Scotch-Brite™ Cut and Polish Unitized Wheel is a tightly layered, durable, unitized wheel available in medium to hard densities. The wheel works well for aggressive deburring, blending, and finishing on harder metals and for applications where portability is needed. This wheel provides an excellent starting point for jobs requiring the availability of small diameters and narrow widths.
- Durable, aggressive wheel for tough blending, finishing, and deburring on harder metals like stainless steel, carbon steel, high nickel alloys
- High concentration of abrasive mineral is fast cutting and consistently produces a bright finish throughout the life of the wheel
- Flexible, non-woven construction provides controlled abrasive action that helps prevent undercutting or gouging
- Tightly layered, unitized construction can operate in clockwise or counterclockwise directions
- Scotch-Brite™ material resists loading and wears at a uniform rate to provide continuous cutting action

What is a Scotch-Brite Cut and Polish Unitized Wheel?
A Scotch-Brite Cut and Polish Unitized Wheel is a wheel-shaped product made up of non-woven abrasive layers that provide consistent, uniform buffing action. It is used for removing scratches, rust, burrs, and surface contaminants.
What does CP-UW 7A Coarse mean?
CP-UW stands for Cut and Polish-Unitized Wheel while 7A refers to the grade of the abrasive mineral being used that is aluminum oxide. Coarse means it has large particles which make it ideal for heavy-duty applications such as preparing surfaces before painting or welding.
Is this pack size appropriate for industrial use?
Yes! The 3M Scotch-Brite™ Cut and Polish Unitized Wheel (CP-UW), 7A Coarse comes in a case containing twenty individual wheels measured at three inches by one-half inch thickness with three-eighth inches arbor hole diameter each. This makes this pack ideal both for small-scale operations requiring several discs per job or larger facilities tackling bigger tasks where having multiple backup units readily available will come in handy.
The Scotch-Brite™ Cut and Polish Unitized Wheel is a versatile replacement for many conventional abrasive products such as rubber bonded wheels and small set-up wheels. It is made with a combination of aluminum oxide mineral and tough nylon web, which makes it ideal for producing uniform results. The unitized construction and aggressive properties of the wheel produce a smooth running, fast cutting wheel that runs cool and resists loading.Aluminum Oxide Abrasive Mineral
The Scotch-Brite™ Cut and Polish Unitized Wheel is filled with aluminum oxide abrasive mineral. This mineral is a popular choice among industrial professionals due to its cut-rate and long life. It is a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges in use, unlike traditional abrasives such as garnet, which quickly wear down with use. Aluminum oxide mineral is suitable for use on a wide variety of substrates in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys. Its high cut-rate, hardness, strength, and low heat retention make it a good choice in grinding applications.Scotch-Brite™ Industrial Abrasives
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 runs cool and is load resistant, which keeps the abrasive minerals cutting at high performance by limiting clogging of the fibers.
