Disc Pads Drive the Action
In low profile, standard profile and low profile finishing models, the 3M Stikit Disc Pads provide well-balanced backup to drive the disc and transfer the power of the sanding device to the work surface. The Low Profile is most aggressive and recommended for flat sanding operation and coarse grade abrasive products. The Standard Profile disc pad has a 45 degree tapered edge for flexibility. It allows the sanded area to be feather edged or more easily blended and is recommended for use with medium grade abrasive products. The Low Profile Finishing provides the best finish. It is the least aggressive disc pad. Use on flat surfaces or contoured surfaces with finer grade abrasive products.
Stikit Disc Pads are available in dust-free versions as well for cleaner air and finer finishing results. Abrasive discs cut better and last longer when dust isnt loading the cutting surface of the abrasive. These are part of the dust-management system which feature the same multi-hole pattern in the abrasive disc and the disc pad, enabling dust extraction when used with self-generated vacuum or central vacuum tools.
The 3M Stikit system was designed for convenient changes between abrasive grades or applications. Stikit abrasives come ready to use with a pressure sensitive adhesive coating on the backside so that attaching them to the hand pad is as simple as pressing on a sticker. Yet they remove cleanly without adhesive residue left on the back up pad surface. This makes for fast change-outs, saving time, and prolongs the life of abrasives.
