Equipment and supplies used to refine or roughen a surface to meet surface finish requirements or to clean, strengthen or prepare the surface for additional processing.
Abrasive brushes have abrasive filament brush fills, which provide a more aggressive action compared to synthetic or wire filaments.
Back-up pads and platens are used hold and/or support paper, fiber or film backed abrasive discs, sheets or belts
Buffs and buffing wheels are used to hold finishing compounds and polish parts made of metal, plastic, ceramic, glass, wood, stone, silicon, or optical materials.
Burnishing tools are used to impart a gloss or fine surface finish, often in processes that involve the cold working of metal surfaces.
Deburring and chamfering tools are used to clean edges after machining. Deburring tools remove flashing and other unwanted edge properties caused by cutting or machining. A chamfer is a beveled edge at the intersection of two surfaces so the surfaces are typically at 45 degrees.
Hand brushes have bristles mounted in a wood, plastic or metal handle or stem such as scratch, welders, and twisted-in-wire and plater brushes.
Industrial brushes are used for metal deburring; removing rust, paint or coatings; welding or surface preparation; painting and coat application; thread cleaning; and surface finishing on a variety of materials.
Metal files, rasps and rifflers have serrated cutting surfaces for rounding off sharp edges, removing burrs, blending parting lines, cleaning, surface preparation, and other part surface finishing applications.
Paint brushes and applicators are used to apply paints, adhesives, sealants, oils, cleaners, acids or etchants, mortar or cement treatments, and other coating products to surfaces.
Power brushes and rotary brushes are designed to be mounted to an electrical or pneumatic tool or machine.
Specialty brushes use specialized or proprietary technologies, or feature brush designs for specific applications or industries.
Wire brushes are tools primarily used for abrasive purposes, such as cleaning rust and removing paint.
