Finishing Products For Welding Applications
The Welders Choice line from Osborn includes stringer bead brushes, scratch brushes and cup brushes that are ideal for surface prep and removing burrs as well as other surface work.
Osborn (Cleveland, OH) offers a complete line for finishing products designed for welding applications. Designed specifically for the professional welder, products in Osborn’s Welders Choice™ catalog include:
- Stringer bead brushes, including the refined TY™ encapsulated stringer bead brushes that were developed in conjunction with leading offshore pipeline companies, to quickly and effectively clean J-weld joints. The narrow-face, aggressive knots used to make the TY encapsulated wheel brushes have been refined over the years with improved elastomers and are perfect for cleaning stringer bead welds.
- Scratch brushes made with kiln-dried hardwood for maximum tuft retention, even for severe applications. These use high quality wire fill in these brushes that provides superior cutting ability and extreme fatigue resistance.
- Cup brushes, including the TY™ encapsulated cup brushes which are constructed for better balance for longer product life. The brushes easily mount on portable and electric tools and finishing machines and are ideal for surface prep and removing burrs as well as other surface work.
The company also offers abrasive products for cutting, finishing and grinding. The abrasive products are all designed for superior performance and long life, using durable materials. “We worked with welders to define their product needs, then created the Welders Choice catalog that brings all of those products into one place,” said Jeff Naymik, the marketing manager at Osborn.
