What materials is the Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Low Stretch Belt suitable for?
The SC-BL belt is designed to work on most metals, including stainless steel, aluminum, mild steel, brass and copper.
How long can I use a single SC-BL belt before replacing it with a new one?
While it will depend on the conditions of your application and how often you're using the belt, each one should provide many hours of consistent performance. Once you notice the abrasive material beginning to wear down or lose effectiveness, it's time to replace that particular belt.
Is this product safe to use?
Absolutely! This tool has been thoroughly tested in 3M's labs and research facilities in order ensure its safety and reliability. Additionally, Scotch-Brite abrasives products do not generate dust during usage – making them more convenient for operators while improving indoor air quality.
The Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Low Stretch Belt is a durable and flexible solution for cleaning, finishing and light deburring applications. It is most effective on steel and stainless steel, carbon, titanium and nickel alloys, but can also be used on aluminum, copper, brass and soft, non-ferrous metals. With many variations available, operators can find the perfect belt for their unique project.Minerals, Grades and Belt Types
The Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Low Stretch Belt is engineered using aluminum oxide and silicon carbide minerals. Combinations include: aluminum oxide medium (A MED), aluminum oxide very fine (A VFN), aluminum oxide coarse (A CRS), silicon carbide medium (S MED), silicon carbide super fine (S SFN), silicon carbide very fine (S VFN). Aluminum oxide is softer but lasts longer than silicon carbide, making it ideal for projects where a soft scratch is desirable. Conversely, silicon carbide is a good match for projects where a coarser, more aggressive cut is desired. Choose a fine grade for finer finishes and medium or coarse grades for coarser finishes. The Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Low Stretch Belt is intended for use in "low stretch" applications when a standard scrim belt is stretching on the machine or when less conformability is desired. The low-stretch belt is resistant to wear and sharp edges, making it useful in a variety of industries, from transportation to metal fabrication.
The belt is available in different types: file, narrow, portable, pump sleeve and wide & flat finishing. Operators should consider tools, surface area, contours and dimensions of a workpiece when choosing a belt. Narrow belts are commonly used in benchstand and backstand applications, while pump sleeves are fitted around expander wheels and used for finishing large equipment that cannot be moved.The Many Benefits of Open Web Abrasives
Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives are unique due to their nonwoven technology. A combination of fiber strands, resin and abrasive mineral forms a thick, open web. The spring-like nature of the fibers responds to contours and effectively removes unwanted burrs, soils and contaminants while maintaining the geometry of the workpiece. Gaps in the web allow swarf to escape, so debris does not clog the mineral. Fibers in the web continually break down with use to reveal fresh mineral for exceptional consistency, superior cut performance and extremely long service life. Scotch-Brite products not only enhance productivity, but also increase operator. From aesthetic finishing to weld blending, deburring and more, Scotch-Brite abrasives work fast and deliver consistent results, part after part.Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belts
Overall, operators choose Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belts for cleaning, finishing, blending and deburring. The non-woven material combined with abrasive grain is an ideal way to add a great finish or remove burrs while maintaining the geometry of the workpiece. Trust Scotch-Brite™ Belts to deliver fantastic finishes.
