Scotch-Brite™ Finishing Flap Brush is constructed from sections of non-woven material slit lengthwise and bonded to a cylindrical core. This long-lasting brush provides improved consistency and greater control over a number of critical prep and finishing tasks, to include polishing and aesthetic finishing, such as brushed finishes on copper, brass, stainless steel, aluminum, and other metals.
- Soft density and med/fine/very fine abrasive grades produce brushed surfaces without compounds
- Provides more surface contact than bristle-type brushes
- Continuously supplies fresh abrasives for consistent, uniform finishes
- Non-woven web is load and heat resistant, enabling fine finishing results on a variety of materials
- Achieves decorative finishes on metal, wood, and composites

What kind of material is the Scotch-Brite™ Finishing Flap Brush made of?
The 3M Scotch-Brite™ Finishing Flap Brush is made with durable synthetic fibers that resist heat and wear.
Can I use this brush to remove rust from metal surfaces?
Our finishing flap brush is designed for polishing, deburring, or cleaning nonferrous metals. We would recommended using a coarser abrasive product like our Scotch Stripping Disc for rust removal on metals.
How long will each individual flap last before needing replacement?
The lifespan of each abrasive flap varies depending on usage rate and application conditions such as size of area being abraded, type of surface finish desired and overall pressure applied.
Is it possible to stack multiple brushes together for increased uniformity in abrading larger areas?
: While you can certainly place several brushes next to one another or end-to-end to make more coverage within a single pass , do not attempt stacking any more than necessary as shape distortion could occur which will negatively affect the brushing results
Scotch-Brite™ Finishing Flap Brush requires no chemical compounds to achieve fine finishes and is ideal for all aesthetic finishing applications, smoothing wood fibers, defuzzing wood, plastic, and composite surfaces, and sealer scuffing.
This brush is available with aluminum oxide abrasive mineral. 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.
Scotch-Brite™ abrasives are unique surface conditioning products with abrasives incorporated into non-woven fiber matrix. Combining abrasives and non-woven material creates an abrasive system that delivers consistent results for the life of the product. The open-web material runs cool and is load resistant, which keeps the abrasive minerals cutting at high performance by limiting clogging of the fibers.
