SHUR-BRITE™ Nonwoven Abrasives

Understand the basic characteristics of nonwovens

Nonwoven Features

SHUR-BRITE™ offers the full range of nonwoven products for solving pre- or post-process applications. From shaping and deburring to cleaning and polishing, the versatile structure of SHUR-BRITE™ Nonwoven Abrasives provides flexibility, conformability, strength and consistency. Complimentary to SHUR-KUT™ Coated Abrasives, SHUR-BRITE™ Nonwoven Abrasives are better able to navigate workpieces without marring or gouging and can enable any final finish requirements.

Nonwoven Characteristics

All SHUR-BRITE™ Nonwoven Abrasives consistently feature three components – nylon fibers, abrasive grains and resin. Each component is equally important and cannot perform a proper task without the others. The key to SHUR-BRITE™ Nonwoven Abrasives are the nylon fibers, which give products their dimensional, open structure, and control the conformability.

The synthetic fiber structure, or fleece, is impregnated with abrasive grains and resins. The grains attach to the fiber, and the resin bonds these components together, leaving open areas throughout the nonwoven structure. Synthetic nylon fibers are the cushioning foundation which carry the grain media providing the cutting action.
