A new addition to Norton|Saint-Gobain’s Blaze line, these nylon abrasive brushes are precision-engineered with the highest quality ceramic grains for easy integration into today’s automated machinery, CNC machining centers, transfer lines, robotic cells and other highly specialized machinery, as well as portable power hand tools. Norton Blaze brushes are ideal for both internal and external part finishing for applications such as aerospace, automotive, medical and other demanding industries.
Norton Blaze nylon abrasive brushes feature a self-sharpening ceramic alumina abrasive with extreme point endurance and improved micro-fracturing properties that provides up to a 30 percent faster cut. As the grain is exposed, the cutting points are increased and cut equally when pressure is applied to the side or the tip of the filament. Even distribution of the grain throughout the filament ensures consistent cutting and finishing throughout the life of the brush, making these brushes ideal for automated applications.
The brushes are designed with strong, ceramic-grain-infused filaments that are heat and stress resistant, offering up to 20 percent longer brush life and superior conformability to irregularly shaped surfaces. The filaments easily bend at various angles to fit contours for a more uniform surface for optimal performance on a variety of complex part shapes, without requiring ultra-precise programming and fixturing typically required with other deburring and finishing tools.
The Norton Blaze brush line is available in a number of configurations with sizes ranging from ¼” – 14” brush diameter depending on brush type.
Radial Wheel brushes are ideal for final finishing and sharpening precision parts during production. They can be used for edge radiusing and cleaning, finishing and polishing surfaces including ferrous and nonferrous materials, and powdered and soft metals such as aluminum and brass.
Narrow Face Wheel brushes feature a small profile, which makes them ideal for cleaning, polishing and deburring recessed areas such as small openings, slots and machined grooves.
Disc brushes work best for deburring and edge radiusing. They can be used for removing rust, scale and other surface contaminants, scrubbing and cleaning, surface prep, blending tool marks, applying decorative finishes/textures, and finishing and polishing.
Stem-Mounted End brushes include a stem that allows for mounting in a collet or tool holder for CNC machine or robotic use. They can be used with portable or power tools for deburring slots, small recessed areas and internal part features.
Twisted brushes feature a solid steel shank for use in CNC machine tools, drill presses and manual machine tools for deburring, cleaning, finishing and polishing inside any small diameter holes.
