Scotch-Brite™ Multi-Finishing Wheel is a convolute-constructed wheel that provides cleaning and final finishing for stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper, and other metals. The combination of mineral grades and soft density make the wheel well suited for final finishing applications where a high degree of conformability and less density are needed.
- Provides uniform grain for final finishing on stainless steel, ferrous, and non-ferrous metals
- Highly conformable for consistent finishing on contoured, curved and other surfaces
- Moderate aggressiveness and lighter density provide controlled wear for consistent results over the life of the wheel
- Convolute construction provides a balanced, smooth running wheel throughout product life
- Open, non-woven web runs cool and lessens impact on heat-sensitive materials

What is the Scotch-Brite™ Multi-Finishing Wheel used for?
The 3M Scotch-Brite™ Multi-Finishing Wheel, MU-WL, is designed to produce uniform finishes on different materials including metals, plastics and composites.
How many finishing wheels are included in each case of Scotch-Brite™ Multi-Finishing Wheels?
Each case contains two (2) 4 in x 2 in x 1 in Medium grade multi-finishing wheels.
Is this product easy to install on a power tool?
Yes! This wheel has been optimized for smooth and fast-running performance with minimal vibration. Easy installation and replacement make it convenient to use.
Can I use this wheel at high speeds?
The maximum operating speed is determined by using the smallest diameter wire or abrasive fiber brush selected. It can be used with a variety of tools up to a maximum speed of between 6,000 RPM –14,500 RPM depending upon size.
C an you tell me what grit rating is associated with the medium grade selection of this product?
The MU-WL medium-grade finishing wheel option provides effective surface conditioning results because its fine silicon carbide abrasive particles are rated at approximately equivalent to P320 grit.
The Scotch-Brite™ Multi-Finishing Wheel is an excellent choice for achieving #3 or #4 finishes on stainless steel and other metals on flat, contoured, and curved surfaces. The wheel is designed with an open-web construction that resists loading and runs cool, reducing the risk of part discoloration and warping while extending the wheel's life. The Multi-Finishing Wheel is available in coarse, medium, and fine grade abrasive.
The Multi-Finishing Wheel uses silicon carbide abrasive, which is a synthetic mineral that is very sharp and commonly used for low-pressure applications such as paint prep. Although it breaks down faster than aluminum oxide, it produces a superior finish.
Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives are unique surface conditioning products that incorporate abrasives into non-woven nylon or synthetic fibers. This combination creates an abrasive system that delivers consistent results for the life of the product. The material used in the Multi-Finishing Wheel runs cool and is load resistant, which keeps the abrasive minerals cutting at high performance by limiting clogging of the fibers.
