Fickert and Abrasive Round Brushes are specialized models of industrial brushes for the highly demanding surface treatment in the markets of natural stone, quartz agglomerate, ceramics, and the finishing of some metals, mainly for the automotive sector and the deburring of aluminium rims.
Fickert are modular brushes that are placed in blocks on large-scale polishing machines for the treatment of high-resistance materials, where only high-quality abrasive products meet the requirements and have the duration required by the sector.
There are two fikert segment sizes, 140 and 170, which, depending on the material of the abrasive filaments, achieve the required satin and/or matte finish.
The Abrasive Round Brushes, on the other hand, have diameters of 100, 120, 140 and 250 mm.
Fikert segments and abrasive round brushes are made of 6.12 nylon with silicon carbide, ceramic carbide or diamond to obtain the appropriate texturing on all types of materials.
Fikerts are brushes that only have this specialized application, but nevertheless, the abrasive round brushes are disc brushes with abrasive filaments.
On the other hand, when a softer textured effect is needed, the fickert are used, as the abrasive round brushes, to obtain products with surface marks, with grains from 36 to 3500.

Works on natural stone:
The fikert and abrasive round brushes segments work the natural stone, looking for two main finishes, depending on whether you want texture or shine on the stone:
- Aged or skin effect.
These industrial brushes work the surface of natural stone, mainly marble and granite, to texture it.
- Satin effect.
The fikert brushes used to find the satin of natural stone are those of rubber injected with abrasives, as they are less aggressive than the previous ones and a slightly less textured finish is obtained, which is what we are looking for with satin.
The fikert and abrasive round brushes segments that are used for ceramic work are those that use silicon, diamond, or ceramic carbide filaments.
Ceramic requires matte finishes, which is why abrasive brushes or abrasive brushes combined with rubber are used.
Works on quartz chipboard:
The fikert and abrasive round brushes segments used for quartz chipboard work are the same as for ceramics, but with abrasives that are slightly softer, as quartz is softer than ceramics, and therefore uses abrasives of greater grain or less hardness, and looking for even more finishes and different roughness than that of natural stone.
Deburring of aluminium rims:
The fikert and abrasive round brushes segments are used for the polishing and deburring of the aluminum wheels of vehicles, for the automotive sector, after the machining process to eliminate the surface roughness that remains from the passage of the blades and inserts of the machining.
Medium hard abrasives are used to remove all burrs from the previous process and leave an unmatched finish.
