Shaft-mounted bristle gives competition the brush-off


20 December 2010

Component cleaning, light deburring and weld discoloration removal are now even quicker and easier thanks to a new innovation from diversified technology company 3M.

3M Scotch-Brite Radial Bristle Brushes are now available mounted on a 6mm shaft, meaning that for the first time this type of product is ready to use straight from the box.

The shaft-mounted version is also more durable and cost-efficient as no additional mandrels are required.

3M Scotch-Brite Shaft Mounted Radial Bristle Brushes are available in 50mm and 76mm diameters, in P80, P120 and P220 grades.

Bristle abrasive technology consists of a unique formation containing 3M Cubitron abrasive grain, with individual moulded discs grouped together to form a brush. This system offers significant performance advantages when working with irregular surfaces or detailed features, alongside increased safety when compared with wire brushes.

Sam Parker of 3M’s Abrasive Systems Division explained: “Bristle abrasive products have become firmly established as a rapid, simple and convenient way to clean and remove discoloration from a variety of substrates, including metal, wood, plastics and composite materials. Now, the process is further quickened and simplified as the product is pre-mounted and can be fitted to the tool in a matter of a few seconds.”
