Hand Drawn
Hand drawn brushes are typically used in more aggressive applications where a very se-
cure mounting of the bristle is essential.
Reasons for Hand Drawing Brushes:
1.
Brush Core
Core material is metallic or a very brittle substrate for staple set construction.
Core material is flexible or too soft for staple set construction.
Core material is incompatible with bristle for fused construction.
Core cross-section is too thin for staple set.
2.
Specialized Geometries
Bristles may be applied in geometric profiles not available in other construction types.
Examples: Straight, Staggered or Chevron.
3.
Harsh Environments
Heat, caustics, and other environmental issues often require hand drawn construction.
4.
Wear Life
Hand drawing is always the best choice when high wear issues are a factor. With
hand drawn products you only purchase the brush core once, then return the core
and we will refill your brush with new bristle at a fraction of the new cost.
Compared to staple set brushes hand drawn brushes can be refilled many times.

wide range of uses and shapes, they fulfill a vast array of tasks. Some traits of this brush
type are as follows;

Brush Core
Core materials cannot be too hard or too soft. Typically thicker for staple penetration.

Both man-made and natural materials may be used in staple set brushes. They are
available in a wide range of textures, styles, colors and diameters.
3.
Staples
Staple materials are tailored to meet your specific application needs.
4.
Replace or Refill
Staple set brushes can be refilled a limited number of times at a reduced cost.
5.
