Industrial Brush Fibers & Filaments

Brush Fibers on all brushes can vary. Popular selections include vegetable fiber (tampico, palmyra, bassine, union mix), animal hair (goat hair, horsehair, hog bristle), synthetic fiber (nylon 6, 6.6 and 6.12, polystyrene, polyester, polypropylene), and wire (brass, bronze, carbon and stainless steel).  Other materials are available depending on your application.

Natural Brush Fiber

Natural Fiber

[Includes animal and vegetable fibers]
Made of animal bristle or vegetable fibers, natural fiber brushes offer attractive features such as high heat resistance, durability and acid resistance.
Synthetic brush fiber

Synthetic Fiber

[Nylon, Polyester, Polypropylene and Abrasive filaments]
Made of Nylon, Polyester, or Polypropylene, synthetic fiber brushes feature unique characteristics such as excellent bend recovery, chemical resistance and high wet resistance.
Wire brush filament

Wire Filament

[Brass, Phospor Bronze, Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel]
Wire brushes offer special characteristics that make them versatile, including rust resistance, high electrical conductivity and safe contact with food applications.
