About Our Brushes
Brushes Corp. provides custom engineered brushes for virtually any application that utilizes a twisted-in wire brush. Utilizing our 45-years of manufacturing experience and expertise, we can develop a brush that meets all your specified criteria at a very competitive price.
Constructing the exact brush for your application!
The first step in designing a brush that will provide superior performance is to select a stem design, material, length, and diameter. Does you brush require flexibility, stiffness, abrasion, chemical or corrosion resistance? We can recommend the correct stem material for your application.
Your choice of fill bristles are twisted between two (2) stem wires.
Single Spiral - Double Stem
Your choice of fill bristles are twisted between four (4) stem wires.
Double Spiral – Double Stem
Two (2) layers of your choice of fill bristles are twisted between four (4) stem wires.

Bristle / Fill Options
As with the stem materials and design, our recommendation for fill materials will be based upon your application requirements - flexibility, stiffness, abrasion, chemical or corrosion resistance.
Standard Bristle Materials
- Carbon Steel
- Stainless Steel
- Synthetic Fibers
- Animal Fibers
- Vegetable Fibers
Aluminum, copper, phosphor bronze brass, nickel, silver.
Brass Wire Brushes
Rust-proof and spark resistant, brass provides gentle brushing action.
Phosphor Bronze Wire Brushes
Similar to brass with better shape retention.
Carbon Steel Wire Brushes
Typically used in applications where abrasion is required in dry environments. High carbon is utilized for deep cutting where aggressive abrasion is required.
Stainless Steel Wire Brushes
Rust-proof and strong and ideal for applications that involve stainless steel or aluminum. Will not leave ferrous deposits.
Oil Tempered Wire (Flat Wire) Brushes
Flat wire is the most aggressive brushing material available.
Crimped Brush Bristles or Straight Brush Bristles?
A crimped, or wavy, bristle extends the life of the brush and is ideal for abrasive cleaning.
Straight bristles are softer and more flexible.
Natural & Animal Fibers
Generally used in washing, light deburring and polishing applications.
Dark brown bassine is an excellent material for heavy-duty scrub brushes.
A blend of tampico and palmyra fibers at an economical cost. Used in medium scrubbing.
A selected grade of polished tampico, patent is slightly stiffer and more durable.
Palmyra is a medium coarse fiber.
Palmyra stalks are very coarse, stiff, low cost fibers.
Tampico is an off-white fiber that holds liquids well, is gentle to polished surfaces, and resistant to high temperatures.
Natural bristle will retain enormous amounts of water and ideal for wet applications.
Horsehair brushes are resilient and long lasting, ideal for polished surfaces and can be blended with a variety of other materials.
Typically used for applications in corrosive environments with acids and alkalis.
Tough and long wearing, Nylon discourages bacterial growth and resists most acids. Excellent for industrial and food service applications.
Resists acids, alkalis and organic solvents.
Excellent for washing, polishing, and soft wiping of delicate surfaces.
Ideal for acidic environments and outdoors. Does not absorb moisture and slightly stiffer than nylon.
Resists abrasion and most acids and solvents. Does not absorb moisture. Can be extruded in a variety of shapes. Note: not UV stable.
A large diameter polypropylene.
These heavy-duty durable bristles that are chemical, bacterial and mildew resistant.
