The cutting action of the filaments of abrasive nylon brushes are unique compared to traditional metal filaments that are designed to cut on the filament tips. Abrasive grains encapsulated in the nylon are exposed on all surfaces of the brush filament. Abrasive action occurs on both the tip of the nylon brush filaments as well as the nylon filament sides. Abrasive Nylon filaments are produced in a variety of filament diameters, abrasive grain types, abrasive grain sizes and abrasive loading. As the abrasive grain size increases so does the nylon filament diameter. Brushes made from abrasive nylon should not be run faster than 3500 SFPM to avoid overheating and material transference. Abrasive nylon brushes are ideal for light deburring.
