 +====== Roloc Surface Conditioning Disc ======
 +Manufacturer:​ Scotch-Brite.
 +  * Non-woven disc aggressively deburrs and finishes on all metals. ((https://​www.3m.com/​3M/​en_US/​company-us/​all-3m-products/​~/​Scotch-Brite-Roloc-Surface-Conditioning-Disc/?​N=5002385+3293241340&​rt=rud))
 +  * Grades: coarse, medium, super fine and very fine. 
 +  * Combined with Roloc backing, allows for aggressive cutting.
 +  * Open-web construction resists loading and runs cool allowing for consistent finishes.
 +  * 3M™ Roloc™ attachment system offers quick and easy disc change-out for multi-step finishing processes.
 +  * Silicon carbide abrasive:
 +    * Silicon carbide is a synthetic mineral that is very sharp and commonly used for low-pressure applications such as paint prep and finishing. \\ While silicon carbide breaks down faster than aluminum oxide, it produces a finer finish.
 +  * Aluminum oxide abrasive:
 +    * Aluminum oxide is a hard, blocky mineral that provides high cut-rate and long life.
 +  * Mandrel and rubber backing pad are a separate item to the disks.
 +  * Used for deburring, blending, finishing, grinding and surface prep. 
 +  * Also can be used to deepen the valve clearance eyebrows in the heads (if required). ((AussieGazza of the XLFORUM http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​t=692835&​page=3))
