Twisted-In-Wire Brushes at Fuller

Twisted-in-wire brushes have fill, or bristle, material inserted between a wire stem which is then twisted into a brush. Twisted brushes are made by taking a length of galvanized steel, stainless steel, or brass wire doubled over and placing fill (bristle) material between the top and bottom of the doubled-over wire and twisting it up. Common fill materials used in these brushes are either nylon, polyester, horsehair, brass or steel/stainless steel. However, for brushes that will be used for more aggressive deburring actions and need an extended brush life, aluminum oxide filament or silicon carbide is used as the fill material.

Twisted-in-wire brushes are manufactured into various shapes using varying fill material. The fill material is twisted between two wires to create a single-stem, single-spiral construction. The brush face can be manufactured up to 50 inches. Twisted-in-wire brushes are also known as twisted brushes, tube brushes, bottle brushes, and power cleaning brushes.

Common applications of twisted wire brushes include cleaning, polishing, reaming, finishing, or removing debris on surfaces. Twisted wire brushes are used to clean medical and lab equipment and devices, parts in metal and automotive shops, or coils and piping. You may even use them at home to clean guns, computers, or other electronics.

We can provide a variety of custom styles and materials to best fit our customers’ needs, as determined by the intended application.
