3M offers new grain sheets

3M has launched a product to help repair rust and dents with the introduction of 3M Precision Shaped Grain Sheets.

The sheets are available in a two-part system in three levels of grit – 80, 180 and 320.

The company says its technology “is engineered to act like a cutting tool” as it can cut through metal for up to five times longer. That would boost productivity, 3M said.

And it’s all in the technology, the company added. A sheet “continuously fractures to form sharp points and edges.” That makes cutting faster and cleaner and makes for a longer lifespan than traditional abrasives, 3M said.

The goal is to offer “an easy-to-use solution that allows them the ability to take on the toughest jobs while also keeping their edge,” said Matt Callahan, global marketing manager, auto care division at 3M Auto. “Precision-Shaped Grain technology is truly revolutionary to the industry. The triangular-shaped ceramic grain wears down evenly so it cuts faster and longer lasting than existing options today.”
