Synthetic fibres with abrasive materials

Abrasive filaments are another range of synthetic fibres. These are synthetic fibres that are offset with abrasive materials when they extruded.

The filaments that we use are primarily made from the PA 6, PA 6.10 and PA 6.12 base materials.

The abrasive medium is aluminium oxide (Al2O3), silicon carbide (SiC), ceramic grain or diamond.


It is very important for the numerous applications for tools with these plastic bristles to define the requirements exactly beforehand so that the ideal fibre can be used as a trim material:

  • Diameter of fibres
  • Type and size of grain
  • Fibre cross-section
  • Straight or curled fibres
  • Resistance to moisture
  • Resistance to chemicals


Main areas of use:

  • The treatment of surfaces and profiles, panels and belts
  • Treatment of irregular profiles
  • Cleaning and finishing treatments
  • Matting and satin finishing of surfaces
  • Production of technical and decorative surfaces
  • Deburring and rounding of punched parts
  • Removal of annealing colours, scale
  • Removal of drilling burrs
  • Refining of surface structures
  • Industrial areas: Aviation, automotive, electronics

Materials to be treated:

  • Ferrous and non-ferrous metals
  • Wood
  • Plastics
