From the Manufacturer
The 3MTM Scotch-BriteTM Light Duty Hand Pad 6448 combines durability for long life, flexibility for reaching tight areas, and replaces steel wool for conditioning metal surfaces and paint prep without shredding, rusting, or splintering. The durable open-web construction is load resistant, offers long life and consistent abrasive action for cleaning, finishing, and buffing with no need to adjust, turnover, or continue the same project with a new pad. The pad gets into corners and works detailed surfaces without altering the dimensions of the base material. Designed to run cleaner and longer than steel wool, this versatile pad is a useful item for any workshop. The Scotch-Brite Light Duty Hand Pad 6448 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 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.
