  • Superior alternative to steel wool, wire brushes, sandpaper, and other nonwoven products for cleaning or finishing tasks
  • Very fine grade aluminum oxide abrasive cleans, finishes, grains, denibs, and defuzzes
  • Suitable for use on wood, metal, plastics, ceramics, porcelain, glass, rubber, or composites
  • Reusable pad resists tearing, splintering, shredding, loading and will never rust, providing a long, useful life
  • Can be folded, stacked, or rolled for effective cleaning or conditioning on flat, irregular, or contoured surfaces

Scotch-Brite™ General Purpose Hand Pad 7447 combines flexibility with effective cutting action and precise hand control to accomplish tough cleaning jobs or produce fine finishing results, use after use. Very fine grade aluminum oxide abrasives cut fast and fine, leaving a smooth, finished surface. Suitable for use on a wide variety of materials and for many different tasks.

Scotch-Brite™ General Purpose Hand Pad 7447

May be used with hand block to access hard-to-reach areas

Suitable for a wide variety of subsratesOffers Precise Hand Control
The performance of Scotch-Brite™ General Purpose Hand Pad 7447 is comparable to steel wool grade 1. However, unlike steel wool, our Scotch-Brite™ pads won’t shred during use, rust after use, or create fine metal splinters. The non-woven, open-web material resists loading and can be used dry, with water or solvents, and rinsed clean for reuse. This multipurpose 6 x 9″ pad can be used by hand for precise control, with a hand pad block for uniform finishing, or on an in-line sander to cover large areas. 

Hand held abrasive bends and curves to round out your finishMay Be Used on a Variety of Substrates
This maroon hand pad uses aluminum oxide abrasive. Aluminum oxide is a popular choice among industrial professionals because of its cut-rate and long life. This mineral is a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges in use, whereas traditional abrasives, such as garnet, quickly wear down with use. Due to its high cut-rate, hardness, strength, and low heat retention, aluminum oxide mineral is widely used in grinding applications in addition to sanding and finishing use. Aluminum oxide is suitable on a wide variety of substrates in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys. 

Many Benefits of Open-Web Abrasives
Our Scotch-Brite&trade industrial abrasive products are a unique surface conditioning product with abrasives incorporated into non-woven nylon or other synthetic fibers. Combining abrasives into the fibers creates an abrasive system that delivers consistent results for the life of the product. The open-web material is load resistant and keeps the abrasive minerals cutting at high performance by limiting clogging of the fibers.

Product Details

  • Provides a clean and economical system for removing fine burrs, yet resulting in a polished finish
  • Conformability offers consistent finishing while keeping fresh abrasive mineral continuously exposed
  • Non-woven web runs cool and lessens impact on heat-sensitive materials
  • Unique resin system produces less smearing, reducing clean and prep time
  • Multi-purpose wheel cleans, finishes, blends, deburrs, and polishes all types of metals, composites and glass

Scotch-Brite™ Light Deburring Wheel is a smooth running, convolute-constructed wheel that provides a clean system for light deburring, polishing, and finishing. We made this wheel with Soft construction and smooth operation to require less effort by the operator than a harder wheel.

Our Scotch-Brite™ Light Deburring Wheel is uniquely suited to applications where a moderate degree of conformability and density are needed to maintain critical tolerances while providing a fine polished finish. A unique resin system helps minimize smearing and reduces heat build-up. The Light Deburring Wheel runs cool and resists loading due to its non-woven web construction. We did this to reduce the risk of part discoloration and warping while extending the life of the wheel. The Light Deburring Wheel is available in fine grade abrasive. 

Our Scotch-Brite™ Light Deburring Wheel uses fine grade silicon carbide abrasive. Silicon carbide is a synthetic mineral that is very sharp and commonly used for low-pressure applications such as paint prep. While it breaks down faster than aluminum oxide, it produces a superior finish. 

Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives are unique surface conditioning products with abrasives incorporated into non-woven nylon or synthetic fibers. Combining abrasives with the fibers creates an abrasive system that delivers consistent results for the life of the product. We made this wheel with an open-web material that runs cool and is load resistant, which keeps the abrasive minerals cutting at high performance by limiting clogging of the fibers.
