Brush Construction

Construction Methods
staple_set Staple Set:
Filaments are compressed and inserted into pre-drilled holes under pressure and retained by steel staples driven into the core.
Epoxy Set:
As above, filaments are cemented into pre-drilled holes in the core using epoxy resin. This method makes a secure, sterilizable brush that can be done without staples. Unstapled epoxy-set brushes are hand work and expensive.
wire_drawn Wire Drawn:
Also known as Drawn-In-Wire – brushes are assembled by sewing filaments into pre-drilled holes with fine wire through the core where it is tied. This is a very secure method of holding material into the brush and it is labor intensive.
Trim Shapes
Flat style brush Flat:
Most common shape used unless there are specific reasons for using other shapes.
Bevel style brush Angled:
To fit the filament to the surface being worked upon.
Convex style brush Convex:
To conform to the surface being brushed.
Step style brush Step:
For brushing irregular or uneven surfaces. Many variations are possible.
Combination step style brush Combination Step:
Combination of step trims to conform to the surface being brushed.
Double bevel style brush Double Bevel, Chisel or Converging:
To conform to the surface being brushed, or for greater concentration of brush filaments to obtain more intense brushing action.
