Our durable Scotch-Brite™ SE Surface Conditioning Low-Stretch Belt was built to last and stands up to both extended wear and sharp edges. It offers consistent, high quality results and is a time- and cost-saving choice for cleaning, blending, deburring and finishing on a variety of metals, composites, and wood. A wide range of sizes and grades meet many different application requirements.
The firm, stretch-resistant woven nylon backing embedded in our Scotch-Brite™ SE Surface Conditioning Low-Stretch Belt is well suited for high belt tensions and makes it is ideal for backstand use, file belt tools, and any other machine applications that allow for only minimal belt stretch.
Our Scotch-Brite open web design resists loading for longer life and consistency and offers the flexibility needed to achieve consistent results on contoured surfaces and edges without gouging or undercutting the workpiece. This means greater productivity and lower inventory costs. Operators rely on Scotch-Brite belts to produce a consistent finish part after part, for the life of the belt. We engineered the belt to perform high initial and extended rates of cut, while maintaining superior edge durability. It is an excellent starting point for working on intricate details, contours, and edges to remove surface imperfections, grindlines, mill, and other marks. If you find that your application requires a firmer or smoother backing than the low-stretch belt provides, you may want to try a film-backed belt.
Scotch-Brite™ SE Surface Conditioning Low-Stretch Belts are constructed with aluminum oxide abrasive for coarser grades and silicon carbide for the finer grades. Silicon carbide is a synthetic mineral that is very sharp and commonly used for low-pressure applications such as paint prep and finishing. Aluminum oxide is a hard, blocky mineral that provides high cut-rate and long life. While silicon carbide breaks down faster than aluminum oxide, it produces a finer finish.
Belt sanders are used for rapid grinding, sanding, and finishing on surfaces of many different sizes and shapes. 3M offers a broad selection of belts to fit almost any industrial belt sander. Wide belt sanders are used for finishing or deburring large sheet metal parts. Medium width belts fit onto backstands, benchstands, and portable belt sanders and are used for scratch refinement, reaching Ra finish requirements, or applying a stainless steel aesthetic finish. Narrow belts are used with file tools or expander wheels to access small areas or inside corners.
Nonwoven technology makes our Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives unique. A combination of fiber strands, resin, and abrasive mineral forms a thick, open web. The spring-like nature of the fibers responds to contours and effectively removes unwanted burrs, soils and contaminants while maintaining the geometry of the workpiece, which in turn reduces rework and boosts productivity. Gaps in the web allow swarf to escape, so debris does not clog the mineral. Fibers in the web continually break down with use to reveal fresh mineral for exceptional consistency, superior cut performance and extremely long service life. Scotch-Brite products not only enhance productivity, but also increase operator safety. From aesthetic finishing to weld blending, deburring and more, Scotch-Brite abrasives work fast and deliver consistent results, part after part.
