Scotch-Brite™ Metal Finishing Wheel combines conformability with consistent abrasive cutting action to provide uniform brushed stainless and satin finishes. The Metal Finishing Wheel is also used effectively to blend and match #3 or #4 mill finishes on stainless steel and to create brushed or satin finishes on items such as cutlery, appliance trim, builders hardware, and plumbing fixtures.
- High conformability and uniform wear provides consistent cutting power to produce superior satin, mill and brushed finishes
- Open-web construction resists loading and runs cool to provide professional results on stainless steel, brass, aluminum and other metals
- Controlled abrasive action helps prevent undercutting or gouging
- Highly conformable wheel effectively finishes irregular or contoured surfaces
- Convolute construction wound around a fiber core runs smooth to provide fine, uniform finishing

What is the composition of the Scotch-Brite™ Metal Finishing Wheel, MF-WL, 9S Fine, 8 in x 1/2 in x 3in, 4 ea/Case?
The Scotch-Brite™ Metal Finishing Wheel is made of a combination of aluminum oxide abrasive mineral and non-woven material.
What applications can this wheel be used for?
The Scotch-Brite™ Metal Finishing Wheel can be used on various types of metals like stainless steel or brass. It's excellent for cleaning welds or removing rust and paint from surfaces.
How durable is this wheel when compared to other metal finishing wheels available?
Compared to traditional grinding stones or flap discs that tend to wear out rather quickly; these wheels are engineered and designed to stay sharper longer so they maintain their shape better making them last three times as long than the similar products.
Is it possible to purchase a single unit instead of an entire case?
Yes! While our listing shows a full case option (four units per box), we sell individual units as well if you prefer singles purchases.
Scotch-Brite™ Metal Finishing Wheel is a highly conformable wheel that is convolutely wound on a core to run smoothly and help create professional finishing results. It is used on softer metals like aluminum, copper, and brass to blend out minor surface imperfections and handling marks while providing the desired decorative finish on products such as builder's hardware and plumbing fixtures. Typically used on stationary machinery, the wheels are available in diameters of 6 to 16 inches and widths of 1/2 inch and greater. This product is available in grade CRS and MED.
The wheel uses aluminum oxide abrasive, which is widely used in grinding applications due to its high cut-rate, hardness, strength, and low heat retention. Aluminum oxide is suitable on a wide variety of substrates in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys.
Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives are unique surface conditioning products with abrasives incorporated into non-woven nylon or synthetic fibers. Combining abrasives with the fibers 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.
