From the Manufacturer
The 3M™ Roloc™ Disc 361F TSM offers a quick-change attachment and provides durability and high performance for grinding, blending, deburring, and finishing on all metals. Fast-cutting aluminum oxide abrasive grains are bonded to the heavy YF-weight cloth backing with durable, heat-resistant resin that supports both wet and dry applications. The quick and easy TSM attachment system works with Roloc™ TSM disc pads to make changing discs as easy as a short twist to remove the disc, and a short twist to attach the next disc.
3M™ Roloc™ TSM quick change discs have an asymmetrical metal hub that requires just a short twist to securely lock onto a compatible disc pad (sold separately) so that operators can conveniently change discs with a simple twist-off, twist-on motion. No tools are needed, and this quick and convenient attachment method saves operators time when switching discs between grades or applications.
Aluminum oxide mineral is a popular choice among industrial professionals because of its fast cut-rate and long life. This mineral makes a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges in use, whereas traditional abrasives such as garnet quickly wear down with use. Due to their fast cut-rate, hardness, strength, and low heat retention, they are widely used in grinding applications in addition to sanding and finishing applications. Aluminum oxide is suitable for a wide variety of materials in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys.
Heat-resistant resin is a sturdy binding agent that adheres the abrasive to the backing and maintains the stability of the bond even in conditions of high heat or pressure.
Cloth-backed discs are known for their durability and flexibility. They're a good first choice when working with metal or for heavy wood stock removal.
