Grier-Brite

Grier-Brite

 

GRIER-BRITE is constructed of pressed, non-woven, tough, abrasive nylon fibers, used primarily in finishing and surface preparation along with light deburring. GRIER-BRITE is designed to provide long-life and being typically non-loading, it will not disrupt critical tolerances. A wide variety of applications can be addressed with 6 formulas and many different shapes and sizes.

Other Considerations

  1. Softer wheels produce a rougher finish
  2. Lower SFPM produce a rougher finish
  3. Deburring requires high SFPM (6,000)
  4. Decorative finishes require lower SFPM (900)
  5. Blending requires high SFPM (7,000)
  6. S/C provides a finer finish (higher luster) than A/O
  7. Polishing requires light pressure
