fast-cutting aluminum oxide abrasive grains are resin-bonded to a durable X-weight cotton cloth backing to provide the continuous cut and long-life performance necessary for more aggressive dry sanding applications. For finishing on metal, the closed coat construction offers a consistent, fine finish, and is suitable for producing a grain pattern.
Aluminum oxide mineral is a popular choice among industrial professionals because of its cut-rate, durability, and long life. It can be used on a wide variety of materials in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys, and is the most commonly used industrial abrasive. The abrasive grain is adhered to the cloth backing with resin, creating a strong bond that withstands high heat and pressure.
