Industrial professionals employ Power Brushes for edge blending, polishing and removing contamination from surfaces. These tools are operated by horsepower, which typically depends on the amount of pressure required for the application. Power brushes vary greatly in size, shape and brush filament fabrications. When selecting a Power Brush, experts recommend considering the surface and type of condition that will be treated, in addition to the filament filling and length. For example, longer filaments are considered to be only moderately abrasive on surfaces in comparison to some shorter fills suited for intensive processing. Furthermore, employing the largest diameter size brush allowed by the corresponding power tool will generally yield the most effective results. Materials used in the manufacturing of these tools include variations of ferrous and nonferrous wires, carbon steel, natural and synthetic (nylon) fibers.
