Scales are thin layers of very hard oxide and carbide ceramic. Due to the very hard characteristics of scales conventional abrasive typically wear fast. Thus, sturdy material with long wear times is required - in different grades and deliveries, such as handheld but also machine-fit pads and discs as well as flap wheels.
The Scotch-Brite™ product family includes products from fine to coarse, stiff to flexible, handheld to machine enabled. For heavy duty applications, a silicon carbide nylon mat base with Cubitron™II grain made of ceramics shows highest resistance to wear. Most important is to ensure the general workpiece remains intact throughout the process and to ensure the abrasive does not penetrate the base material. .
Our Cubitron™ II abrasives deliver fast cut rates and long service life thanks to the use of 3M Precision-Shaped Grain. This engineered grain continuously forms sharp points and edges that slice through metal substrates, delivering fast cutting action compared to conventional abrasives. Cubitron™ II abrasives wear evenly, run cool and provide super-long life and consistency. This makes them ideal for cutting, grinding, deburring and other aggressive metalworking applications.
Our Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives are designed to deliver a consistently fast, yet forgiving cut that won’t significantly change the shape or dimension of the workpiece. Unique, nonwoven construction helps prevent loading, undercutting and gouging, even around contoured shapes and corners. This makes Scotch-Brite™ abrasives ideal for finishing, blending, deburring, paint or rust removal and more.
Our 3M™ Trizact™ abrasives are designed to deliver consistent quality in finishing work. Featuring precisely patterned structures filled with sharp abrasive grains, Trizact™ abrasives deliver more consistent finishes and cut-rates, a longer useful lifespan and cooler working temperatures than conventional abrasives. This predictable performance results in lower part-rejection rates, higher productivity and more consistent quality in your end products.
Make the right choice for every application: Flash rust, corrosion and heavy layers of rust require a different range of solutions for their removal. You, as specialists, have our expert range of products at hand. For fast but thorough surface treatment that results in flawless surfaces which can be taken to the next step in your process. Scotch-Brite™ Products range from fine to coarse grades for both handpads and discs with reinforced edges and best-in-class wear times due to ceramic Cubitron™II grains that enable you to achieve optimized sanding results also on ridges and in splines.
Deadening is a necessary preparation step prior to further working on a surface. The complete removal of paint or lacque residue and a light roughening of the surface enhances the outcome. Product choice is easy - the more residue you want to remove, the more robust grinding pads or discs should be use.
