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 kind of material is the Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Film Backed Belt, SC-BF, A/O Medium made of?
The Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Film Backed Belt, SC-BF, A/O Medium is made with aluminum oxide abrasive particles bonded to a film backing.
What type of surfaces can I use it on?
This product can be used on a variety of surfaces including stainless steel, brass and copper alloys.
Is this available in other sizes than 50 in x 75in?
Yes. This product comes in various sizing options suited for different needs based on your project requirements.
How long does this belt last before needing replacement?
It's difficult to give exact time duration as it varies from project-to-project. If you notice any significant reduction on the abrasiveness or if the belt appears frayed/scraped/ripped then it's typically a good point to replacing it with another one.
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.
