Product Description

3M Xtract Electric Random Orbital Sanders are an integral part of the 3M Xtract™ sanding system. In combination with 3M Xtract™ Net Discs and the 3M Xtract™ Portable Dust Extractor, this powerful 350W sander provides virtually dust-free sanding. Designed to withstand heavy industrial use, 3M Xtract™ Electric Random Orbital Sanders feature powerful, precisely-balanced motors and durable, lightweight composite housings. The components are made of high-quality materials and can endure long hours of use on the shop floor. Keep dust at a distance.

This 3M Xtract™ Electric Random Orbital Sander is an excellent choice if you are looking for a cleaner working environment and a more efficient sanding process. They can easily be connected to either the 3M Xtract™ Portable Dust Extractor or your existing central vacuum system. They are engineered for dust extraction as part of the 3M Xtract™ Sanding Solution

In the event that you are not seeking ultra-precise sanding, consider using a 3/16 inch orbit. Due to its versatility, this size is the most popular and prevalent orbit size. The most effective use of this product is in the 100-220 grit range, where most sanding takes place. As a matter of fact, if you had to choose only one orbit size, this would be the one to choose. Despite its small size, it is not suitable for coarse grades. The mineral size may be half the diameter of the circle, which means that it is not covering as much area per revolution as it could. As a result, coarser grades require more time for the same amount of sanding.

Consider using a 3/32 inch orbit if you are looking to perform fine or ultra-precise sanding. You should select this size in consideration of the final result. There is a range of grit grades from 320 grit to 2000 grit, with the highest grade coming in around 2000 grit. A slower speed polisher type tool with abrasive compounds and bonnets may be used for finer grits than 2000 grits.

In order to effectively remove dust from the workpiece and surrounding areas, the rear threaded attachment allows for easy attachment and detachment of a 1" external threaded vacuum hose (sold separately). This system can extract up to 97% of the dust generated during sanding when used in conjunction with 3M Xtract™ Net Discs. Discover the benefits of 3M Xtract™ Clean Sanding Solutions.

Question & Answers

User Reviews

3M 887 Xtract Electric Random Orbital Sander
Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
acrylic
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
silicone
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
