Cleaning Brushes and Other: Scotch-Brite™ Clean and Strip XT Bonded Cleaning Brush

Our Scotch-Brite™ Clean and Strip XT Bonded Cleaning Brush aggressively cleans and deburrs a variety of hard metals. It’s a heavy-duty abrasive designed to clean substrates and rid them of rust, corrosion, light mill scale and other surface contaminants from metal sheet or coil.

  • Made with sharp cutting silicon carbide mineral for a fast, sustained cut
  • Steel core helps minimize brush's tendency to yield or deflect on the workpiece
  • Open web resists loading, contributing to longer abrasive service life
  • Open web responds to surface irregularities without altering geometry of the part
  • Good for edge work

Heavy-Duty Cleaning

Among our Scotch-Brite™ Flap and Cleaning Brushes, the Scotch-Brite™ Clean and Strip XT Bonded Cleaning Brush is one of the most aggressive brushes. It is the strongest iteration of our Scotch-Brite™ Clean and Strip Bonded Cleaning Brush, because it is only available in the hardest density. XT has a more durable open web than regular cleaning brushes, because it incorporates more resin and mineral into the web. 

Combining extra coarse (XCS) silicon carbide mineral with a dense web makes this Scotch-Brite™ brush especially tough and strong. When brought in contact with the workpiece, this brush will not yield or cut as softly as other brushes. As operators know, many variables impact which abrasive should be used. For some applications, a lighter, softer abrasive is the best choice. For applications that require heavy-duty cleaning, our Scotch-Brite™ Clean and Strip XT Bonded Cleaning Brush is a good choice. 

Durable Construction of Scotch-Brite™ Cleaning Brushes

We engineer Scotch-Brite™ cleaning brushes by attaching circular sections of non-woven material to a cylindrical core. Typical applications for cleaning brushes include coil cleaning prior to coating, deburring, reclaiming sheet and coil and scale / oxide removal. The brush has an arbor hole to accommodate a shaft and may be secured in place with a flange and key. Our Scotch-Brite™ Clean and Strip XT Bonded Cleaning Brush, especially, is good for edge work because of its durability. It will not fray or splinter when faced with edges. The steel core on the brush keeps it sturdy and adds a level of durability to the brush when it's run on finishing equipment. Operators may choose to add a lubricant or coolant when cleaning, because it helps wash away swarf and reduce loading, which extends the brush's service life. 

The Many Benefits of Open Web Abrasives

Nonwoven technology makes our Scotch-Brite™ industrial abrasives unique. A combination of fiber strands, resin, and abrasive mineral forms a thick, open web. The spring-like nature of the fibers responds to contours and effectively removes unwanted burrs, soils and contaminants while maintaining the geometry of the workpiece, which in turn reduces rework and boosts productivity. Gaps in the web allow swarf to escape, so debris does not clog the mineral. 

Fibers in the web continually break down with use to reveal fresh mineral for exceptional consistency, superior cut performance, and extremely long service life. Scotch-Brite™ products not only enhance productivity, but also increase operator safety by reducing the need for cleaning chemicals and pastes, and replacing wire brushes that can break off and cause injury. From aesthetic finishing to weld blending, deburring, and more, Scotch-Brite™ abrasives work fast and deliver consistent results, part after part.
