Featured Products

  • Scotch-Brite™ Hand Pad 7447

    Tough, reusable and long-lasting, the Scotch-Brite Hand Pad 7447 saves time and material costs, leveling imperfections in metal, wood, ceramics, glass and other materials. Unlike grade 1 steel wool, the Hand Pad 7447 won’t shred, splinter, rust or quickly wear. Its aluminum-oxide abrasive continually exposes fresh cutting edges during use, making cleaning and finishing jobs a cinch and giving you smooth, uniform surfaces time after time.

  • Scotch-Brite™ 7447 PRO Disc

    Featuring very fine aluminum oxide abrasive incorporated into flexible nonwoven fibers, this disc is designed for excellent consistency whether it’s used for tough cleaning or fine finishing, use after use. It is a superior alternative to steel wool, wire brushes, sandpaper, and other nonwoven products for cleaning or finishing tasks.
