Composite brushes

The standard type of composite brushes is suitable for tasks requiring aggressive brushing behaviour. The FLEX type is more flexible than the standard type due to its longer trim length on wheel brushes and the special arrangement of the filament on composite disc brushes, and it is particularly well suited to work on irregular surfaces.

For efficient use, numerous application parameters such as the processing time and feed rate must be coordinated with each other and the suitable brush must be selected. PFERD offers a wide range of products for the various applications. Our experienced sales representatives and technical advisers will be happy to help or visit you.


  • Long tool life and aggressive brushing effect due to a very high filament density.
  • Extremely smooth operation due to even distribution of the filament material.

Filament material - Plastic filament

Abrasive grains are embedded in flexible plastic filaments, which means that the filament works on the sides as well as at the tip.

  • Silicon carbide (SiC): Particularly well suited to deburring work and for improving surfaces.
  • Ceramic oxide grain (CO): Offers good toughness and excellent sharpness. For high stock removal values and aggressive brushing behaviour.
  • Round filament: for applications that place particular demands on the flexibility of the brush.
  • Rectangular filament (REC): for applications that place particular demands on the aggressiveness of the brush.
