Xebec Deburring Technologies’ “blue” surface deburring brush is designed to deburr in tough materials, such as titanium castings for the aerospace and defense industries. The brush features thick and stiff ceramic fiber bristles for increased aggressiveness. Its self-sharpening capability provides a continuous cutting edge and consistent grinding performance. Each bristle contains 1,000 alumina fiber filaments with no fillers or binders, providing end-to-end abrasive material in each bristle.

The company’s surface brush line consists of four colors that denote the level of cutting aggressiveness. Pink is the softest and most flexible and is well-suited for intricate parts and softer materials. Red is a little stiffer and more aggressive, and is well-suited for materials less than 45 Rc. White is still more rigid and aggressive, and can handle larger burrs. Blue can handle burrs ranging to 1 mm in tough materials.

The pink brush is available only in a 15-mm size, while the other three colors are available in 6-, 15-, 25-, 40-, 60- and 100-mm diameters. A corresponding sleeve in each size serves as a holder, and a floating holder is available for brushes ranging to 40 mm.

    Surface finish types for commercially supplied stainless steel sheet are detailed in various standards. ASTM A480-12 and EN10088-2 are two; BS 1449-2 (1983) is still available, although no longer active. These standards are very similar in that they define eight grades of surface finish for stainless steel. Grade 7 is “buff polished,” while the highest polish—the so-called mirror polish—is designated Grade 8
