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.
