Choosing the right filaments is an essential step in making
effective brushes. They come in an array of materials and
There are four categories of filaments:
wires: steel (high-resistance, brasscoated, stainless
steel, tempered), brass and bronze.
fibres: polyamide or nylon (types of quality: 6, 6/6,
6/10, 6/12), Rilsan®, polypropylene, polyester and abrasive
fibres: both animal (horse and goat hair, pigs' bristles,
goose feathers, ostrich feathers) and vegetable (tampico)
have antistatic properties.
fibres: Wytex®, Pekalon, glass fibre, FRH, carbon fibre,
etc. resist temperatures up to 200°C, chemicals and mechanical
constraints (bending, traction). They release no toxic gases
The look of filaments varies on the style and durability you
are looking for. We offer filaments with different diameters,
straight or crimped filaments and various colours (white and
black are used most).
We often come up with new types of speciality filaments, so
do not hesitate to contact us.
