Lincoln Electric Adds Welding Brushes to Its Welding Gear Product Line

Lincoln Electric, Automation Division

Welding Brushes from Lincoln ElectricLincoln Electric now offers a line of high-quality Welding Brushes in the new Radius™ Welding Tools product group, a part of the company’s comprehensive line of Welding Gear. The expanding Welding Gear line offers welding operators, schools or employers a single source for all of their apparel and tool needs.

Featured in the 2013 Welding Gear Catalog, these brushes are intended for proper cleaning of the base material before welding starts and also between each pass. The line, organized by base material, includes the following models:

  • Stainless Steel – A small, toothbrush-style, 3 x 7 row wire brush for light cleaning in confined or hard-to-reach areas; a 2 x 9 row brush with a slightly curved handle for general light cleaning; and a 3 x 19 row general-purpose brush for long life and efficient surface cleaning. All three brushes feature steel-wire bristles.
  • Aluminum – A compact, toothbrush-style, 3 x 7 row brush for light cleaning in confined or hard-to-reach areas; and a 2 x 9 row brush with a slightly curved handle for general light cleaning. Both brushes feature brass-wire bristles designed to gently remove the oxide layer that can form on aluminum.
  • Carbon Steel – A 3 x 19 row brush for efficient general cleaning; and a 4 x 16 row brush with a curved handle, designed to make fast work of rust, mill scale and paint. Both feature tempered-steel bristles.
“To avoid cross-contamination that could ruin your work, it’s important to have different brushes for different materials,” says Jamy Bulan, Product Manager, Retail and Accessory Products at Lincoln Electric. “Your welds will have a better appearance and fewer defects with proper cleaning of the base material.”
 
These high-quality Radius™ brushes also are available in a three-pack. This combination pack features three toothbrush-style brushes: one with brass bristles for aluminum, one with stainless bristles for stainless steel and a nylon-bristle brush for general cleaning on carbon steel. This easy-to-stow set is ideal for small projects.
 
Radius Welding Brushes, as well as other Lincoln Electric Welding Gear, are available at a distributor near you.
 
“Lincoln Electric is working hard to expand our line of Welding Gear to include not only these brushes but all of the helmets, apparel and tools a welding customer at any level will need,” Bulan says.
