Hand Pads: 'Scotchbrite' Type Nonwoven Abrasive

Applications: For hand use, especially useful on shapes and curves where conventional abrasives are not flexible enough. Hand pads are also much easier on the hands than coated paper and cloth abrasives. Recommended selection:

  • Medium S: This is surprisingly effective on metal, including stainless steel, giving similar results to some 'Coarse A' pads.
  • Fine A: Good for smoothing wood and rubbing down old paint prior to painting.
  • Very Fine A: A softer handpad, ideal for curves and shapes. Good for sculpture in wood or metal.
  • Ultra Fine S: For final rubbing down of fillers or between coatings on multi-layered surface treatments. Equivalent to grade 1000.
  • General Purpose: Green pads with resin only (no abrasive grit) for lighter cleaning duties.


  • Made from non-woven fleece type material impregnated with selected resin and abrasive grain.
  • Highly flexible. Can be folded, cut, stuffed in recesses etc.
  • Resistant to loading. The open structure helps avoid clogging up. Shake off dust and continue to use.
  • Size approx 9" x 6", 224x158mm.
  • 'S' Grades are grey in colour and use silicon carbide abrasive. 'A' grades are maroon and use aluminium oxide abrasive. General Purpose pads are green.
  • Supplied in packs of 10 pads. Discounted prices given for batches of 50.
