  • How to Choose Nylon Abrasive Wheel Brushes

    By: Brush Research Manufacturing Abrasive nylon wheel brushes are a type of industrial brush for removing burrs, blending edges, cleaning parts, and improving surface condition. As their name suggests, these wheel-shaped power brushes have nylon abrasive filaments that work like flexible files. Wheel brushes with other types of filaments are also available. Typically, these brush tools have brass, carbon steel, stainless steel, Tampico, or nylon filaments instead of abrasive-impregnated nylon. Types of Nylon Abrasive Wheels Buyers can choose from several types of abrasive nylon wheel brushes. Options include standard nylon...

  • Nails and Brushes

    When I was younger, my friends and I would love to paint our toenails with designs like flowers, dots or other little things on them. There were plenty of girls who would go with their parents and get these done professionally, but we did not have that kind of money, so instead we would just pool all of our nail polish together and make our own unique designs. While it may not have looked as nice, the small nail polish brushes are hard to maneuver, we had fun at least....

Industry Information

Nylon Brushes

Nylon brushes are any type of brush with filaments made from the polymer nylon. Nylon is one of the most frequently used materials in brush creation, for good reason. Brushes made with this nylon filament gain the polymer properties of excellent bend recovery, high heat tolerance, superior abrasion resistance and above average chemical resistance. In addition, they gain and wield positive nylon characteristics such as: exceptional fatigue life, low to moderate water absorption and the ability to work in both wet and dry environments. Thanks to their many wonderful qualities, there are many types of applications nylon brushes can serve, including the cleaning and removing of contaminants, dusting, aggressive scrubbing, surface finishing, rough surface preparation and weld blending, and also speciality industrial applications. The demand for speciality applications is especially high in industries like aerospace, medical, semiconductor and electronics. Therefore, nylon brushes are essential ingredients in their processes, as well as the processes of automotive, commercial, industrial, food processing and textile industry applications.

Types of specific brushes in which nylon filament is used include artist brushes, cleaning brushes, spiral brushes, power brushes and strip brushes. Artist brushes are employed for a variety of artistic and industrial purposes. Due to the exacting nature of their strokes, artist brushes must be of high quality. They range greatly in size and shape. The term “cleaning brushes” applies to many brushes, even when it is narrowed by the category of nylon brushes, because cleaning is such a vital component of any process. Some of the most widely used nylon cleaning brushes include bottle brushes, tube brushes and handle brushes. Bottle and tube brushes, as their names suggest, are designed to clean the inside and hard-to-reach places of narrow mouth glassware and test tubes, respectively. Handle brushes are very common cleaning nylon cleaning brushes, available in a variety of sizes, with different handle designs and materials. Applications they serve include shoe polishing, gentle dusting, surface scouring, critical environment control, descaling, buffing and rust removal. Next, the term “spiral brushes” can refer to a few different kinds of nylon brushes, like those cylindrical and circular brushes used for commercial and industrial manufacturing. However, most of the time, the term references twisted-in wire brushes. Power brushes, which are electrically powered or attached to an electrically-powered tool, such as a drill, are generally circularly shaped wheel brushes. Most often, they are used to deburr newly fabricated parts at the beginning of surface finishing. Finally, strip brushes are long, thin brushes that are used for a number of different conveyor sealing, surfacing and cleaning applications. They are available in a number of different forms, such as flexible, metal back, staple set and formed strip brushes, which are offered in a variety of shapes, such as spiral, coils, cups and arcs. They are also offered with a variety of trim and seal options.

There are many types of nylon that may be used to create a nylon brush. In fact, the properties of a nylon brush, such as its stiffness, are directly related to its bristle grade, length and diameter. A few common nylon grades include 6 and 12. Nylon 6 is known for its toughness, high tensile strength, elasticity, wrinkle-proof nature, luster and resistance to acids and alkalis. Nylon 12 is selected for applications that will benefit from its characteristics of chemical resistance, hardness, tensile stress and insensitivity to stress cracking. Nylon 610 and Nylon 612, or 6 10 and 6 12, respectively, are the most commonly used nylon polymers for filaments. In addition to grades, nylon brush manufacturers make use of many speciality types of nylon, such as abrasive nylon and conductive nylon. Abrasive nylon is created when heat stabilized nylon is coextruded with grains of material that increase abrasiveness, like diamond, aluminum oxide or silicon carbide. The size of the grains with which the nylon is coextruded is related to the diameter of the finished nylon filament. The larger the grains, the greater the diameter. Note that larger diameter nylon filaments are less flexible and more susceptible to fatigue and fracture than their smaller counterparts. Conversely, smaller diameter filaments bend and recover easily. Abrasive nylon brushes have applications in that require a somewhat more aggressive touch, like cutting, surface finishing, the finishing of irregular profiles and deburring. The other aforementioned type of speciality nylon, conductive nylon, is created when the surface of nylon filament is coated with a conductive material, such as carbon. It is similar to nylon static dissipative or anti-static brushes. Both are frequently used for static elimination applications, where the anti-static nature of an environment, such as a clean room, must be maintained. Nylon filaments are generally available in their naturally milky clear color or in any number of dyed colors.
