|STRIP BRUSHES – GENERAL|
STRIP BRUSHES are composed of a U-shaped metal profile (backing) in which the filament is lodged in a continuous row.
There are two types of metal backings: single band (details left) and double band (details right). In the more traditional single band backing the filaments are fastened between the U-shaped band and a core wire.
In the double band backing the filaments are anchored between the external band (toothed) and the internal band.
The single band style is far more common. Double band backings are used for very heavy-duty applications.
SPIRAL – the brush is wound in a spiral shape and secured to a tube or shaft
LINEAR – the brush is straight and is cut to length during production
INTERCHANGEABLE SEGMENTS – the brush is composed of a roller fitted with interchangeable linear strip brushes
Because of their type of construction strip brushes are particularly suitable for making linear elements or medium/large size rollers.
