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

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.
