Product Details
  • Quickly removes rust, paint, mill scale and coatings from metal
  • High-strength fiber resists chunking and performs well on edges
  • High conformability provides a larger contact patch for faster removal rates
  • Silicon carbide mineral cuts aggressively and leaves a fine finish
  • Resists loading for consistent cutting action
  • High speed rating, low vibration and low spark

Scotch-Brite™ Clean and Strip XT Pro Disc features silicon carbide abrasive mineral incorporated into an open nylon web. It effectively removes rust, paint, mill scale, coatings and adhesives from surfaces without significantly altering the base material. The high-strength fibers are highly conformable, resist chunking and loading, and perform well on the edges of a workpiece.

Take Advantage of High Conformability
With its reengineered fiber, the Scotch-Brite™ Clean and Strip XT Pro Disc allows operators to take advantage of all the benefits that come with increased conformability without compromising strength. With increased conformability, this disc achieves a larger contact area with the workpiece for faster removal rates. It also conforms to weld bead ripples to polish welds without removing them, and works in hard-to-reach areas without damaging the substrate.

In addition to its high conformability, the Scotch-Brite™ Clean and Strip XT Pro Disc offers low vibration, decreased chunking, low spark, a high speed rating and long life. That all adds up to a disc you can spin onto your angle grinder with confidence.

Spongy Web, Sharp Mineral
To engineer our Scotch-Brite™ Clean and Strip XT Pro Disc, silicon carbide mineral is combined with non-woven nylon fibers using resin. Silicon carbide is a very sharp synthetic mineral commonly used in low-pressure applications like paint prep. The resin bond strengthens the disc and gradually breaks down to reveal new fibers and sharp mineral — delivering a consistent cut over the life of the abrasive.

Quickly removes rust and coatings from metal surfaces
The 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, minimizing loading of the abrasive.

Customer Reviews
Scotch-Brite™ Clean and Strip XT Pro Disc is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this disc! I’ve used this disc in restoring vintage a American made vises that I restore and sell. It easily removes old paint, and really anything that happens to be in the surface of the vise. I will remove most of the paint with a wire wheel, and then finish up with this. It also does a great job on the “slide”... the part of the vise that covers the screw and guides the moveable jaw through the body of the vise. It will even out and shine up the surface without being too aggressive, not gouging or removing much metal at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for finish work Great finish product for a lot of applications. Makes things looks amazing after using it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from will keep these on hand I use these to clean up mill scale on steel parts the are to be welded. I run them on a variable speed grinder on low setting so the pad does not heat up as much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked extremely well I used this disk to shape and smooth an epoxy repair of plastic components. It performed very well making the job fast and easy. There was very little wear on the wheel so it is still available for additional jobs. I received the disk in a box of free samples from 3M.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! Great product! As all of 3m products they do the job and last. Will not fall apart or fly into pieces when used reasonably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW. Delicate but efficient removal that lasts? Wow wow wow. I really don't use strip discs very often because they typically just turn to bits of flying strip disc the first time they touch metal and just do a mediocre job. I used this to clean about a total of 25' of 2.5" square tubing and maybe 10' of other similarly sized steel. I still have pad left and removing mill scale has never been easier. I didn't damage the base metal, so even thin gauge material stays whole, but the scale just flies off with one, maybe two quick passes. The fact that it's a threaded center is just icing on the cake for me, but this thing lasts a shockingly long time, does the job incredibly well and keeps my clumsy self from gouging the base metal like I would with a flap disc or anything else. I'm going to order a whole bunch of these and stop using my flap discs for weld prep. It's rare that a new product comes along that changes my process or habit.
