   Belt Brush       Belt brushes have bristles or filaments mounted to the exterior of the belt, which can be a v-belt, toothed belt, flat belt, or other type of belt. Brush belts are typically mounted to two or more rollers, such as a contact wheel and idler wheel. 
   Block / Pad       Abrasive pads or blocks consist of abrasive grain adhered onto the surface of a cloth, film, paper, non-woven, or other backing usually with a die cut square or rectangular shape. Hand pads may have a round or contoured shape.  Hand pads, blocks, or sticks usually are thicker than an abrasive sheet and often have an integral loop or handle to help the user hold and use the pad. Block brushes consist of a brush core, handle or backing with a series of holes with hold tufts. Tufts are bunches of bristles, filaments or wires (brush fill). The size and spacing of the tufts can be varied depending on the specific application. The space between the tufts provides clearance for the removal of dirt, scale, rust or other debris removed by the tufts. Paint pads are absorbent pads that can be used to create texture patterns, or fill paint or coatings in hard to reach areas. 
   Cup Brush       Cup brushes have bristles that are oriented perpendicular to the mounting plate, forming a cup-shaped brush. They are typically used with an angle grinder to clean flat surfaces. 
   Cylinder / Roller Brush       Roller brushes have bristles or filaments extending radially from the outer diameter of a central cylindrical hub. Examples include paddle wheel cylinder, spiral wound-core mounted, spiral wound-radial coil/wound strip. Coating rollers or paint rollers consist of cylindrical tubes covered with fiber, filament, and sponge or foam material. Coating rollers are rotated over a surface transferring paint, primer, or other coatings to the substrate. 
   Disc Brush       Disc brushes have bristles mounted to a cylindrical plate. The full plate of bristles allows you to cover large surface areas where cleaning, deburring, or other brushing actions are required. 
   End Brush       End brushes or stem brushes have bristles that are mounted parallel to the bore or shaft, and extend off the end of the brush. 
   Flap Brush       Flap wheels consist of a series of coated abrasive flaps radiating out from the center of the wheel where the flaps are bonded together. Flap wheels continue to provide new abrasive surfaces as the flaps wear away.  
   Flow-through       Brushes have an integral passage to allow cleaning agents, solvents, lubricants, oils, paints, liquid adhesives, sealants or coatings, or other fluids to pass through to the workpiece or substrate. 
   Micro / Miniature Brush (Instrument)       Instrument, part or miniature and micro brushes are used for precision or fine cleaning, and brushing applications. 
   Power / Rotary Brush (Wheel, Roller)       Power or rotary brushes are designed to be mounted to an electrical or pneumatic component, and are rotated at high speeds. 
   Scratch / Toothbrush       Scratch brushes are a common type of wire brush that are used to scrape surfaces or remove waste products, scale, or corrosion. Toothbrush style brushes have a long handle with short brush length and short trim length. 
   Scrub / Washout       Scrub or washout brushes have short stiff bristles and are used for heavy cleaning applications. 
   Strip Brush       Strip brushes are narrow, elongated brushes that are used universally for many different applications. Strip brushes are used to fabricate brush seals or weatherstripping. Strip brushes are mounted onto roller-shaped cores to form cylindrical roller brushes. Conductive strip brushes are also mounted over a conveyor belt to continuously remove debris and dissipate static charges. 
   Spiral / Twisted-in-Wire (Tube)       Twisted-in-wire brushes have bristles mounted to and extending radially from a center twisted wire.  According to Gordon Brush Mfg. Co., Inc., "A twisted in wire brush is known by many names, such as spiral, tube, flue, bottle, pipe, boiler or power brushes."

   Abrasive Grain Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum Oxide       Aluminum oxide is the most common industrial mineral in use today. Fused aluminum oxide is produced synthetically by melting bauxite and an additive in an arc furnace to form a fused aluminum oxide ingots, which are later crushed and sized. Fused aluminum oxide is also produced synthetically by chemically purifying the various types of fused aluminum oxides. Oxides are distinguished by the levels of chemical impurities remaining in the fused mineral. Titanium and chromium oxides are typical additives. Other techniques to make industrial abrasives start with treating bauxite ore with a sol gel process to create alumina. The alumina is sintered to produce with an extremely fine crystalline structure typical of the sol gel or seeded gel products available by Saint Gobain Abrasives. Fused aluminum oxide is available in several variations depending on composition and processing such as white (high purity), brown or regular (titanium oxide modified), and pink (chromium oxide additions). Titanium oxide additions can toughen the abrasive and enable heat treating process, which changes brown aluminum oxide to a blue colored grain as TiO2 precipitates form. Aluminum oxide abrasives are also produced with chemical precursors and precipitation, calcination, and/or sintering processes. Calcined or platelet alumina or aluminum oxide used in fine grit or polishing applications. Sol-gel aluminum oxide is produced in using chemical ceramic technology, but this abrasive has very high performance and is usually referred to as ceramic abrasive grain to distinguish the grain from lower performing fused aluminum oxide.  Aluminum oxide occurs naturally in the form of the mineral corundum, but the mineral is not used as a commercial abrasive except as a component of emery. 
   Ceramic       Ceramic abrasives typically consist of aluminum oxide with or without additional modifiers that are produced by using a sol-gel and sintering process. The ceramic processing route results in a hard, dense abrasive with an extremely-fine crystal size and outstanding grinding performance on a variety of workpiece materials. 
   Emery / Crocus       Emery is a naturally occurring mineral abrasive consisting of aluminum oxide particles in a matrix of iron oxide and other impurities. Crocus is an iron, oxide-based abrasive used for finishing applications. 
   Garnet       Garnet is a natural silicate mineral, consisting of a combination of almandite and pyrope, which is mined from igneous mineral deposits or in concentrated pockets of alluvial deposits of old riverbeds.  Garnet has the general chemical formula of: Fe2O3Al2 (SiO4)3. The iron and aluminum are partially replaceable by calcium, magnesium, and manganese. 
   Silicon Carbide       Silicon carbide (SiC) is a synthetic abrasive that is harder than aluminum oxide, but more friable than fused aluminum oxide grains. Silicon carbide is typically applied to nonferrous applications including brass, aluminum, and titanium. The high solubility of carbon and silicon in iron would result in a reaction of silicon carbide with the iron base alloy and poor grinding performance. Levels and types of impurities distinguish the green and black forms of silicon carbide. They are sharp and easily fractured abrasive grains for abrading other non-metals such as the stone, glass, wood, and leather. SiC, like diamond, is susceptible to oxidation at higher temperatures. 
   Superabrasive - CBN       Cubic boron nitride (CBN) consists of superabrasive grains with hardness second to diamond, and a cubic crystal structure. CBN provides super grinding performance on carbon and alloy steel. CBN is produced synthetically in a high-temperature, high-pressure process anvil press--a process similar to synthetic diamond production. 
   Superabrasive - Diamond       Synthetic diamond is produced in a high-temperature, high-pressure process anvil press. Diamond is superabrasive grain with the highest known hardness and a cubic crystal structure. Diamond is used for grinding nonferrous metals, ceramics, glass, stone, and building materials. Diamond is not useful in grinding steel or ferrous alloys because carbon or diamond readily dissolves or reacts with iron. Diamond pastes are useful in ferrous polishing or lapping applications where heat and reactivity are not a factor. Diamond is susceptible to oxidation at higher temperatures 
   Zirconia (e.g., Norzon®)       Alumina-zirconia abrasive grain consists of a fused alloy of aluminum oxide and zirconium oxide. NorZon® is a widely used variation proprietary to Norton Company. It consists of a fused and quenched eutectic mixture of aluminum oxide and zirconium oxide. The result is a fine structure and higher hardness, which contributes to improved grinding performance on stainless steel, titanium, and other exotic metals.
