3M™ Brushlon™ Abrasives: Choosing the Right One for You
3M™ Brushlon™ abrasives come in many material variations and converted forms; so, how do you know which one is right for you? It’s a combination of three variables: bristle type, mineral and form.
3M™ Brushlon Roll 320BX can be cut and shaped to meet project dimensions, and its short-trim nylon fibers provide gentle, firm support in a flexible form. It’s great for applications including:
320BX does not contain and abrasive mineral, and – while this may seem surprising for an abrasive product – the omission was intentional. The absence of mineral leverages the abrasive’s ability to respond to parts without gouging or marring.

- Vibratory bowl feeder lining
- Vibratory conveying
- Carrier roll covering
- OEM applications
Individually Anchored Bristles for Greater Durability
Abrasive bristles on 3M™ Brushlon 320BX counteract common pitfalls of tufted brushes. In tufted brushes, multiple bristles are attached with only a single fiber. If it breaks, multiple bristles are lost, which causes gapping and limits use. But, with non-tufted Brushlon materials, each bristle is individually anchored to a tough resin-fibre backing, minimizing bristle loss and maximizing brush life.
Versatility to Meet Any Challenge
Backed by more than 30 years of experience in brush development, the 3M™ Brushlon line offers you multiple options: nylon or polypropylene bristles, wide range of fiber diameters, many brush sizes and configurations and minerals. The durable resin backing also enables the abrasive to be run wet or dry.
Regardless of the 3M™ Brushlon product that’s chosen, industrial professionals can anticipate a uniform benefit: great performance part after part.
