Choose the best brush for your specific application. To prevent bacteria growth, synthetic materials are the
best choice with high quality natural materials a good alternate. Our fine selection of bristles offers you a
choice of solutions for any application.
Nylon – Excellent abrasion resistance, shear/break strength, and bristle bend recovery. Very good
chemical resistance and sustains temperatures up to 350°F. Best choice for abrasive, rough use.
Abrasive Nylon – DuPont filament with silicon carbide in each bristle is designed for use in
general light scrubbing to heavy-duty scrubbing and stripping. Tynex® A Nylon cleans floors faster
and reaches into grout lines for thorough cleaning.
Polyester – Excellent chemical resistance, ultra violet light resistance, and bristle bend recovery.
Very good abrasion resistance, and tear/break strength. Sustains temperatures up to 350˚F. Best
choice for all around use and for extreme exposure to cleaning chemicals.
Polypropylene – Excellent chemical resistance to acids, oils, fungus, and bacteria growth. Good
abrasion resistance, and shear/break strength. Sustains temperatures up to 225°F. Best choice as
an economical synthetic foodservice alternative to natural fibers.
Horsehair – A natural pointed tip, good shear/break resistance, and soft cleaning properties. Good
durability and excellent blending properties makes this an ideal choice for interior floor sweeps
when blended with other fibers.
Tampico – Natural Tampico fiber from the Mexican agave plant is a soft to medium soft bristle with
very good durability. Good choice for finer floor sweeps and general cleaning scrub brushes.
Stainless Steel Wire – Rust proof, excellent chemical resistance, excellent bend recovery,
provides a high degree of abrasion and wear resistance. Best foodservice choice for aggressive
cleaning on grills and other heavily soiled foodservice equipment.
Carbon Steel Wire – Provides a high degree of abrasion and wear resistance. Good bend
recovery. Best choice for aggressive cleaning on grills and other heavily soiled equipment.
Brass Wire – Rust resistant, provides a high degree of abrasion but is softer than
stainless steel or carbon steel to prevent equipment damage. For use on ovens,
griddles, and other metal equipment that is heavily soiled but cannot sustain
