What is a wire brush?

Wire brushes similar to a standard hand brush, are brushes fitted with metal bristles. The bristles are most commonly made from brass or steel for strength and longevity. Wire brushes can be used in a range of application such as within engineering for rust removal and debris cleaning. Non-sparking brass bristles are also available for safe working in dangerous environments such as gas work and underground works.
