The abrasive fibreglass pencil from our trusted and highly reliable own brand RS PRO is ideal for preparation and de-rusting on a range of materials such as metal, wood and plastic. It is also a great tool for accurate and precise cleaning in hard to reach places due to its durable lightweight design. The propelling action on the glass fibre pen allows more less of the glass fibres to be exposed, depending on the level of abrasiveness you want to achieve. The shorter the glass fibre, the more abrasive the action of the tool becomes.

What is a fibreglass pencil?

A fibreglass pencil is a versatile tool that can be used to clean a variety of materials such as wood, metal and plastic ready for preparation, as well as de-rusting metal. They often feature a propelling action to expose more or less of the fibres depending on the level of abrasiveness you need.

How to use a glass fibre pencil

In order to achieve the best results with a fibreglass pencil, there are certain techniques required. Due to the delicate fibres, gentle brush strokes are recommended, letting the abrasiveness of the fibreglass do the hard work. It is recommended to wear protective gloves and face wear as debris from the fibreglass and material can irritate the skin if it comes into contact.

How to control alter the length of the fibreglass bristles

In order to extend the bristles of the fibreglass, simply turn the dial on the top of the pencil clockwise or anticlockwise, depending on whether you want to retract or expose more of the bristles.

Can the fibreglass be refilled?

If the glass fibres become worn out or too short, they can be easily replaced with replacement glass fibre tips such as the RS PRO fibreglass bristle (514-874).
