They say necessity is the mother of all invention.
Take the story of a young man name Al Boese. While working for 3M™ as a mail clerk and later a lab technician, a supervisor told him technical work may not be his strong suit. Rather than throw in the towel, Boese studied night and day, performing experiments on nonwoven fibers and adhesives — until the Scotch-Brite™ scrubbing pad was born in 1958.
His work spearheaded the use of non-woven technology in industrial abrasives. Over time, 3M’s Scotch-Brite™ brand evolved from kitchen sponges to abrasive discs, abrasive wheels, abrasive belts and hand pads. Scotch-Brite Industrial Abrasives are ideal for use in metalworking tasks like:
- Surface Preparation
- Metal Deburring
- Metal Finishing
Don't miss out on big summer savings!
Boese’s willingness to explore uncharted territory exemplifies the spirit of 3M innovation. It’s why we partner with 3M™.
