Distressing brushes are supplied either with a fixed shaft and core or with a core and shaft hole to fit your machine. Working widths range from 50 to 1300 mm with a diameter of 160 mm or more (200 to 220 mm are the most widely used).


Rustic & Weathered Look

Cosma distressing brushes give wood and plastic surfaces texture, depth and the desired rustic and weathered look. These brushes are used on products such as wooden floors, wall coverings, furniture, decking, garden partitions and veneer. Steel wire brushes distress both the hard grain and the soft grain whereas nylon abrasive brushes sand away only the soft ‘late wood’ which lies alongside the hard ‘early wood’. Because nylon abrasive brushes leave behind a fully sanded surface, the demand for this type of brush continues to grow.


Re-trimming & Refurbishing

Nylon abrasive filament distressing brushes sometimes show an uneven wear pattern because one side of the brush processes more products. We can easily solve this for you by re-trimming the brush, considerably extending its service life. We can also refurbish fixed shaft brushes.
