Scotch-Brite™ Light Duty Hand Pad 6448 - The Versatile and Durable Cleaning Solution

The Scotch-Brite™ Light Duty Hand Pad 6448 is a versatile and durable cleaning solution that offers long life and consistent abrasive action for cleaning, finishing, and buffing. Its durable open-web construction is load resistant, which means there is no need to adjust, turnover, or continue the same project with a new pad. This pad is designed to get into corners and work detailed surfaces without altering the dimensions of the base material.

Unlike steel wool, the Scotch-Brite Light Duty Hand Pad 6448 is designed to run cleaner and longer. It can be used right out of the box by hand, paired with a hand pad block, or run on an in-line sander for faster completion on larger areas.

This dark grey pad is filled with silicon carbide abrasive mineral, a synthetic mineral that is very sharp and commonly used for low-pressure applications such as paint prep. While it breaks down faster than aluminum oxide, it produces a superior finish.

Scotch-Brite™ Abrasives - Consistent Results for the Life of the Product

Scotch-Brite™ abrasives are unique surface conditioning products with abrasives incorporated into non-woven fiber matrix. Combining abrasives and non-woven material 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.
