Common Brush Applications | Precision Brush

The extensive manufacturing capabilities of the Precision Brush Company have allowed us to offer our clients custom brushes for an almost infinite number of applications. Our engineers have the knowledge and experience to select the ideal combination of brush features to deliver solutions that meet your specific business needs.

If your operations required a brush that acts as a filter or soft cushion, for example, our engineers could help to design a sparse filled brush through filament, trim length and metal channel selection. Conversely, we could also design a custom brush manufactured with thousands of independent filaments if your operation called for a virtually solid brush wall.

Brush Materials 

Precision Brush also offers an extensive selection of brush materials and filaments to fit the needs of a wide variety of industries. Synthetic filaments, such as nylon, polypropylene and polyester, each have different properties of stiffness, absorption and resistance to temperature and chemical agents. Or maybe your business requires brushes constructed with metal filaments, or natural filaments such as hair or plant fibers. Our engineers will learn about your business and offer valuable insight in choosing the best possible materials.

Brush Shapes

Finally, the comprehensive manufacturing capacities at Precision Brush enable our engineers to create brushes of many different shapes, including spirals, coils, arcs, rectangles and disks. The wide variety of our custom products allows Precision Brushes to be used for a virtually limitless amount of applications.

Straight Strip Brushes
