An Aggressive Cut for Tough Applications
Scotch-Brite™ SL Surface Conditioning Disc is a highly durable product and a good starting point for light grinding and blending. Its wear-resistant qualities also make it a good match for final finishing. This versatile disc may be used on both hard and soft metals, including stainless and carbon steels. Among all Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Discs, this disc is moderately conformable and tends to be one of the more durable, tough discs. When selecting from various Scotch-Brite™ Surface Conditioning Discs, this disc should be chosen for aggressive applications.
The aggressive cut of the Scotch-Brite™ SL Surface Conditioning Disc is partly attributable to the mineral and grade. It incorporates aluminum oxide — a popular mineral choice among industrial professionals because of its high cut-rate, hardness, strength and low heat retention. Grades include: super-duty coarse (CRS SD), heavy-duty coarse (CRS HD), coarse (CRS) and medium (MED). Choose coarser mineral grades to deliver a tougher, deeper scratch.

Hook and Loop attachment systems are great for work spaces where adhesive-backed discs may become contaminated by dust or dirt and are often used in applications where an adhesive-backed disc may be too aggressive. The hook-and-loop attachment also provides an added level of buoyancy and cushion, preventing the abrasive from gouging the workpiece. This disc may be used with a disc sander or r
