MBX Bristle Blaster

Professional Surface Preparation Technology

The rotating bristles are dynamically tuned to the power tool resulting in an impact and immediate retraction of the bristle tips from the working surface.

The bristle tips are designed to strike the corroded surface with a kinetic energy that is equivalent to grit blast media, thereby generating a texture and visual cleanliness that mimics the grit blasting process. 

A light and ergonomic design, with minimal vibration allows continuous operation with minimal fatigue.

  • Removal of corrosion, mill scale and defunct protective coatings with a surface cleanliness similar to SA 2.5 (NACE No.2/SSPC-SP10 to SA 3 (NACE No.1/SSPC-SP5)
    Restores surface to DIN EN ISO 8501-1 / SA 2.5 to SA 3.

  • Surface texture / Anchor profile up to 120µm (Rz) / 4.72 mils
    Roughness capability from 40- 120µm Rz / 1.57 - 4.72mils . Also in areas where blasting is not permitted. Applies for non-ferrous metals as well.

  • Improved integrity of treated surfaces
    Generates compressive residual stress along treated surfaces providing crack growth resistance, improved fatigue life, and improved corrosion resistance.

  • Negligible heat generation
    Surfaces free of thermal damage and/or heat marking.

  • Eco Friendly
    GREEN surface preparation, does not use/produce hazardous materials. Low energy requirements.
