Seamless Shur-Brite finishing wheels from Superior Abrasives LLC (Vandalia, OH) produce a satin finish without the harsh and visible transition lines often caused by traditional flap brushes. Applications include gear and thread cleaning, micro-deburring, stainless steel cleaning and grain finishing, and reducing or blending fine scratch patterns.
Made without a scrim reinforcement, the wheel’s finishing materials are lighter and more pliable than other nonwoven materials. Aluminum oxide grains provide long life and withstand high pressure. Silicon carbide grains provide a fast cut and uniform finish with a sharper, finer cut. Slower speeds of 3,000 to 4,000 rpm provide better results.
Available with ¼-inch shank, 2-inch width, and 3- or 4-inch diameter in medium, fine, and very fine grades, the wheels are suitable for wet and dry applications and resist loading. Also available in flap and duplex brushes for angle grinders using an integrated, tool-less threaded hub for fast changeover.
