Wound brush construction is a versatile construction used in small and large diameter cylinder brushes. Using a steel, aluminum, brass, stainless steel or plastic core, a groove is cut in the core helically in the same manner as an acme screw thread. A stainless steel retaining wire then pulls the filaments down into the core and is fastened at the ends. The advantage of this construction is that the filaments and the retaining wire are recessed into the core. This allows for smaller outside diameters and easier refilling.
When refilling, the central retaining wire is removed and filaments taken out. Industrial brushes are refilled good as new in the same way as they are manufactured at considerable savings. Industrial brushes can be trimmed flat or can be trimmed with a contour, crown, stepped, concave or convex. Industrial brushes can be filled with synthetic or natural filaments and small diameter wire.

Designing a brush can be as simple as replacing and improving on an existing brush, or it can require the consideration of a large number of variables that need to be investigated before the best brush for a job is recommended.
