Brushing Finish Services in China

Brushing finish is a surface finishing technique that utilizes abrasive brushes to create a uniform and consistent finish on metal surfaces. The process involves using abrasive brushes, which can be handheld or machine-operated, to remove any imperfections on the metal surface.

We provide professional brushing surface finish services for a variety of metal products. And we use high-quality wire brushes to create a textured surface on the metal, resulting in a unique and attractive finish. We work with various materials, including stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and copper, and can accommodate various sizes and shapes of metal parts.

Process of Brushing Finish

Brushing finishing is essential in achieving a high-quality surface finish on metal parts. It provides a consistent and uniform surface finish, enhancing the parts’ appearance and functionality.

brushing finish

The brushing process involves using abrasive brushes to remove any imperfections on the surface of the metal part. The metal part is first cleaned and prepped for brushing. The abrasive brush is selected based on the material of the metal and the desired finish.

The metal part is clamped down, and the brush is applied gently. The brush moves back and forth in, or circular motion, and the metal part is rotated to ensure uniformity. After brushing, the part is thoroughly cleaned and inspected.

Brushing Finish Metal Parts

Brushing finishing suits various metal parts, including sheet metal, aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium. The process is often suitable for manufacturing aerospace, automotive, and medical components.

Benefits of Brushing Finish for Metal Parts

Increased Durability

Brushing finishing creates a uniform and consistent finish that enhances the durability of metal parts. The process removes any burrs or sharp edges, which can weaken the part.

Enhanced Corrosion Resistance

Brushing finishing removes any surface contaminants, which can lead to corrosion. The process creates a smooth and clean surface, enhancing the corrosion resistance of the metal part.

Improved Appearance

Brushing finishing provides a sleek and sophisticated finish on metal parts. The surface is smooth and consistent, enhancing the aesthetic value of the part.

Reduced Friction

Brushing finishing reduces friction on metal parts, improving their overall performance.

Other surface finishes for CNC parts

anodizing parts

Anodizing is a process that can be suitable for CNC machined parts to enhance their performance, appearance and durability. It immerses the part in an electrolyte bath and applying an electric current which helps create a protective oxide film on its surface.

Black oxide parts

Black oxide is also referred to as blackening, and it adds a matte black finish to the metal, making the surface look darker in contrast to its original state. It makes the CNC parts appear more aesthetically pleasing while also protecting it from corrosion and rusting.

polishing parts

The goal of polishing is to enhance the natural beauty of the material so that it looks better than when it was first created.

Bead blasting parts

Bead blasting is a finishing process that uses small, round particles to force abrasive material onto any given surface. This process can improve the surface of CNC parts by smoothing and rounding out rough edges, removing burrs and other surface imperfections.

Electroless nickel plating

Electroless nickel plating

Electroless nickel plating is an incredibly useful process for adding a protective layer of metal to a variety of surfaces. It involves immersing the object in an electroless nickel solution, which then deposits nickel onto the surface.

Powder coating

Powder coating

Powder coating uses a fine powder that is electrostatically charged and then sprayed onto the desired product. It finally forms an incredibly durable finish that can withstand harsh weather conditions, corrosion, chemicals and abrasion far better than traditional wet paint.

brushing finish FAQs

A few different types of brushes can be suitable for brushing finish to achieve different textures and finishes. Here are some of the most common types:

Steel Wire Brushes: These are suitable for heavy-duty applications where a more aggressive brush is needed to remove rust, scale, or other surface imperfections.

Brass Wire Brushes: Brass wire brushes are a softer alternative to steel wire brushes and are effective in creating a smoother surface texture.

Nylon Brushes: Nylon brushes are suitable for more delicate or intricate surfaces, such as aluminum or other soft metals. They are also useful for cleaning and deburring plastics.

Bristle Brushes: Bristle brushes are made of natural or synthetic fibers and can create a softer, more nuanced texture. They can also apply finishes such as paint, stain, or varnish.

Flap Brushes: Flap brushes are abrasive brush that uses multiple layers of sandpaper-like material to grinding away surface imperfections.

Wheel Brushes: Wheel brushes are suitable in larger-scale applications, typically mounted on a machine, and are ideal for removing heavy coatings or rust from large surfaces.

Brushed and polished metal are two different finishes that can be suitable for metal surfaces.

Brushed metal has a textured appearance that has been achieved by brushing the surface of the metal with a wire brush, typically in a single direction.

This process creates a pattern of fine lines that can be seen on the surface of the metal. Brushed metal tends to have a duller appearance than polished metal and is less reflective.

Polished metal, on the other hand, has a smooth and shiny appearance that is achieved by polishing the surface of the metal with abrasive materials, such as buffing compounds or sandpaper.

This process creates a high-gloss finish that is very reflective and smooth to the touch. Polished metal tends to be more visually striking and eye-catching than brushed metal.

Overall, the main difference between brushed and polished metal is the surface texture and finish they create. Brushed metal is more subdued and textured, while polished metal has a shiny, reflective surface.
