3M™ Paint and Rust Stripper removes rust, scale and old paint from metal with exceptional ease. This slightly flexible disc uniformly grinds or sands over contoured or curved surfaces for greater consistency. It attaches easily to a standard electric drill - the drill does much of the work, saving effort and boosting efficiency. Paint and rust strippers come in both heavy and light duty options.

Strip Away Old Paint and Corrosion with Ease
3M™ Paint and Rust Stripper works quicker, lasts longer and cuts faster than conventional sandpaper to strip away corrosion, scale and old finishes. Made from durable, non-woven synthetic material, our rust and paint remover makes a tough job faster and easier – it cleans away surface corrosion to reveal the surface below. Silicon carbide abrasives fracture easily to expose sharp edges for aggressive grinding that speeds removal of rust and scale. The paint and rust stripper may be used on fiberboard, plastics, wood, clear coat, fiberglass, filler, metal, paint, and putty.

Simply attach this disc to an electric drill with a 1/4-inch mandrel and apply directly to corrosion or old paint for fast removal. The power of the electric drill saves a lot of time and effort compared with sanding by hand.
