Osborn Introduces New Crimped Rectangular Filament

The new filament for the ATB line provides maximum aggression, flexibility, and conformability.

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Osborn, the world’s leading supplier of industrial brushes, has announced its new crimped rectangular filament in silicon carbide and aluminum oxide on a complete line of ATB brushes.

The new filament offers an ideal blend of aggression, flexibility and conformability for a variety of finishing applications including automotive, off-road equipment, gear deburring, engine housing, aerospace, turbine blades, and many others.

“The new crimped rectangular filament is more flexible and runs cooler than a regular rectangular filament and it allows for faster feed than an unbridled round crimped filament,” said Mike Akuszewski, field application engineer at Osborn. “This new filament structure is ideal for finishing applications on tougher materials.”

Osborn offers crimped rectangular filaments in both silicon carbide and aluminum oxide on ATB FastCut composite wheels, ATB Uni-Lok max density disc brushes, ATB Uni-Lok Turbo disc brushes, and ATB Uni-Lok quick-change disc brushes. Silicon carbide filament brushes are ideal for use on high-silica aluminum, ductile iron, and high-carbon steel. Aluminum oxide filament brushes are ideal for use on Inconel, Hastalloy, and Rene alloys.

Osborn is the world’s leading supplier of surface treatment solutions and high-quality finishing tools for hundreds of industrial and commercial applications such as metal finishing, honing, and surface polishing. For more information, visit osborn.com.
