Aplications

The criteria for choosing the most suitable brush for each application are the following:

  • The work to be carried out.
  • The type of surface which is to be brushed.
  • The machine with which the work will be done and its speed

To choose the type of material, wire or abrasive nylon:

  • The material of the surface to be brushed.
  • The type of finish desired
  • The machine with which the work will be done and its speed

Furthermore, other characteristics must be taken into account:

  • Brushing is more efficient at greater brush diameters. (Do not exceed 175 mm. in diameter in portable machines of 6000 r.p.m. maximum.)
  • Shorter trim lengths result in more aggressive brushing and longer trim lengths offer better flexibility for irregular surfaces.

Brushes identification by colours

To help to identify the type of wire of our brushes, we identify the steel wire brushes with red colour plates; and the stainless steel wire brushes with blue colour plates.
