Our Standard Abrasives™ Hand Pad, a white cleaning hand pad, can be used for lightweight hand applications – use it on fine finishes to lightly clean, blend, finish, polish, deburr, and prepare surfaces for paint or other coatings. It is designed for use on metal, composite, or plastic surfaces and can be used wet or dry.
Our white Standard Abrasives™ Hand Pad is a non-woven abrasive pad with the flexibility to fully cover contours as well as get into tight corners, ridges, and other uneven surfaces. Excellent for fine finishes and light cleaning, this is our least aggressive hand pad.
A Steel Wool Alternative
A Standard Abrasives™ Hand Pad is a great alternative to steel wool, files, scrapers, wire brushes and sandpaper sheets. The high grade resin system is strong and durable, yet the open web is soft and pliable, too. Nylon fibers on the pad will not splinter, which helps enhance operator comfort and safety. The fibers are interspersed with sharp-cutting aluminum oxide mineral. While nylon fibers break down, fresh mineral is exposed, so the abrasive cuts sharper for longer. As you apply even and persistent pressure, a consistent scratch pattern is revealed. These non-woven fibers are also spongy and responsive, so they minimize gouging or marring of the workpiece.
Ease of Use
The Standard Abrasives™ Hand Pad may be used dry, with solvents or with water-based detergents, depending on your application and project needs. Using these compounds may help wash away unwanted swarf and debris while you clean. Moreover, the pad can be washed between uses for repeated use, without rusting. To enhance grip and help reduce operator fatigue, the hand pad can be fastened to a hand pad holder (sold separately). The 6x9" pad may also be cut and shaped to fit smaller surface areas if desired.
