The diamond Flex-Hone tools from Brush Research Manufacturing are designed for deburring, edge blending and surface finishing operations in hard materials such as carbide, ceramic and aerospace steel alloys. The tools are constructed of resin-bond diamond crystals with high friability to create self-sharpening edges. The tools are said to be free-cutting with a quick cut rate and quality finish. A nickel-coated abrasive aids heat dissipation and improves bond retention. The tools are available in sizes ranging from 4 to 20 mm with three different mesh sizes. Other sizes and mesh selections can be specially ordered. Applications include guide and drill bushings, ceramic cylinders, aerospace components, and medical parts.

Brush Research Manufacturing will also display its Nampower abrasive disc brushes and abrasive nylon-composite hub wheel brushes, as well as its miniature abrasive nylon brushes.
