Synthetic Paintbrush Filaments

You can’t make a great paintbrush without quality paintbrush filaments. How a paintbrush picks up, holds, and delivers paint, as well as its stiffness, bend recovery, and resistance to repeated cleaning, all depend on the kind of synthetic paintbrush filaments used in its manufacture.

This video explains the parts of a paintbrush in detail and walks viewers through the many available synthetic filament shapes and finishes—from tapered and hollow filaments to tipped and flagged ends—that manufacturers can use to bring out the paintbrush performance they’re looking for.

When quality is important, insist on long-lasting, premium-quality Tynex®, Chinex® and Orel® brand filaments from DuPont for your paintbrush applications.
