  • Washing Cars All Summer Long

    The summer weather is here, and that means a lot of things. We can now go for evening walks, go to the beach, eat outside, go biking and, for me at least, can wash our cars. Many people do this several times each year, possibly even every month or so. In the winter months this is by going to an actual car wash. I however, being slightly cheap, tend to just wait until it is warm enough outside for me to do it myself. If I'm lucky this means sometime...

  • LA Times Features Gordon Brush in the Sunday, February 3, 2013 Business Section

    The front page of the business section in the Los Angeles Times features Gordon Brush Mfg. Co., Inc. in the Sunday, February 3, 2013 issue. The article brings to light some serious concerns about regulatory agencies and ambiguous codes that prohibit a California manufacturer to remain in place and even expand. Gordon Brush first met this obstacle with local government agencies in 2009, and still continues to seek expansion.   Planning to increase his 51,000-square-foot factory in Commerce by 20,000 feet, owner Ken Rakusin has “almost given up,” but says...

  • Cleaning off Conveyors With Industrial Brushes

    Conveyor belts can be found at work in manufacturing industries, food production, grocery stores, packaging, toy assembly and so many more. While they are incredibly useful, they can also be incredibly annoying to clean. Say something spills at the grocery store, possibly milk, and drains along the conveyor belt. As it continues to move it just keeps spreading until half of the conveyor is covered. This makes a hassle to clean because you have to move it completely through, scrubbing all the while. One solution many choose in these cases...

  • From Cleaning Books to Refinishing Cars

    One thing that always really bothered me in college was all the price tag stickers on the books for class. I would buy used books to save money and while the book itself was in a very good condition, it was covered in about fifty stickers stacked one on top of the other. And if you tried to peel them off you would be left with a sticky annoying spot on the book that was even worse than the stickers. There was simply no way to win. I remember scrubbing...

  • Industrial growth continued through 2014

    ST. GEORGE – For managers at recent St. George move-in Industrial Brush Corp., their new home has been a breath of fresh air. After 38 years operating out of Pomona, California, the company made a move to Utah to take advantage of more business-friendly tax and regulatory rules, as well as lower utility and operating costs. For a company that has prided itself on attracting good help and convincing workers to stay on-board for the long haul, it also helps to have a lower cost of living for...

Industry Information

Industrial Brushes

Industrial brushes are bristled cleaning, painting, finishing and machining tools. A brush is the combination of bristles and a holding piece on which the bristles are mounted. The composition and shape of both as well as their relationship to each other determine the brush’s function.

Because of the great diversity of contexts in which industrial brushes are used, an equally great diversity of brushes is necessary to accommodate them. Brushes vary in their shape, size, bristle material and in many other respects. Wheel brushes, for example, are very different from artist brushes. Wheel brushes can feature wire or nylon bristles set in and situated around a circular ring. That ring is usually attachable to a motorized wand or other tool that causes the brush to spin. Such brushes are often used in finishing, deburring and other industrial surface treatment applications. Artist brushes are almost always hand-held, soft-bristled, small brushes used for the careful application of paint and stains to surfaces. They can also be used for the careful cleaning of delicate equipment and even archeological discoveries. Brooms, mops, block scrubbers and wire scratch brushes are used in maintenance, parts cleaning and janitorial services. Sweeper brushes, power brushes and other larger brush varieties are applied in more heavy-duty applications. Sweeper brushes, for example, are used in small vacuum cleaners, hard floor buffers and even street sweepers. Power brushes are used in manufacturing and fabrication for deburring and other machining processes. You can find manufacturers and suppliers of them here on IQS Directory. Custom brushes can also be developed according to your specific brushing needs.

The variety of bristles defines the use of a brush, as is exemplified by a paintbrush that is composed of soft nylon fibers mounted in a clamped metal ring affixed to a wooden handle. This is ideal for delicate cleaning and paint application. It is easily hand-held, allows for very precise and controlled movement and will not abrade or otherwise damage a surface. However, such a brush configuration would not be useful in rigorous cleaning or surface treatment applications; mounting metal or stiff plastic bristles horizontally on a small wooden handle would make applying the force necessary to effectively clean a surface difficult for most people. Instead, cleaning brushes and other similar brushes are mounted on handles that give their users move leverage, making their use much easier and more effective. Wheel brushes must be precisely manufactured in terms of their means of attachment to motors and in terms of their bristle composition, and the same is true for sweepers. In both cases, the bristles must be capable of adequately treating a surface without damaging it. They must also be durable enough to function effectively without degrading or becoming dislodged.
