Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belt is a durable belt engineered to perform detail work such as blending, blending corners, cleaning, contour finishing, deburring, deburring edges, fine finishing, flat finishing, setting the grain, stainless steel finishing, and attaining straightline-brushed finishes on a variety of metals.
- Nonwoven, surface conditioning belts clean, blend, deburr and finish
- Reduced loading and heat build-up allow extended operating time and consistent surface conditioning results
- Conformability allows abrasive to stay in contact with complex-shaped parts in robotic processing
- Reinforced backing and nonwoven open web material provide superior flexibility for detail work, over contours and edges
- Removes surface imperfections, grind lines, mill, and other marks

What materials can I use the Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belt on?
The surface conditioning belt works well on a variety of metals, including stainless steel, brass and carbon steel.
How long does the 6 in x 132 in size typically last?
It depends on several factors such as the usage demands placed upon it, but this particular belt is designed for durability and long life. Frequent checks are needed to maintain its effectiveness.
Does it significantly reduce dust or debris during sanding processes compared with other brands?
Yes! This product has an open construction that resists loading and reduces media contamination. Its fiber injection process promotes improved flexibility so you can clean more surface area without excessive damage.
Can I replace my current abrasive belts and wheels with these Non-woven belts from Scotch-Brite without purchasing new equipment?
Yes! Because this nonwoven material will conform easily to contours while minimizing gouging- some applications may notice reduced cutting capacity compared to traditional abrasives -you won't necessarily need specialized tools if your current ones are a compatible fit with our products.
Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belt is a versatile abrasive that is effective in removing coarse grind lines, mill marks, or small burrs left by cutting tools or conventional abrasives. These abrasive belts come in various widths and lengths and are suitable for different belt sanding tools for both wood and metal applications.Ideal for Robotic Finishing
Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belts are highly conformable and consistent, making them an excellent option for robotic metal finishing. They can produce a spec-required, aesthetic finish when used in both manual and robotic processing.Choose the Right Belt for You
3M offers a wide selection of belts that can fit most industrial belt sanders. Wide belt sanders are ideal for sanding and finishing large wood panels. Medium-width belts are suitable for edge or portable belt sanders for sanding or blending wood pieces such as cabinet doors. Narrow belts are used with file tools in metalworking to access small areas or inside corners.Hard-Working Minerals: Aluminum Oxide and Silicon Carbide
Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belts are manufactured with a choice of silicon carbide or aluminum oxide abrasive mineral. Silicon carbide is a synthetic mineral that is very sharp and commonly used for low-pressure applications such as paint prep and finishing. Aluminum oxide is a hard, blocky mineral that provides high cut-rate and long life. While silicon carbide breaks down faster than aluminum oxide, it produces a finer finish.An Alternative for Wheels and Discs
Belt sanders are used for rapid grinding, sanding, and finishing on various surfaces. Sanding wheels and discs may clog quickly, making them less efficient, depending on the material being worked. Belt sanders continue to sand without clogging because small grooves in the abrasive belt open as they go around the arc of the drive wheel.
