Invention: Cubitron II

Inventor: 3M

At 3M, “abrasive” is a compliment. 3M’s first product was a new way to apply rocks to paper to create sandpaper. Today, they’ve moved from sand glued to paper to designed ceramics applied to customized surfaces in their Cubitron II products. This innovation provides safer, more efficient and effective cutting and smoothing technologies. Their Cubitron II abrasives are used in many industries on thousands of surfaces, from computers to automotive.
