What is a SuperBrush Brush Sander?

A SuperBrush brush sander is a machine that can be equipped with different types of sanding heads to achieve a wide variety of finishes on wood or plastic composite material. It is commonly used for applications that would traditionally be done by hand, such as profile sanding mouldings or raised panel doors, or to achieve labor-intensive finishes like distressing. Unlike a drum sander which can only dimension a flat surface, the bristles on the brushes flex and bend to conform to profiles.

What do the different types of brush do?

The main categories of brush heads are flatter, nylon, and wire. There are many variations of brush heads within those categories, resulting in dozens of brush head options. For example, using a flatter style brush will help you to achieve a hand-sanded finish on profiles like mouldings and raised panel doors. It is also commonly used in raw wood sanding to open the grain for stain, and then used for sealer sanding in between coats of stain or primer simply by changing the grit of flatter strip. Wire brushes are most commonly used to achieve a distressed or weathered finish. Nylon brushes work well for cleaning reclaimed wood or light distressing. These are just a few of the different applications for each brush type.

Wire Brush

This product is used to distress wood. This will give it a wire brushed, reclaimed look. Within this category, there are multiple types of wire brushes based on the type of application you are working with.

Nylon Abrasive

This is a broad category. This can be used for anything from scuff sanding, cleaning barn wood and distressing new boards.

Flatter Brush Head

This is used for raw wood sanding, scuff sanding and in some cases cleaning barn wood. This is the most common brush used for sanding cabinet doors.

How long does it take to change a brush head?

The single head machines are designed for quick and easy brush head changeover. It’s quite simple and most people can change it in under 15 minutes and be up and running again.

What are some of the benefits of a SuperBrush?

Increase Output: SuperBrush sanders are able to run material up to 30ft a minute (depending on the model you choose), much faster than sanding by hand!

Increase Consistency: When hand sanding, an employee is likely going to produce a different result at 8 a.m than he is at 5 p.m. With a SuperBrush sander, the results are the same time after time.

Low Learning Curve: A SuperBrush sander is not difficult to operate. After a short training period, nearly anyone can run a SuperBrush sander.

Versatility: Perhaps the biggest benefit of a SuperBrush sander is its versatility. Vastly different finishes can be achieved by changing the brush head, or more finite changes can be achieved by changing the speed of the conveyor, the RPM of the brush head, or the depth of bristle penetration.
