Cosma structuring machines: Aging new wood with nylon abrasive brushes to distress and sand!

Distressing wood to achieve a unique vintage look

Cosma builds industrial surface processing machines. Cosma distressing machines are used in a variety of wood processing industries for a wide range of products, such as wooden floors, wall decorations, scaffolding wood, furniture, doors, garden wood, skirting boards, paneling and decking.

These machines are equipped with Cosma distressing brushes to achieve that unique vintage look, aged wood has. The brushes are made of steel wire or nylon abrasive. Steel wire brushes (wire brushing) distress both the hard grain and the soft grain. Whereas nylon abrasive brushes remove only the soft ‘late wood’ which lies alongside the hard ‘early wood’. Because nylon abrasive brushes leave behind a fully sanded surface, the demand for this type of brush continues to grow.
