Industrial Brushes Market - Overview

The brush manufacturing industry produces three types of brushes: maintenance brushes (brooms, push brooms, paint brushes, etc.), personal brushes (hair brushes, tooth brushes, etc.), and industrial brushes. Industrial brushes are cutting or cleaning tools. Each filament of an industrial brush in itself is a cutting tool or will be if it is worked on its tip. The proper effect is realized by using the tips of these thousands of filaments at the proper speed with the proper pressure to the work piece. The most widely used wheel brush is called the standard wheel brush. Brushes with diameters of 6 inches and 8 inches are popular, although brushes with diameters ranging from 3 inches to 15 inches are available.

Industrial Brushes Market - Drivers and Restraints

Industrial brushes are used for various purposes apart from cleaning such as metal deburring; removal of rust, paint, or coatings; welding or surface preparation; for painting and coat applications; thread cleaning; etc..These brushes are used in various industries for these applications. Cleaning is of vital importance in the food & beverage and pharmaceutical industries in order to maintain hygienic conditions. Surface cleaning is a priority for these industries as products need to be protected from contaminants. Industrial brushes are heavily used in the automotive industry in petroleum-based or water based cleaning solutions. All metal parts are either stainless steel or brass for corrosion resistance. In the automotive industry, finishing is of the topmost priority, and industrial brushes are used for surface finishing and metal polishing. Automotive cleaning companies install industrial brushes for the purpose of cleaning.

Strip brushes are used for industrial door seals to prevent dirt, dust, birds, and rodents entering the work place or the garage at home. They are also used for cleaning of trucks, trains, cars, and buses. Strip brushes can be wound according to the application. For light work, it may be more suitable to open up the strip to achieve a less dense fill and hence more flexible brush.

Industrial brushes offer some advantages. For instance, when using wire wheel brushes, periodically reversing the direction of rotation helps to take advantage of the self-sharpening action that will result. Filaments can cut along the entire length, rather than solely with their tips. Nylon brushes offer flexibility of filaments, which allows the brushes to finish uneven surfaces with greater ease. The advantages of industrial brushes are expected to propel the industrial brushes market in the coming years.

However, certain restraints and disadvantages of industrial brushes can affect demand for them. Using a brush in excess of its maximum safe speed will cause the brush to ‘self-destruct,’ potentially damage the material being worked on, and most importantly, is dangerous to the operator and those around him/her. The brush wires should not be deflected or bent. Flexing of the wires may cause them to bend and sometimes vibrate and will result in wire fatigue at the base, causing breakage.
