Scotch-Brite pads are very flexible, they are also much easier to handle when scuffing up an irregular surface, compared to working with a stiff sheet of sandpaper. I
The Rolls are a 3-D nylon fibre-sanding product that provides an excellent surface finish. It is ideal for dry sanding of primers, removal of rust spots and dirty surfaces cleaning, thus creating an excellent base for the next lack layer. Suitable for cleaning and finishing surfaces by hand. Can also be used for woodworking, metalworking, synthetics fabrication and maintenance operations. A thin but tough, highly conformable, sharp cutting, non-woven abrasive.
Scratching the Surface with Grey Scotch-Brite Scuff Pads!
The grey Smirdex Scotch-Brite pads/rolls are not an alternative to sanding. Instead the pads are designed to put fine scratches in the primer or paint, providing the â€œtoothâ€ needed to ensure that subsequent coats adequately bond to the surface. Good intercoat adhesion prevents one layer of paint from peeling from another.
The scratches that the grey Scotch-Brite pads produce are equivalent to those produced when sanding with 600-800 grit sandpaper. You can also use the pads to scuff a painted surface prior to clear coating. Unless you are clear coating a metallic paint, donâ€™t worry that these fine scratches will be visible through the clear coat. They wonâ€™t. The tooth that the scratches give to the substrate also allows the paint or clear coat to grip the surface, preventing sagging on vertical surfaces.
When scuffing up a surface, you need to scratch up any shiny surfaces that you are painting until they are dull. On an older painted surface you should clean the substrate prior to scuffing in the same way that you would prep a surface prior to vinyl application. Cleaning the surface prevents driving any surface contaminants into the paint. The contaminants could compromise intercoat adhesion. After cleaning, scuff the surface. Merely scratch the surface dry until it is uniformly dull. Then clean surface again to remove any residue using a lint-free rag and isopropyl alcohol.
The red is a very fine grade pad, a perfect solution whether you are finishing flat panels or contoured surfaces. Ideal for awkward areas, like door shuts or engine compartments. Easy to cut into desired lengths for hand sanding or use with orbital sanders. If Ron Burgundy was into refinishing, our scotch would be his choice...."I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch".
General purpose for surface conditioning, transport primer preparation, removal of oxidisation and light rust. Also ideal for commercial vehicles for preparing aluminium panels prior to priming for rivet heads.
Superior alternative to steel wool, wire brushes, sandpaper, and other nonwoven products for cleaning or finishing tasks.
Very fine grade aluminium oxide abrasive cleans, finishes, grains, denibs, and defuzzes.
Suitable for use on wood, metal, plastics, ceramics, porcelain, glass, rubber, or composites.
Reusable pad resists tearing, splintering, shredding, loading and will never rust, providing a long, useful life.
Can be folded, stacked, or rolled for effective cleaning or conditioning on flat, irregular, or contoured surfaces.
