1. THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF BRUSH FIBERS

Several types of brushes do exist and will be necessary to paint flat, wide or narrow surfaces, hard to reach places, angles between ceilings-walls and baseboards, wall-baseboards, radiators, ducts, moldings, Etc.

There are four main families of brushes: 100% natural brushes, 100% synthetic brushes (sometimes a combination of several types of bristles), synthetic / natural mixes and stain brushes.

• NATURAL BRISTLES: professional brushes, suitable for all solvent-based paints

• MIXED BRISTLES Brushes semi-professional, suitable for any type of paint

• MIXING OF SYNTHETIC BRISTLES: professional brushes, suitable to the type of bristle for all water-based paints or solvent based and varnishes. There are several types of synthetic bristles for brushes, namely the STYLON,

• MIXTURE OF UPPER NATURAL SILKS AND HOLLOW SYNTHETIC SILKS (HOLLESTER): Professional brushes, suitable for staining (lasures).

 

2/ Différents types de soies synthétiques:

There are 7 main types of synthetic fibers for professional brushes and paintbrushes.

21- The STYLON, very good resistance to abrasion, is suitable for industrial paints.

POLYSAIR, characterized by high stiffness, good curvature recovery, good abrasion resistance and excellent resistance to solvents. Suitable for industrial applications.

22- The HOLLESTER made from PBT Polyester. It is a hollow fiber. It is characterized by excellent solvent resistance, excellent curvature recovery, good abrasion resistance and no water absorption. Thanks to its technical properties, the Hollester fiber is therefore ideal for paintbrushes.

23- STYLENE presents a good price / quality ratio, it is characterized by good rigidity, good bend recovery and resistance to abrasion. STYLENE does not absorb moisture, so its properties remain unchanged if it comes into contact with water.

The STYLENE is the most economical product. It is suitable for dry and wet applications, if a high resistance to abrasion is not necessary.

24. RILSAN has high mechanical properties, excellent impact and abrasion resistance, a wide range of operating temperatures and a very satisfactory resistance to aging.

25. The OREL is a conical fiber made of polyester (PBT). It is extruded into Round profile (R: round and solid), Quadriblored pattern (Q: four-leaf clover) or Trilocular (T: with 3 hollow channels inside). It exists in sand, black or white color. It is used for acrylic paints and when protecting wood.

26- The CHINEX is an extruded conical fiber made of nylon 612. It is extruded in Round profile (R: round and solid). It is mainly found in blond. Chinax fibers are used for oil-based paints and water-based paints because, unlike natural fibers, synthetic fibers do not absorb water. They perform better than brushes made of natural fibers, clean very easily and last seven times longer than pig bristles.

They retain their shape, even after prolonged immersion in water, making them ideal for the use of water-based paints.

27- The TYNEX is a conical fiber made of nylon 612. It is extruded into Round profile (R: round and solid), Quadriblored patterns (Q: four-leaf clover) or Trilocular (T: with 3 hollow channels Inside). It exists in black or white color. It is intended for high-end brushes.

3. Formes des manches de pinceaux :

Les pinceaux sont conçus pour des fonctions particulières et sont offerts dans une variété de formes, telles que coniques, droites, arrondies, ovales, biseautées, etc. Les formes du manche peuvent également varier. Le manche peut être large, étroit, long, plat, à visser, etc..

Le pinceau est tenu de façons différentes selon le type de travail effectué. C’est pour cette raison qu’en règle générale, la forme du manche est reliée à la forme du pinceau. Ainsi, les pinceaux coniques et arrondis ont généralement un manche long ou étroit alors que le pinceau droit a un manche plus large et plat, les brosses ont des manches à visser.

4/ TYPES DE BROSSES ET DE PINCEAUX

Réchampir De 5/0 à 8, cette brosse s’utilise pour réchampir et non pour appliquer sur une grande surfaceLa pointe des poils est effilée à cet effet
Pouce De 0 à 8, convient pour appliquer ou border La pointe des poils est plate
Plate De 15 à 100, convient pour appliquer en grande surface (panneau entier)Différents modèles: queue à vernir, queue de morue, queue à battre, queue à lisser…
Brosse à radiateur Convient pour appliquer dans les endroits inaccessibles avec une brosse de pouce.Ex. : derrière un radiateur!!
Spalter Convient exclusivement pour lisser les produits et obtenir une finition tenduEx. : laque tendu lisse appliquer avec un rouleau laqueur et venir lisser avec le spalter le film encore frais
Brosse mixte: mi-soie mi-hollester, s’utilise pour les lasures. Même déclinaison que les brosses ‘traditionnelle’.
Queue anglaise: de 125, soie blanches avec une tirure longue, pour la déco ou la vitrification
Brosse à lessiver: de 52, existe en soie grise, végétal tampico pur (ressemble au soie de porc mais en plus rigide), nylon blanc (rigide), nylon marron fleuré et mélange crin et nylon.

Brosse à lisser Brosse parfaitement plate et très large servant à lisser les laques et les peintures décoratives

5. CLEANING BRUSHES AND PAINTBRUSHES

Never dip the brush for more than a third in the paint.

Once the application is complete, you have to clean your hardware.

BRUSH IN SOLVENT PHASE

Dip the brush with which you apply the solvent-based paint in the diluent.

BRUSH IN AQUEOUS PHASE

Immediately rinse the brush in warm water.

If reuse of the day after the application tool, you can keep your equipment by wrapping in aluminum foil or plastic film. This will prevent the paint from drying on the brush.
