The traditional method of using specialized drill bits to separate panels during disassembly is time- consuming, expensive and challenging for the technician. The 3M Green Corps File Belt is an alternative to drilling, with a long-lasting abrasive surface designed for spot weld removal and grinding in other tight areas.
3M said its Green Corps File Belt grinds off more spot welds than drill bits, and it works well on all types of steel.
Also available is the Scotch-Brite Duraflex File Belt that can be used for the removal of window urethane and seam sealer as well as weld preparation and cleanup applications.
