3M non-woven technology
The practical and flexible abrasive fleece consists of three components: nylon fibers, synthetic resin and an abrasive mineral. An open and particularly flexible three-dimensional product was created from this combination. This open structure prevents the abrasive from clogging, warping or discoloration of the workpiece. The fleeces are constructed in such a way that new abrasives are constantly applied to the work surface, thus guaranteeing consistent work results and a longer service life.
The enormous flexibility and the associated spring effect guarantee easier work, with the abrasive fleece optimally adapting to the workpieces and their contours. Numerous combinations of the components lead to many product solutions and thus the possibility of processing almost all materials with the appropriate fleece.
3M nonwoven products can be applied dry, wet, with oil or with a mild detergent.
Experience products that offer a long service life and always deliver consistently good results.
What can the abrasive fleeces be used for?
Our range of non-woven abrasives can be used for the surface treatment of numerous materials:
- stainless steel
- non-ferrous metals
- filler/ putty
Remove tarnish, rust, oxide, paint, coatings, or gasket residue using the following products: WR-SH 7557 / CF-HP 7447 / 7447 Pro / CP-HP 7440
These products are suitable for removing primer, paint or dirt and for maintaining boats and airplanes, cast iron or malleable iron: CF-HP 7447 / CF-HP 7448 / 7448 Pro
Remove burrs from surfaces and edges as well as punching and cutting burrs without creating secondary burrs. By removing the burrs, you also increase the corrosion resistance of the surfaces. The following abrasive fleeces are recommended for successful deburring: CP-SH 7440 / WR-SH 7557 / CF-HP 7447 / 7447 Pro
Finishing and leveling
The following fleeces are suitable for adjusting after bending and welding work and for decorative surfaces on metals: CF-HP 7448 / 7448 Pro / MX-HP 64660
Polishing / Woodworking
The following products are recommended for a final industrial polish in mold making and woodworking as well as for use in model making: CF-HP 7447 / 7447 Pro

The 3M Twist Lok 961 is a high-quality plastic holder that can work with almost all Scotch-Brite abrasive fleece. It has a hook system that fixes the fleece perfectly, but also releases it again without any problems. Its use is particularly recommended for hard-to-reach places and for larger and heavily soiled areas. The hand block is easy to use, makes work easier and protects hands from heat and cleaning agents.

Scotch-Brite Nonwoven Materials:
CF – Clean & Finish Material:
Is a particularly flexible and universally usable material. Can be used for smoothing, matting or cleaning the surfaces as well as for deburring or removing wood fibers.
CP - Cut & Polish Material:
This very dense and durable abrasive fleece is often used for finishing work, where it guarantees a dense and even result.
WR – Wear Resistant Material:
It is an extremely durable and tear-resistant material and therefore ideally suited for applications with the highest demands.
What are the advantages of using abrasive fleece?
Working with 3M Abrasive Pads has numerous advantages. We have summarized a few for you in bullet points:
- the shape of the workpiece is not changed
- corrosion resistance of surfaces is increased by removing burrs
- surface roughness is reduced quickly and efficiently
- produces an even surface appearance
- can be used dry, wet, with oil or a mild detergent
- the open structure prevents clogging
- no splintering, thereby increased work safety
- surface is kept cool
- does not produce deformations or tarnishing
- burrs are removed without creating secondary burrs
- guarantees a long service life
- low noise working
- waste and rework are reduced
- Costs are reduced
By using 3M quality products, you reduce scrap and rework in all work steps, which not only reduces your costs but also ensures efficient work.
