Polypropylene ( PP) bristles for brushes and brooms

Polypropylene bristles are the most widely used materials in brush and broom industry. Their specific yield is very advantageous because of their low density. They can be manufactured in UV stabilized quality, if required.

PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS

Density:                                                                                          0.90 – 0.91 g/cm3

Melting point:                                                                              171 ºC

Vitrification temperature of the amorphous phase:   -15 ºC

CHEMICAL RESISTANCE (on 20°C)

Chemical resistance of polypropylene is excellent.

FIELDS OF APPLICATION

Household and body-care brushes, brooms, industrial and technical brushes.

QUALITY ALTERNATIVES

Possible bundle length: 35 – 2000 mm

Not oiled: for manual use

Oiled: for process with high-speed machines

Straight (level)

Crimped: we can offer ten types of crimping marked with numbers 1-9 and letter “A”. You can find data of crimping types here.
