Removal of mill scale or corrosion from metals such as: cold rolled steel, stainless steel. Aluminum, brass and copper. Used on straight shaft die grinders where hand tools are used to position the tool on to the part and bench motors or backstands where the operator brings the part to the brush for cleaning. Most common speeds are 1750 rpm to 3600 rpm.

Product or process replaced

Wire brushes, nylon brushes, non-woven wheels and hand pads. Typical brush or wheel size is 3" or larger.

Advantages/Benefits to the Customer

Safe — Easy to use, No flying wire or fibers.

Conformable — Very conformable, require less manipulation for operator on parts.

Long Life — Patented 3MCubitronAbrasive Grain filled bristles apply a continuous fresh supply of mineral for consistent finish and long lasting quality throughout the life of product.

Non-Loading — Bristles do not load up from debris, rubber or plastic residues from metal surfaces, which does not cause cross contamination.

Cool Running — Resists heat build-up to help reduce potential for tempering or damaging the work surface. Doesn’t cause distortion to the part.

Tech Tips

Do not use excessive downward pressure on the tool — let the tool and bristle tips do the work.

Bristle discs perform the best when slightly angled (2-4 degrees).

Do not work bristle over sharp edges, when finishing edges on flat surface; position the tool so that the bristles run off the edge and not into the edge.

Do not dwell on a localized area to avoid excessive heat build up.

When using the type T-C bristle products, the bristles are directional.
