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 3M's Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belt?
The Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Belt from 3M helps in blending, deburring and finishing metal surfaces.
What are the dimensions of SC-BS, A/O Medium, 6 in x 48 in, 5 ea/Case belt?
The SC-BS (Scotch Brite) belt measures 6 inches by 48 inches and comes in a pack of five.
How does this belt differ from other abrasives on the market?
Unlike traditional abrasives which remove material to create a finish on metal surfaces; Scotch-Brite belts tend to smear the burrs into themselves while leaving behind an improved surface finish with no compromise on quality.
Is it compatible with all types of metals such as stainless steel and aluminum?
Yes! This product works effectively across most materials including aluminium, mild steel, or even stainless steel. They can be employed for various applications like heavy stock removal to polishing & finishing.
Can these belts be used more than once?
It depends upon how heavily you use them; however certain grades are designed particularly longer lifespan when compared to other abrasive solutions. We recommend ensuring suitable work condition adjustments will help maximize their longevity.
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 either 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.
