Ease of Use
Scotch-Brite™ Star may be used with 3M mandrel 944 (sold separately).The threaded attachments fasten to mandrel 944 for safe use on a die grinder. Scotch-Brite™ Star requires low pressure when used at correct operating speeds. The abrasive is available in coarse (CRS) and very fine (VFN) grades. Use a coarse abrasive when refining a deep grind line/scratch or when a more aggressive scratch pattern is desired, and use a fine abrasive when a soft, fine scratch pattern is desired. Scotch-Brite™ Star comes in packs of 50 or 100 stars per case to minimize the need for ordering replacements and to help reduce operating costs.

The Many Benefits of Open Web Abrasives
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. By reducing the need for cleaning chemicals and pastes, and replacing wire brushes that can break off and cause injury. From aesthetic finishing to deburring and more, Scotch-Brite abrasives work fast and deliver consistent results, part after part.
