CrossFlex brushes are designed to provide a long operational life, lowering the total cost of use compared to other brush options. They are available in a variety of grits — 120, 180, 240 and 320 grit — to achieve the desired finish, along with offering increased brush-to-part contact to remove even the heaviest burrs compared to nylon tube brushes. Flexible nylon stems distribute pressure evenly, self-centering within the part to create an accurate hone. Available collet-ready brushes deliver a true center rotation and exceptional brush balance for both hand-held and automated applications. CrossFlex brushes also feature a consistent cross hatch pattern to ensure proper seating of piston rings and to retain oil for lubrication in combustion cylinders.
