FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 4, 2005 St. Paul, Minn. - 3M announced today the availability
of a new addition to their creative arts product portfolio. FX
Polishing Wheels from 3M feature a new, molded-wheel technology for
controllable, consistent finishing and polishing of precious metals.
The new FX Polishing Wheels from 3M provide conformable polishing
action, while brightening, blending and enhancing scratch patterns.
When used with Trizact or Scotch-Brite Bristle products from 3M,
they can reduce or eliminate the use of muslin and cotton buffs with
compounds, applying a uniform semi-final or final finish on
platinum, gold, titanium, brass and other precious metals.
The wheels' conformable resin construction is ideal for finishing
parts with complex shapes, curves and contours and can be run wet or
dry to achieve the artists' preferred results. FX Polishing Wheels
from 3M are available in either four-inch or six-inch diameters and
in six standard grades from 240 to 3000 grit.
