Scotch-Brite™ EX2 Deburring Wheel is a convolute-constructed wheel that provides mid-range aggressiveness and hardness for deburring, edge radius, blending, polishing, and finishing. This deburring wheel performs best when consistently presented with a sharp edge or metal burrs.
- Wheel edge can be dressed for effective deburring, finishing and polishing of all metal alloys and many plastics and composites
- Tough, layered, unitized construction can operate clockwise or counterclockwise directions
- Densities and grades ranging from soft and conformable to hard and aggressive offer utility for a wide variety of applications
- Resists smearing for cleaner surfaces and less preparation
- Minimizes heat build up to lessen impact on heat-sensitive materials

What is the purpose of Scotch-Brite™ EX2 Deburring Wheel, X2-WL?
The main purpose of this deburring wheel is to clean and remove rust, paint, and corrosion from surfaces.
How can I use it effectively?
This wheel can be used with a bench motor or straight shaft tool for maximum efficiency. Apply light pressure and work carefully on your surface to ensure that you achieve desired results without damaging the material.
Is it safe for sensitive materials like aluminum or titanium?
Yes! This deburring wheel is designed not only to remove tough debris but also do so without scratching or marring softer materials like aluminum or titanium.
Does 3M offer any other similar products that would complement this one if I need additional tools?
Yes! There are a number of complementary Scotch-Brite™ abrasive products that we offer depending on your needs surface type. For example, if you need something more aggressive than our medium grade EX2 Deburr Wheel there are also coarse and very fine options available.
The Scotch-Brite™ EX2 Deburring Wheel is a high-performance wheel that combines mineral and density to provide a moderate degree of conformability, wheel hardness, and edge retention. The wheel is uniquely suited to applications where these features are needed. The wheel is designed with a unique resin system that helps minimize smearing and reduces heat build-up. The open-web construction of the wheel ensures that it runs cool and resists loading, reducing the risk of part discoloration and warping while extending the life of the wheel. The EX2 Deburring Wheel is available in fine and medium grade abrasives.
The EX2 Deburring Wheel is available 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, on the other hand, 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.
Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives are unique surface conditioning products that incorporate abrasives into non-woven nylon or synthetic fibers. This combination creates an abrasive system that delivers consistent results for the life of the product. The open-web material used in the EX2 Deburring Wheel runs cool and is load resistant, which keeps the abrasive minerals cutting at high performance by limiting clogging of the fibers.
