Scotch Brite™ Surface Conditioning Film Backed Belt is a non-woven belt used for cleaning, finishing, blending and deburring applications. The smooth, tough, stretch-resistant nylon film backing works well with platens or when reduced friction is required.
- Great multi-purpose belt, ideal for cleaning, finishing, blending and deburring
- Nylon film backing is stretch resistant for close, ongoing cutting action
- The film backed belts work great on stroke sanders when reduced friction on the back of the belt is desired
- Gaps between nylon fibers allow debris to escape, helping to reduce loading
- Fibers break down gradually to reveal fresh mineral, producing consistent cuts
- Available in a range of grades, minerals and converted forms

What are the dimensions and quantity of the 3M's Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Film Backed Belt, SC-BF, A/O Very Fine?
The dimensions of this product are 1-1/2 inches by 91 inches. You will receive a total of ten belts per case.
Can these belts be used for wet sanding or dry sanding applications?
These conditioning belts are designed to work best in a dry sanding application.
Is this film-backed belt suitable for use on stainless steel surfaces?
Yes, it is! This belt is good for finishing stainless steel as well as aluminum, brass, copper and other metal alloys.
Will using this product leave scratch marks on my finished metal surface?
No - our Scotch-Brite™ Finish helps reduce potential scratches with its non-woven construction that conforms to the workpiece's contours without damaging or gouging them while still leaving a fine finish.
How long do these belts last before I need to replace them with new ones?
. It totally depends on your usage but please note that typically few passes can achieve enough results rather than excessive pressure which usually indicates it’s time to switch out.
Multi-Purpose Belt Great for Tackling Multiple Applications
When working on flat parts, it's important to have a belt that can abrade the surface closely. The Scotch Brite™ Surface Conditioning Film Backed Belt was designed specifically for this purpose. The nylon-backed belt has a reduced friction backing and is low stretch, making it less likely to yield or stretch when run. This belt backing works well when the standard scrim belts stretch and fall off the machine.
Versatile Belt Options
One of the best benefits of the Scotch Brite™ Surface Conditioning Film Backed Belt is its versatility. It comes in a range of minerals, grades, and converted forms, so you're likely to find the right match for your application. You can choose between silicon carbide or aluminum oxide mineral. Aluminum oxide is available in coarse (CRS), very fine (VFN), and medium (MED) grades. Silicon carbide is available in super fine (SFN), very fine (VFN), and medium (MED) grades. Aluminum oxide is a synthetic mineral known for its sharp cut, durability, and long life. Silicon carbide tends to break down faster than aluminum oxide but will also produce a finer finish.
The Many Benefits of Scotch Brite™ Belts
The Scotch Brite™ Surface Conditioning Film Backed Belt is available in narrow, wide, and standard sizes and is commonly run on a belt sander. Narrow belts are a good match for workpieces with narrow areas and nooks and crannies, like lobes on a crankshaft or camshaft. Conversely, wide belts are a good match for larger workpieces like stamped parts, sheet metal parts, or dies. Regardless of the belt chosen, operators can rely on consistent performance, which is what they've come to expect from Scotch-Brite™ abrasives. Nonwoven technology makes Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives and belts unique. A combination of fiber strands, resin, and abrasive mineral forms a thick, open web.
The spring-like nature of the fibers responds to contours and effectively removes unwanted burrs, soils, and contaminants while maintaining the geometry of the workpiece, which in turn reduces rework and boosts productivity. Gaps in the web allow swarf to escape, so debris does not clog the mineral. Fibers in the web continually break down with use to reveal fresh mineral for fast cut, long life, and consistent results – part after part.
