Abrasives for metalworking and industrial applications
July 2018, Enclosures, Cabling & Connectors


RS Components has introduced 3M’s new Silver portfolio of portable bonded abrasives for use with a wide range of cutting and grinding tools in metalworking applications. New products in the Silver portfolio include depressed centre grinding wheels and cut-off wheels. Abrasives are vital in a wide range of applications, including structural metal for buildings; bridges and oil and gas infrastructure; rail and shipbuilding industries; construction of machinery and equipment for many industries; and in general metalworking applications.

The new 3M Silver abrasives combine the use of 3M’s Precision-Shaped Grain technology to slice through metal and deliver faster and cooler cutting with longer life when compared to conventional grain products. The highly durable material also delivers a consistent cut through its complete life. The Silver range balances cutting ability with product wear, resulting in lower abrasive costs for applications that do not require 3M’s high end abrasives such as the Cubitron II.

The Silver depressed centre grinding wheels (DCGW) represent a new class of right angle abrasives. They are an ideal choice for weld removal, bevelling and edge chamfering, and offer a faster cut and longer life than aluminium oxide and alumina zirconia wheels.

The Silver cut-off wheels are premium performance tools but are affordable for everyday use. These products deliver a fast and smooth cutting action on all types of ferrous metals, stainless steels and alloy steels. Now also available from RS is 3M personal protective equipment for use with the abrasive wheels, including safety glasses, cut resistant gloves, hearing protection, face shield, respirators, guard tools and other body protection devices such as aprons and boots.
