Twisted in Wire Brushes
Twisted-in-wire brushes are commonly referred to by our customers as tube brushes, bottle brushes, pipe brushes, or internal cleaning brushes. Our standard brushes are suitable for both handheld use and for use in power tools; including drills, drill presses and CNC machining centers.
Twisted-in-wire brushes are made by placing bristle material in between the stem wires and then twisting the stem wires tightly, which secures the filament. With our custom, made-to-order twisted brush capabilities, we can easily adjust the length and diameter of the brush. Combined with our many filament options, the possibilities for your twisted-in-wire brush are practically limitless.
Important: Reversing a twisted-in-wire brush may loosen the stem wire, causing a loss of fill bristles. Always rotate the brush in a clockwise direction when the brush points away from the user. This will tighten the brush construction.
