Recommended Applications
Our Standard Abrasives™ General Purpose 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. It offers a moderate level of aggressiveness, making it a great option for many maintenance and repair operations (MRO). Use it by hand or with a hand pad block.

A Steel Wool Alternative
The General Purpose 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, as steel wool tends to do, which helps enhance operator comfort and safety. The fibers are interspersed with sharp-cutting aluminum oxide mineral: a sharp and friable mineral that fragments under heat and pressure to reveal sharp cutting edges. 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 nonwoven fibers are also spongy and responsive, so they minimize gouging or marring of the workpiece.

Ease of Use
The Standard Abrasives™ General Purpose 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 6 by 9 inch pad may also be cut and shaped to fit smaller surface areas if desired. With up to 60 pads per case, the need for ordering replacements may also be reduced.
