Felton's 187 Brush

A terrific vibration can be felt in the unbalanced brush, leading to excessive wire breakage. Tested at an AGI annual sales kickoff, the Felton’s Knotted Wire End Brushes spun smooth even at top speed.

Felton's #187 Case Study

During a recent study with McMaster University, Felton’s #187 knotted wire end brushes were tested against our leading competitors.

Problem 1: Wire Flying
Felton’s Solution: High Quality Wire

Problem 2: Vibration
Felton’s Solution: Small Patented Design Changes

Study Results

felton wire breaks

Felton: Only 9 Wires Flew Off


Leading Competitor: 133 Wires Flew

Conclusion: The use of high quality wire decreased the number of wires breaking off. This increased the brush life and made it a substantially safer product to use. The design improvements resulted in less brush vibration, longer tool life and better ergonomics.
