Strip brushes, often called metal channel back brushes, are versatile and durable. These brushes consist of natural, synthetic or metal fills held securely in place by a U-shaped metal channel and center wire. Strip brushes are manufactured straight (72" length), and can be transformed into other shapes such as disks, ovals, cups or cylinders.

Strip brushes can be customized to fit an enormous amount of applications, including but not limited to: sealing, conveyor cleaning, surface cleaning, surface roughening, dusting, product separation or transfer, tensioning devices, static dissipation, external or internal pipe cleaning, filter or screen cleaning, glass washing or fruit or vegetable washing. The size of the strip brush is determined by channel size (the metal back), and the fill material and brush configuration (such as straight, coiled, wound or cup-like). Trim lengths are virtually unlimited; channel sizes range by number: the smaller the number the smaller the base width; fill material depends on what your application requires. Almost all fills are available, including conductive, static dissipative, in a range of diameter sizes.

Strip brushes are incredibly versatile in their brush characteristics and shape and can be customized to fit almost any application. In general, strip brushes can be used as barricades, sealers, or for cleaning. A brush strip filled with nylon filament is often used as a flexible brush seal on equipment. A strip seal brush functions as a flexible shield against mist, dust, light, heat, or intrusion into a point of operation. Nylon strip brushes can function on conveyor lines as a product hold-down, as an applicator of wet or dry coatings, or as a passive duster or wiper to sweep away loose debris or to redirect or stabilize your moving product. Using conductive nylon, you can also create a static reduction strip brush. From weather seal applications to wiping or cleaning, these brushes are versatile and easy to mount into place.
