Scotch-Brite™ EXL Unitized Wheels feature a soft, conformable consistency that effectively smooths, deburrs and finishes the edges of metal alloys, as well as many plastics and composites. There are a variety of densities and grades starting from a very soft 2 density for applications requiring conformability to a hard, aggressive 8 density for maximum cut and durability.
- 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
- Conformability allows abrasive to stay in contact with complex-shaped parts in robotic processing
- 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 Scotch-Brite™ EXL Unitized Wheel used for?
The Scotch-Brite™ EXL Unitized Wheel is designed to provide multi-purpose material removal and finishing in a single step, effectively blending and polishing hard or soft metals without sacrificing their integrity.
How coarse is the 8A Coarse wheel?
The 8A Coarse wheel has a high mineral concentration and aggressive abrasive properties, making it ideal for deburring parts and removing heavy rust, scale, oxidation or coatings from different surfaces.
What are the dimensions of this product per case?
Each case contains four (4) XL-UW unitized wheels that measure six inches by half an inch by one inch. These dimensions ensure easy integration with most bench motors while also providing excellent access to curves or corners as needed.
Does 3M offer any warranty for its Scotch-Brite™ products?
While materials may wear down over time depending on frequency of use, we offer satisfaction warranties covering manufacturing defects at no additional cost. If you experience any issues within our guidelines (usually two years from purchase), please feel free to reach out!
Consistent Performance on a Variety of Substrates
The Scotch-Brite™ EXL Unitized Wheel is designed to provide a clean edge without smearing, which reduces the need for additional clean up and preparation. It is optimized for use on a die grinder, minimizing heat buildup during operation, making it ideal for use on heat-sensitive materials. This wheel is filled with abrasive minerals that quickly smooth edges of metal, plastic, and composites. It is available in fine, medium, coarse, and extra coarse grades with aluminum oxide, and very fine and fine grades with silicon carbide.
Ideal for Robotic Deburring
Scotch-Brite™ EXL Unitized Wheel is an excellent option for robotic deburring due to its wide range of conformability options and high consistency. It quickly removes burrs and sharp edges in end-of-arm tooling operations, delivering consistent performance throughout the abrasive's life. Scotch-Brite™ offers unique surface conditioning products with abrasives incorporated into nonwoven nylon fibers. Combining abrasives with the fibers creates an abrasive system that delivers consistent results over the life of the product. The open-web material is load-resistant and keeps the abrasive minerals cutting at high performance by limiting clogging of the nylon fibers.
- Aluminum oxide in fine, medium, coarse, and extra coarse grades
- Silicon carbide in very fine and fine grades
