A cut above the rest

3M™ Silver Grinding Wheels represent a new class of abrasives – powered by the legendary speed and long life of 3M precision-shaped grain. They are an ideal choice for applications like weld removal, beveling, edge chamfering and more – offering a faster cut and longer life than aluminum oxide and alumina zirconia (AZ).*

The science of precision-shaped grain

  • precision shaped grain


  • 3M precision-shaped grain uses 3M microreplication technology to form sharp peaks that easily “slice” through metal—cutting cooler, faster and lasting longer than conventional abrasive grain.*

  • conventional ceramic abrasive grain
  • Conventional ceramic abrasive grain tends to "plow" through the metal, causing heat to build up in the workpiece and the abrasive—resulting in a slower cut and a shorter disc life.*

Tech tip – Powering up for performance

  • Depressed Centre Grinding Wheels perform better the faster they run, so having a tool able to maintain speed is crucial.
  • The higher the tool power, the easier it can maintain speed, resulting in faster cut time and longer wheel life.
  • When the tool speed decreases, wheel wear typically increases.
  • Do NOT exceed the maximum operating speed listed on the wheel!

  • Vector image of Stack of Grinidng wheels written 2X

    3M™ Silver Cut-off Wheels experience less wear and tear and last up to two times longer than competitors.*

Tech tip – Size matters

Wheel thickness affects wheel performance. The thicker the wheel, the longer the life and the slower the cut rate. When cutting thicker material, use a thicker and larger diameter wheel to maximize wheel life. Thinner wheels cut faster and wear faster. They also work better on thin gauge materials.
