Scratch Erasers are fine abrasive discs used to "magically" remove scratches and marks. Also known as the 3M™ Scotch-Brite EXL Unitized abrasives, these burnish your metal to get rid of scratches and surface imperfections. When used in succession from coarse to very fine, these surface conditioning discs leave an amazing brushed, satin or pre-polished finish.
The 3M™ Scotch-Brite EXL Unitised, also known as the Scratch Eraser, is one of Anie’s favourite abrasives. It doesn't grind away or remove your material; instead, it burnishes and spreads it along the surface.
This fine grade scratch eraser disc is great for "wiping off" and blending in scratches and scuff marks on precious metals, and achieving smooth finishes on raw castings or metal clay.
The scratch eraser doesn't remove your precious material, instead it burnishes and spreads it along the surface - a bit like spreading frosting on a cake.
Use the coarse grades to quickly take down heavy scratches and the finer grades for light scratches and achieving pre-polished, satin finishes.
Its web-like structure blends the metal and remove scratches from both precious and non-precious metals. In just 2 steps you can clean up a raw casting and then finish with our felt disc and compound to a high mirror polish. Great for cleaning up after soldering. The disc is made of abrasive impregnated in a non-woven web, which resists loading and has an extremely long life. It also resists smearing and minimises heat buildup on the work piece.
The Scratch Erasers are available in:
- Very Fine
You also need to choose if you want:
- 3" disc, or
- 4" disc
- Mounted on backpad, or
