Design Your Strip Brush

Metal Backing (Channel)

JHX provides custom strip brushes with tailored Metal Backing (Channel) options for diverse applications. The U-shaped channel ensures optimal filament support, rigidity, stability, flexibility, and durability. JHX’s customized Metal Backing (Channel) solutions enable each brush to meet specific requirements such as filament density, stiffness, and brush reach while maintaining effectiveness and longevity.

By offering custom Metal Backing (Channel) designs, JHX ensures high-performance and long-lasting strip brushes tailored to various industrial and commercial applications.

Standard U-shaped Channel: The most common channel shape, the standard U-shaped channel, provides support and stability to the filaments. This versatile shape is suitable for a wide range of applications, including sealing, surface cleaning, conveyor cleaning, and chip removal.

V-shaped Channel: The V-shaped channel tapers inward toward the base, allowing for more filament density and increased stiffness. This shape is ideal for applications requiring more aggressive brushing, such as deburring or heavy-duty cleaning.

Y-shaped Channel: The Y-shaped channel features two separate legs that branch out from the base, providing additional support for longer filaments. This shape is suitable for applications that require extended brush reach or more flexibility, such as surface finishing or gentle cleaning.

W-shaped Channel: The W-shaped channel has a double U-shape, providing extra rigidity and support for the filaments. This shape is ideal for applications that require increased stiffness and durability, such as heavy-duty scrubbing or aggressive surface cleaning.

We tailor these Metal Backings to suit our customers’ specific applications and needs. If you’re looking for a unique style of Metal Backing, don’t hesitate to get in touch and chat with us about it.

Strip Brush Fill Material

Brush filling material refers to the type of bristles or fibers used in a brush. These materials can be natural, like animal hair or vegetable fibers, or synthetic, like nylon or polypropylene. The choice of brush filling material depends on the specific application and desired properties, such as stiffness, abrasion resistance, heat resistance, and chemical compatibility. Different brush filling materials offer various benefits and are suitable for a wide range of cleaning, scrubbing, or polishing tasks.

Nylon is a highly durable synthetic polymer and is resistant to most common chemicals. It has excellent bend recovery and is available in three grades: Type 6, Type 6.6, and Type 6.12. Nylon bristles are suited for cleaning and scrubbing applications due to their strong abrasion resistance properties. They are available in black or natural colors, and diameters range from .003″ to .050″.

This low-cost, high-performance synthetic filament is ideal for wet or dry applications. Polypropylene has excellent stiffness when wet, is inert to most solvents, oils, acids, and chemicals, and is fungus resistant. Filament diameters range from .006″ to .060″, with crimped and level filaments available.

A vegetable fiber obtained from the agava lechuguilla plant, Tampico is suitable for low abrasion scrubbing and washing applications due to its high absorbency rate. It can be used wet or dry and is heat, alkali, and acid resistant.

Soft, resilient, and long-lasting, horse hair is excellent for dusting, flux removal, and general cleanup. It is non-conductive and can be used dry for polishing, scratch-free cleaning, or sweeping in higher-temperature applications.

Also known as Chung King, hog bristle is the stiffest natural material available and provides the best possible cleaning. It is non-conductive and works well for dealing with sticky, crusty materials or viscous fluids.

This highly corrosion-resistant wire is used where contamination or rust is a problem. It is non-shedding and excellent for burnishing without removing the base material.

Offering high fatigue life and durable cutting action, high carbon steel is suitable for work on steel and iron workpieces, as well as wood, aluminum, brass, and copper. Common applications include weld cleaning, deburring, rust and oxide removal, surface preparation, and surface finishing.

We provide a wide range of brush-filling materials to accommodate most applications. Plus, we also directly supply the brush filling, and if needed, we can perform basic processing like cutting it to the desired size. This way, our customers can conveniently work with the brush filling as soon as they receive it.
