Dose the Filament size that can be customized?

At the beginning of the manufacture of each brush, different filaments will be selected in consideration of its final use. It is also essential to specify the length and thickness of the filaments in addition to the material. Having said that, how do we choose the length and thickness of the filament? Here is a brief introduction.

Length of filament:

Choosing the right filament length for your brush is the first step. Choosing the right filament length depends on the application: longer filaments are better for uneven surfaces since they increase the flexibility of the bristles, while shorter filaments can be stiffer, making them ideal for aggressive applications. Beware of filaments that are too short or too long. It is true that insufficient filament length might lead to premature bristle exhaustion, thereby reducing your costs. Long bristles, however, are more prone to unraveling.

Thickness of filament:

The next step is to choose the right filament thickness for your brush after you've chosen the right length. As the name implies, thickness here refers to a filament's diameter (a single filament's thickness).

In general, filament sizes can be customized between 0.03mm and 3.0mm.

Generally, the larger the diameter of the filament, the better the effect. The shorter the brush filament, the stronger the grinding force; the longer the brush filament, the weaker the grinding force.

Additionally, larger diameter filaments will fatigue more quickly than smaller diameter filaments, resulting in a shorter brush life.

It is necessary to customize the specific size (length, thickness) according to the needs of your specific product.
