What are 3M Trizact Abrasives?
The best consistent honing abrasives on the market, leaving a high-polished finish. They start sharp and stay sharp throughout their long life. Produced using 3M’s microreplication technology, the surface is covered in micro engineered micro-pyramids which deliver fast, consistent cutting action. As the tops of the pyramids wear away, they continually expose fresh abrasive, always giving you consistent results from start to finish through their long life.
What are 3M Trizact Abrasives good for?
AUTOMOTIVE applications: Perfect for sharpening any high-speed steel machining/cutting tools. Get crisp edges on valve seats and stems, hone small parts of almost any shape.
JEWELLERY applications: Fantastic results on jewellery. Performs better than emery paper and fills porosity. Also works great on acrylics, resins, and plastics, and for glass defect repair.
WOODWORKING applications: Perfect for high-speed steels, it allows sharpening of a wide array of woodcarving & turning tools and knives. Fine hone and maintain the tips & edges of flat chisels, drill bits, counter sinks, fluted end mills, etc.
