The Nylon Wire Brushes are highly durable & solid to enhance the efficiency of the tool. A nylon brush increases life span and reduces the polish timing. It makes hard-to-reach areas and bent or angled surfaces clean and smooth.
The abrasive grains present in the nylon brush filaments enable high quality deburring, blending, and surface finishing.
Abrasive Nylon Wire Brushes are ideal for a wide variety of materials finishing. In the full range of abrasive nylon grit sizes, Spiral Brushes offers Power brushes (wheel brushes, cup brushes, and end brushes), specially built Cylinder brushes and Strip brushes, and Centerless Grinder brushes. For various types of abrasive brushes, common applications include:
Nylon-filled industrial brushes are ideal for a variety of applications in both dry and wet conditions, from vigorous scrubbing to dusting. In most applications, brushes with Nylon fill give the following characteristics:
Nylon 6.6 is best suited for the driest industrial applications and medium grade as a regular duty application. Nylon 6.6 has a 9 percent higher rate of moisture absorption, and thus loses about half its stiffness when exposed to wet environments. Nylon 6.6 has minimal resistance to several chemical compounds as well.
For industrial and food applications, nylon 6.12 is a good efficiency grade with the following characteristics:
Conductive nylon can be mixed with other brush fill materials to provide static reduction along with other brushing functions at a more economical rate.
After machining, Abrasive nylon is a tough filament option for deburring, surface finishing, and edge blending or radiusing.
In general, Abrasive Nylon Brushes are classified for protection at higher (RPM) machinery than their recommended operating speeds. The maximum dry operating speeds required are approximately 3,500 surface feet per minute.
The brush tips seem to weaken or break when abrasive nylon filaments are worked at excessive speeds, causing the rushing of the molten nylon on the work surface.
The use of coolant or cutting oil for machining is recommended to control smearing in the higher velocity ranges. Owing to its greater ability to absorb moisture and lower resistance to different solvents, softening of the nylon filament due to exposure to coolants and oils will occur to a greater degree with Nylon 6-6 than with nylon 6-12.
