Scotch-Brite™ Finishing Flap Brush is constructed from sections of non-woven material slit lengthwise and bonded to a cylindrical core. This long-lasting brush provides improved consistency and greater control over a number of critical prep and finishing tasks, to include polishing and aesthetic finishing, such as brushed finishes on copper, brass, stainless steel, aluminum, and other metals.
- Soft density and med/fine/very fine abrasive grades produce brushed surfaces without compounds
- Provides more surface contact than bristle-type brushes
- Continuously supplies fresh abrasives for consistent, uniform finishes
- Non-woven web is load and heat resistant, enabling fine finishing results on a variety of materials
- Achieves decorative finishes on metal, wood, and composites

What makes the Scotch-Brite Finishing Flap Brush different from other finishing brushes?
This brush allows for controlled finish while still being able to maintain edge durability. It also has an open-web that resists loading which helps increase product life and provides consistent results.
Can I use this finishing flap brush on all types of metals?
Yes! This particular brush can be used on various kinds of metal surfaces such as aluminum, brass, bronze, copper and many more!
How long will the Scotch-Brite™ Finishing Flap Brush last before needing to be replaced?

. Will my finished piece have swirl marks after using this brushing tools.
. No. By design the flaps flex so as to minimize cutting action within soft metals minimizing tangential scratches/swirls associated when using coarser products
Scotch-Brite™ Finishing Flap Brush requires no chemical compounds to achieve fine finishes and is ideal for all aesthetic finishing applications, smoothing wood fibers, defuzzing wood, plastic, and composite surfaces, and sealer scuffing.
This brush is available with aluminum oxide abrasive mineral. Aluminum oxide is a popular choice among industrial professionals because of its cut-rate and long life. This mineral is a tough, durable abrasive that self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges in use, whereas traditional abrasives, such as garnet, quickly wear down with use. Due to its high cut-rate, hardness, strength, and low heat retention, aluminum oxide mineral is widely used in grinding applications in addition to sanding and finishing use. Aluminum oxide is suitable on a wide variety of substrates in both woodworking and metalworking, including ferrous alloys.
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.
