The CLING ON! is made of a specially engineered mixture of the best synthetic filaments of Dupont De Nemours; in various lengths and diameters and tipped and flagged; fully locked in epoxy cement to prevent loss of hair, with a stainless steel ferrule and a beechwood handle.
The main component of the mixture is a very high-quality nylon filament, solid round tapered. The durability of this filament is 5 to 9 times higher than hog bristles en up to 1,5 times higher than most polyester filaments. The shape preservation (the so-called bend-recovery), even more enhanced by the special dyeing technique, is unequalled.
Dyeing the filaments also increases the cleanability, because the paints can hardly stick to the filaments. Of great importance is the way you keep and maintain the brushes (please read the paragraph: “TIPS”).
De nylon filament is very smooth and supple and its flagged tips provide a “velvetlike” touch and a smooth and flawless finishing. It retains its stiffness in water en returns perfectly in its original shape.
This filament is resistant against almost all chemicals and solvents and withstands high temperatures without losing its characteristics permanently. Only after a long duration of exposure to extreme conditions or chemicals some degradation occurs.
The second component of the mixture , a high-quality polyester filament, has been mixed in to provide the right stiffness or resistance. This, slightly shorter, filament is stiffer en also retains its stiffness and shape when immersed in water. Also solid, round and tapered.
