Nylon Bristle Continuum Example


  • Static-neutral bristles will prevent static buildup
  • Natural taper in the bristles helps clean detailed profiles
  • Split-ends at the tips of hair act like fine feathers
  • Fiber softness will not scratch parts
  • Can be used in wet or dry environments
  • Natural fibers have much higher absorption rate than synthetics
  • Brushes using natural fibers tend to “load-up” more
  • Not suited for use in environments with harsh chemicals
  • Low bending fatigue resistance limits brush life
  • Natural fiber brushes are more susceptible to supply chain issues

Natural fiber brushes can be wound using our Fineset™, Tufted™, and Double Band Channel (DBC) winding technologies. Natural fibers are most commonly seen in our Fineset™ brushes.

Constructions are available in a variety of spirals, densities (in bristles per square inch), and bristle trim lengths.
