Choose the right wire for an optimal brush effect

Bekaert’s low-carbon Bessemer wire is the ideal component for small and efficient polishing brushes. It features consistent mechanical properties and high fatigue life. We can produce diameters as thin as 20 μm. The filaments are trimmed and dynamically balanced to a smooth rotation at high speeds. The crimped structure is ideal for the even distribution of polishing pastes.

For brushes that require harder, stronger wire, Bekaert also offers hard-drawn wires and oil-tempered wires. Match the surface finish of your wires to your brush application so your customers can achieve a better brush effect. Our surface finishes include zinc and brass for hard drawn wires, and dry coatings for oil tempered wires.

Bekaert brush wires are available in a wide range of tempers, tensile strengths and steel alloys. Whether your brushes need to clean, polish or deburr, we are able to adapt the diameters, hardness or surface finish to provide wire that contributes to the perfect brushing effect.
