Weiler Corporation’s controlled-flare end brushes feature a trimmed crimped wire fill for more effective brushing action and enhanced durability when cleaning fillet welds, corners, bevels, channels and slots.
According to the company, the end brush’s design virtually eliminates the rapid filament fatigue and wire breakage that occurs when using standard end brushes on high-speed air tools to clean and prep hard-to-reach areas. Its trim not only removes the most breakage-prone portions of the wire fill, but it also results in a shape that is more easily maneuvered into corners and against fillets. The brush’s shape places more sharp wire tips into these hard-to-reach areas, where they can clean and condition more rapidly and thoroughly, Weiler says.
The controlled-flare end brushes are available in steel wire for use on carbon steel and other materials; and stainless steel wire for use on corrosion-resistant alloys, aluminum and other non-ferrous metals. They are available in diameters from 1/2" to 1" and in 0.0104, 0.014 and 0.020 wire sizes.
