3M Xtract™ Paper Disc 236U features a 3M™ proprietary multi-hole pattern for improved dust extraction in finishing applications. Part of the 3M Xtract Series, designed for optimal dust removal. Our innovative multi-hole pattern extracts dust better than 5- or 6-hole products — increasing cut and dramatically increasing disc life. The design does not need to align with the disc pad holes, making switching the discs fast, easy, and convenient. Advanced Series Abrasives from 3M are designed to deliver an unbeatable combination of performance and value. Open coat construction and a load-resistant coating further prevent clogging.
Built for a Broad Range of Applications
3M Xtract™ Paper Disc 236U is excellent for blending and finishing on aluminum and carbon steel, as well as woodworking applications for heavy and medium stock removal and finishing on hardwoods, softwoods, and composites. These clean sanding discs also work well on primer, paint, sealers, topcoats, fiberglass, and plastics.
Open Coat Helps Reduce Loading
The strong, C-weight paper backing on3M Xtract™ Paper Disc 236U supports aggressive sanding and minimizes edge wear. An open coat means the abrasive grains have space between them so that dust escapes through the spaces rather than loading the cutting edge of the grains. The load resistant coating allows the disc to continue cutting even when sanding softwoods, paints, and other materials that would, otherwise, clog the disc and hinder sanding ability.
Efficient Dust Extraction
Sandpaper discs cut better and last longer when dust isn't loading the cutting surface of the abrasives. Reducing dust is easier than ever with 3M Xtract™ Discs, designed for optimal dust removal. For maximum dust extraction, use this disc with a 3M Xtract™ Hookit™ Back-up Pad and a random orbital sander with vacuum (both sold separately). The 3M proprietary multi-hole pattern on 3M Xtract™ products removes dust at a higher rate than 5- or 6-hole products. This proprietary multi-hole pattern evacuates dust from the disc at a high rate. This hole design doesn't even require alignment of holes with the disc pad (which is attached to a random orbital sander and sold separately), making disc changes quick and simple. The 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system uses a hook and loop design that makes disc changes fast and easy. All of this adds up to improved productivity and reduced material consumption.
