Tenax Airflex Brushes
Tenax Airflex Brushes are designed to make your desk table gleaming for a meeting or decorate the living room of your home to delight guests. The Airflex snail lock-backed wet diamond antiquing brush is made for giving your stone a non-polished textured look that resembles the texture of an old worn leather belt. Airflex Brushes diamond brushes can be used on existing tools that are used every day in fabrications shops. The Tenax Filiflex comes in 36, 46, and 60 grit. Made with many narrow bristles, the Tenax Filiflex removes material more aggressively and cuts deeper to create a nice antique look. Grits used to create a typical antique finish: Start with Filiflex 36, 46, and 60 grit. Higher grits are available to create a “caress,” or polished finish.
You are going to need to use the 6 grits (starting with Filiflex and after using Airflex) to take the edge down and give it the antiqued look When you are finished it will have texture and the full color of the stone will be exposed with no polish. These can be used on hand polishers (with the snail lock backer plate), C frame polishers (ProEdge), or any machine that uses a snail lock holder.
