3M Xtract™ Low Profile Back-up Pads are firm yet flexible to provide versatility for flat sanding applications and are designed to securely hold a 3M Xtract Disc on a random orbital sander (sold separately). Part of the 3M Xtract Series, designed for optimal dust removal, , enabling a vacuum to extract dust off the workpiece to prolong disc life and enhance productivity. Use this back-up pad with coarse grades where good leveling is needed.
For Aggressive Flat Sanding Constructed from firm density foam with a 35-degree blunt tapered edge for added durability, our 3M Xtract™ Low Profile Back-up Pads are ideal for aggressive flat sanding operations. Science of Dust Management Our proprietary multi-hole pattern works with a vacuum to help eliminate dust from the disc, workpiece and air. 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 Back-up pad and a random orbital sander with vacuum (both sold separately). Our proprietary multi-hole pattern on 3M Xtract products removes dust at a higher rate than 5- or 6-hole products. This hole design doesn't even require alignment of holes with the back-up 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. Reducing dust dramatically increases the cutting efficiency and life of the disc, which ultimately reduces operating costs. Focus on the Task at Hand with 3M™ Hookit™ Attachment Whether your job requires a random orbital or rotary sander, buffer, grinder, drill, finishing sander or other power tool, 3M Hookit products allow you to focus more on the task and less on tooling. 3M Hookit abrasive products with our hook-and-loop backing are manufactured with loop material that mates to a backup pad (sold separately) where tiny hooks firmly engage the loops. Attachment is quick, easy, and secure during use. Sanding, finishing, and surface conditioning products with the 3M Hookit attachment and removal system gives you an efficient way to work through multi-step finishing processes and can be used again and again for the life of the abrasive.
