Cleaning brushBottle brushes

One of our best-selling brushes is the bottle brush. It is used for a vast array of tasks but these days not used as much for bottles.  Because of the way the brush is designed it can get into all the nooks and crannies that other equipment just can’t reach.  We have a wide range of customers from the hotel and catering sectors to the manufacture and servicing of musical instruments.

We take away the stress of cleaning tubes, pipes and a vast array of manufacturing equipment by designing durable twisted-in-wire brushes that ensure longevity and high performance. Our brushes have bristles made of nylon or polypropylene. This enables the brush to maintain its quality even with daily and rigorous usage.
