Brush Wire Products and Materials
Scratch Brush Wire
Drawn from hard wire and used in hand brushes for industrial applications. Ranging from .001″– 0.016″, this wire can be manufactured from most metals or alloys. Available in cut lengths or hanks.
Power Brush Wire
Able to survive the rigors of surface conditioning with its high fatigue life. Often used in manufacturing and excellent for removal of burrs and sharp edges, greatly increasing safety. A variety of sizes and materials are available to meet all surface conditioning needs. Available in cut lengths, hanks, spools or multi-stranded on spools.
Crimping increases column strength, improving brush performance and making it suitable for the toughest jobs. Available in nearly any metal or alloy; in cut lengths, hanks, spools, or multi-stranded on spools.
Straight and Cut Lengths
Available in a large range of sizes and alloys. Straightened and cut to a specific length or wire hanks.
Attaches brush wire filaments inside of brush channels, with a typical DIA of 0.028”– 0.125” Available in 304, 304HQ, 316 Stainless, and others upon request.
Large sets of wires grouped together before being put up on spools are offered in sizes from .001″ – .020″ and arrangements with as little as two and as many as 1,400 wires.
Used to attach bristles to a handle; available in many sizes and materials, on spools or coils.
Stainless and Nickel Alloys
Wire is available in nearly any variety of stainless steel, including 302, 304, 305, 316, Inconel®, etc.
Phosphor Bronze (Phos Bronze)
The alloy is often Alloy 510. Comprised of 95% copper and 5% tin, it’s highly conductive, has great fatigue life and low elastic modulus. Corrosion resistance and high tensile strength make this an excellent choice for wire brushes.
Wire is offered in Brass, specifically Alloy 260, which is comprised of 70% copper and 30% zinc. Corrosion-resistant, highly conductive, and used in the manufacture of all brass brushes.
Low Carbon Steel
0.15 carbon maximum and drawn solely from zinc-coated low carbon steel, this develops into a medium tensile, corrosive-resistant, high-quality product used in the manufacture of wire brushes.
High Carbon Steel
Carbon C1071 produces high tensile, high-quality, and high-fatigue brush material.
NiAg 745 is a commonly used white alloy made of 10% nickel, 65% copper and 25% zinc. Increased corrosion resistance and tensile strengths are indicative of the nickel content. Often used as brush fill and in staples.
