Back-up Pads: 3M™ Dual Lock PSA Soft Disc Pad 20247, 1-1/4 in, 20 per case

This disc pad attaches to the PN20246 Dual Lock Rubber Skirt. The Dual Lock hooks provide a secure attachment even in extreme wet applications. The pad has a blue vinyl face to hold the 466LA PSA backed abrasive discs.

  • Soft density disc pad provides cushion and conformability for finishing fine surfaces
  • Dual Lock attachment is stronger in strength than typical hook-and-loop fasteners
  • Mushroom-shaped stems snap in place to lock the pad in place
  • Small diameter for repairing small defects in paint
  • Drives Trizact film discs to level most defects
  • Maximum rpm of 7500

Solid, but Soft, Support

Ideally suited for high-volume production environments, 3M™ Dual Lock™ PSA Soft Disc Pad PN 20247 provides a secure, conformable backup to Trizact microfinishing discs to remove minor defects like nibs, scratches, marks, and blemishes in clear coat.

Extreme wet sanding applications – in which the abrasive, pad and tool are continuously subjected to water – can test the limits of any attachment method so this dual lock disc pad system was developed to provide a pad attachment strong enough to withstand the demands of a heavy-duty industrial wet sanding application.

Solving the Attachment Challenge

The Dual Lock™ snap-locking system has holding power 5 times stronger than conventional hook and loop. Interlocking mushroom-shaped stems "snap" together and provide a definite tactile response. When two pieces of Dual Lock™ fasteners are pressed together, the stems flex and the mushroom heads slide past each other. After passing the opposing mating piece, the stems snap back into their original position and the opposing mushroom heads interlock. These fasteners provide high tensile strength but can be opened by simply cleaving or peeling open the closure. The Dual Lock fastening system is durable enough to be opened and closed 1,000 times before losing 50% of its original strength.

The Science of a Perfect Finish

3M™ Trizact™ abrasives discs are used by most automotive manufacturers worldwide, as well as automotive collision shops, car and motorcycle dealerships, and detail shops. This duo, when used with 3M™ Nib Sander PN 3125, are part of the 3M™ Trizact™ Finesse-it™ Paint Defect Repair System.

Back-up Pads: Scotch-Brite™ Hookit™ Conversion Face

Our Scotch-Brite™ Hookit™ Conversion Face facilitates the connection of Scotch-Brite™ non-woven discs (sold separately) to Hookit™ Back Up Pads, so operators can utilize a single back up pad/tool system for both non-woven and coated abrasive products.

  • Connects non-woven discs to Hookit™ Back Up Pads
  • Available in a range of sizes to fit various Hookit™ Back Up Pads
  • Features nylon loop backing for secure attachment to back up pad
  • Features mushroom hooks for secure attachment to non-woven disc
  • Provides economical and convenient solutions for optimizing non-woven disc use

Conversion Face Method of Operation

The conversion face has a high loft black brushed nylon loop backing to firmly attach to 3M™ Hookit™ Back Up Pads (sold separately) or as provided with 3M™ Orbital and Random Orbital Sanders. The hook side of the conversion face has small, white mushroom headed hooks which go through the web of the Scotch Brite™ 7447 Pro & 7448 Pro Discs (sold separately) and most other 3M™ Scotch Brite™ non-woven products. Scotch-Brite™ Hookit™ Conversion Face comes in several sizes to accommodate varying sizes of Hookit™ Back Up Pads. To use coated abrasive products, simply remove the conversion face from the back up pad and attach an appropriate Hookit™ disc. 

The Many Benefits of Non-Woven Abrasives

Scotch-Brite™ Pro Discs are unique surface conditioning products that feature mineral coated on non-woven nylon fibers. Breakthrough fiber coating technology allows Scotch-Brite™ Pro abrasive products to cut faster and produce a consistent scratch, reducing the time and effort it takes to finish parts. Combining mineral with the fibers creates an abrasive system that delivers consistent results for the life of the product. The open-web material is load resistant and keeps abrasive minerals cutting at high performance by limiting clogging of the nylon fibers. These discs are commonly used for tough cleaning, scuffing and finishing jobs.

Make the Most of It

The Scotch-Brite™ Hookit™ Conversion Face was engineered to help operators drive non-woven discs in partnership with Hookit™ Back Up Pads on Random Orbital or Orbital Sanders. Instead of using a different tool entirely or being forced to drive non-woven abrasives by hand, conversion these conversion faces allow operators to the same tool and make the most of both non-woven and coated abrasive discs.

Back-up Pads: 3M™ Flap Disc Holder T27 88769, 4 in 5/8-11 Internal, 1 per case

Holder for 7 inch diameter 3M™ Abrasive Flap Discs and 6 inch diameter Clean and Strip Cup Wheel.

  • 3M™ Flap Disc Holder securely mounts 3M™ flap discs and cup wheels to a right angle grinder
  • Made for Type 27 abrasive discs and wheels
  • Custom Allen wrench helps tighten the retainer nut
  • Holder includes spacers to accommodate mounting on various length spindles
  • Accommodates 6” or 7” diameter discs and wheels

Securely Mount Type 27 Flap Discs and Wheels to Power Tools

3M™ Flap Disc Holder includes all the necessary components to make abrasive-to-tool attachment secure: spacers, flanges, retainer nut, and an Allen wrench. The spacers are optional and intended to accommodate different spindle lengths among common commercially available right angle grinders, while still placing the abrasive product of choice safely within the grinder guard.

Once all the components and the accompanying abrasive have been properly mounted, use an Allen wrench to twist the retainer nut and tighten the entire system, locking it into place. 3M™ Flap Disc Holders are commonly used on right angle grinders.

Safety First: Tips for Optimal Performance

As with all abrasives and power tools, it’s important to take safety precautions. Two simple safety measures include using a guard on the right angle grinder and complying with the maximum operating speed.

First, a guard prevents debris from flying and minimizes the risk of injury. As mentioned above, it’s important that the disc be positioned within the guard, to ensure maximum safety and to allow the guard to function as designed. Finally, the maximum operating speed of the tool should be equal to or less than the speed indicated on the abrasive. By abiding by the proper speed, operators reduce the risk of injury and may also prolong abrasive service life.

Make the Most of Your Abrasive

We offer a range of Type 27 flap discs and wheels (sold separately) to meet your grinding needs. These abrasives are great for grinding and blending in one easy step. Fresh mineral is exposed for the life of the disc, helping to provide consistent cut rates. These abrasives tackle projects like weld grinding, blending, deburring, rust removal and surface prep on a variety of metals. For those abrasives that come without an integral 5/8-11” hub, the 3M™ Flap Disc Holder helps you securely attach the disc or wheel to the power tool and make the most of your abrasive.

Back-up Pads: 3M™ Disc Pad Holder 922, 2 in x 1/4 in Shank, 10 per case

The Scotch-Brite™ Disc Pad is an abrasive accessory that helps connect Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Discs to right angle grinders with ease. The center pin, which centers the disc on the pad, does not extend past the surface of the disc when the disc is installed. Together with the Scotch-Brite™ abrasive disc, this back up pad works well on metals, paints and sealants.

  • Center pin back up pad connects center-hole Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Discs (sold separately) to power tools
  • Center pin is specially designed to not interfere with work surfaces, minimizing risk of scratching or gouging
  • Center pin enables well centered disc attachment, which reduces vibration and increases operator comfort
  • Use with right angle grinder

A Great Back Up Pad from Any Angle

Using the Scotch-Brite™ Disc Pad is as simple as threading the pad onto the power tool and then attaching the disc to the pad face. The center pin system contributes to a reduction in hand-arm vibration due to its ability to repeatedly and accurately center the disc on the pad, in comparison to other pads without the center pin feature.

The Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Discs are made with aluminum oxide or other abrasive minerals and are available in a variety of grades. These discs are commonly used to remove rust, discoloration, and residual sealants. They help clean flat metal parts, prep surfaces after weld seam removal and prep surfaces prior to coating or painting. The reason these discs can prep surfaces so well is because they strike a balance between cut and finish. The abrasive mineral cuts burrs and contaminants while the spongy open web responds to surface imperfections without gouging, marring or damaging the base material. The non-woven, open web, durable construction is designed to resist loading; gaps between fibers allow debris to escape and not clog the disc. Consequently, the service life of the disc increases.

We engineered this comprehensive system of abrasive accessories and discs to make your work swift and efficient. We make engineering innovative abrasive products our top priority, so you can focus on what matters to you: high-quality work.

Back-up Pads: 3M™ Hookit™ Clean Sanding Low Profile Disc Pad

3M™ Hookit™ Clean Sanding Low Profile Disc Pads are firm yet flexible to provide versatility for flat sanding applications and are designed to securely hold a 3M™ Hookit™ Clean Sanding Disc on a random orbital sander (discs sold separately). Use this disc pad with coarse grades where good leveling is needed.

  • Precise multi-hole pattern provides superior dust extraction to prevent loading, increase productivity, and provide a cleaner work environment
  • One piece threaded shank for low vibration and improved balance
  • Low profile firm density foam and blunt 35 degree tapered edge provide durability and an aggressive cut
  • 3M™ Hookit™ system provides easy disc changes and optimizes disc life

For Aggressive Flat Sanding

Constructed from firm density foam with a 35-degree blunt tapered edge for added durability, our 3M™ Hookit™ Clean Sanding Low Profile Disc 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. We developed the Hookit™ system to makes disc changes quick and easy, enabling repeated use for the life of the disc, reducing material consumption and increasing parts per disc. In addition, our 3M™ Clean Sanding Disc Pad is designed so hole alignment is not required, making our system even simpler to use than a standard "dust free" systems. 

3M Clean Sanding dust-management system features our proprietary multi-hole pattern and evacuates dust from the work surface better than 5- or 6-hole products. Reducing dust dramatically increases the cutting efficiency and life of the disc, which ultimately reduces operating costs. 

Optimized with a self-generated-vacuum sanding tool fitted with a Clean Sanding filter bag (sold separately), our Clean Sanding products allow the vacuum to suction dust from the air and off of the workpiece. This reduces loading of the disc and adds life to the abrasive. Additionally, reducing dust in the air improves working conditions. 3M Clean Sanding abrasives can be paired with Clean Sanding disc pads for use on a central-vacuum-ready sander. 

Focus on the Task at Hand with Hookit™ Attachment

Whether your job requires a random orbital or rotary sander, buffer (PDF, 1.5 Mb), grinder, drill, finishing sander or other power tool, 3M™ Hookit™ products allow you to focus more on the task and less on tooling. Hookit™ abrasive products with our hook-and-loop backing are manufactured with loop material that mates to a backup pad, each 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.
