Sizes and Colors Several fill materials are available and used
in stapled brushes. Materials used are bristle:
various mixtures of fill materials used together, as are available
Synthetic filament sizes range from .0025 to .060 and more while
wire sizes range from .003 to .020. Filament type and sizes
are determined by the application requirement. Filaments other
than natural materials can be provided either crimped or straight
(level) depending on application and requirements.
Synthetic filaments are generally black or natural (white) in
color. However, synthetics are available in a wide range of
A variety of solid block materials are used for practically
any application and requirement. Blocks can be shaped to fit
in practically any mounting or holding mechanism. Close tolerances
can be maintained depending on the block material and requirement.
common materials are:
molded or extruded plastics
An extremely wide variety of designs and densities are provided
in stapled brushes to accomplish the desired effect for the
application and requirement. The function of the brush and filament
size determines the density and size of the tuft holes.
Patterns can be extremely dense to very open. Blocks generally
bored straight, can be angled, flared, or converged to allow
for specific trim shapes and to meet specific applications.
Each pattern is specially designed for the application. Hole
patterns can also be designed around mounting and fixture holes
without affecting the function of the brushing action.
