What are natural bristle brushes?(1)Jul. 05, 2017
Cohwa Brush manufactures natural bristle brushes from numerous natural fibers. Some of the most common natural bristle materials are:
Natural Bristle Corn Brooms
Corn brooms are built to our quality specifications for professional performance and durability. Constructed of 100% corn fiber.
Tampico Bristle Brushes
Tampico fiber is produced in Mexico from the stalk of the Agave plant. Has a soft to medium texture and is off white in color. It is often dyed and blended to give the desired effects to a brush. It is heat, alkali, and acid resistant. The porous fibers absorb water and work wet or dry. More aggressive than nylon or horsehair. Used for removing surface particles and tool marks, dusting, wet scrubbing, cleaning, and spreading liquids. Excellent for removing light feather burrs and for light edge blending when used with a compound. Heat distortion temperature is 283° F.
Horsehair Bristle Brushes
Horsehair is a medium to high cost material. Tail hair is stiffer than mane hair. Its soft to slightly stiff texture gives a scratch-free dry cleaning and has very good durability. Not resistant to acids or alkalis. Used for buffing, cleaning, dusters, and window brushes, excellent for ESD applications. Heat distortion temperature is 380° F.
