3M™ Scotch-Brite™ Logo: Finishing Strong Since 1958

Supplier Spotlight: Choose 3M™ Scotch-Brite™ Industrial Abrasives for Consistent Metal Finishes

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
  • Cleaning
