Abrasive micro spiral brushes are miniature brushes that can be used for a multitude of applications. Popular uses include ultra-fine wet or dry deburring and finishing, edge blending, and cleaning.
These long wearing, acid resistant, single spiral, abrasive micro brushes are made with Nylon fill material impregnated with an abrasive mineral such as silicate, using 500 grit aluminum oxide or 600 grit aluminum oxide. 500 grit aluminum oxide is a medium density abrasive whereas 600 grit is much finer. Gritted aluminum oxide is a very popular abrasive choice being both fracture-resistant and strong, with a Mohs value of 7. The 0.008" silicate grit mineral filler adds hardness to the Nylon filaments. The sides of the Nylon filaments act as flexible files to reach surfaces where wire bristles might not be as effective.
The wire stems of the spiral brushes are made of either stainless steel or galvanized steel. Stainless steel has superior resistance to heat, rust, salt water and corrosion and is excellent for both wet and dry applications. Galvanized steel is coated with a thin layer of zinc that helps guard against corrosion and unwanted damage through chlorine exposure.
Brush lengths range from 5/8" to 1-1/2", with overall lengths of 3" or 5", and brush diameters with a range from 0.035" to 1.015". When selecting the correct size of brush for an application, it is essential to know the hole diameter into which the brush will be inserted.
