Replacement Tips

Belt/strip brushes should be replaced regularly to optimize their performance and keep them in good working condition. How often you need to replace these brushes will depend on several factors, including the amount of use they get and the type of material they are made from. For example, brushes used for heavy-duty cleaning may need to be replaced more often than those used for light cleaning. Replacing worn-out brushes is critical as it ensures your safety and the safety of those around you.

Choosing the Right Abrasive Brush/Strip

Your application will determine the appropriate material for your brushes, and your brush material and abrasive machine/system can also impact the final quality of your parts. Using the wrong bristle material, or brush configuration can result in costly production errors or quality problems. Wet vs. dry abrasive machines can also impact the safety of your manufacturing facility, as well as the costs associated with production.
