Chip Brush Application
The 4″ Chip Brush with natural bristles are used in the pipeline industry for the application of 2-part epoxy on girth welds. Can also be used in any other painting application.
Chip Paint Brush Features:
Our paint brushes are pure synthetic filament or pure boar bristle. The hairs of both are injected twice with epoxy, making them well seated. The hairs are combed twice. The process ensures a minimal chance of hairs breaking free from the paint brush and contaminating the coating. Also, our paint brushes are very ergonomic and light weight which are liked by the applicators.
Natural Paint Brush vs Synthetic Paint Brush
Paintbrushes come with two basic types of bristles (sometimes called filaments): natural and synthetic. Natural bristles are made from some sort of animal hair, such as hog or badger. Synthetic bristles are often made from nylon, polyester, or a combination of both.
The only functional difference between a Natural Paint Brush and a Synthetic Paint Brush is that Natural bristle brushes can be used with thinners whereas; Synthetic (filament) paint brushes cannot. Some say the synthetic (filament) paint brushes gives a smoother, more even finish. Besides that, it’s a matter of preference. Natural-bristle brushes are best for applying oil-based alkyd paints, and synthetic-bristle brushes are recommended for water-based latex paints. If you try to apply latex paint with a natural-bristle brush, the bristles will absorb the water in the paint and become extremely limp, making it virtually impossible to spread the paint.
Some synthetic brushes can be used to apply both latex and alkyd paints.
