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 is the Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belt used for?
The 3M Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belt, 1/4 in x 24 in, A VFN, 20 ea/Case is designed to provide a consistent finish on various metals and other materials. It's ideal for cleaning, finishing or deburring surfaces.
Can this belt be used with any type of grinder?
This conditioning belt can be used with most types of portable grinders such as bench platen, backstand and inline ones that have contact wheels measuring at least a quarter inch wide.
How durable is the belt against wear and tear?
Made from aluminum oxide abrasive particles bonded onto a flexible nylon backing material web reinforced by triangular-shaped points adhered to its surface known as non-woven fiber construction technology which reduces smearing while maintaining abrasive cutting power resulting in longer life than conventional grinding belts.
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 use on a variety of belt sanding tools for both wood and metal applications.Ideal for Robotic Finishing
Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belts are an excellent option for robotic metal finishing due to their wide range of conformability options and high consistency. They can generate a spec-required, aesthetic finish when used in both manual and robotic processing.Choose the Right Belt for You
3M offers a broad selection of belts to fit most industrial belt sanders. Wide belt sanders are used for sanding and finishing large wood panels. Medium-width belts fit onto edge or portable belt sanders for sanding or blending wood pieces such as cabinet doors, and 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 a variety of 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.
