Choose Brush Construction

Maryland Brush offers two types of brush construction, helically wound or high density.  High density strips, while more expensive, offer 35 to 40% more brush roll filament, per square inch of brush face than helically wound brushes and are perfectly balanced.

Choose Brush Roll

There are three types of cans, strip cans (SY 473), Perforated Cans (SY 712) and Solid Wall Cans (SY 20).

SY 712

SY 20

Can Brushings

There are two types of can brushings, double keyway or hex. A hex brush roll shaft is strongly recommended.  It is superior over double keyway brushes and provides a 6-sided positive drive system and provides continuing maintenance of balance.

Choose Filament Material

  • Hard Drawn: The most basic and affordable steel wire available. Not for extreme temperature, high-stress, high-impact or critical applications
  • Stainless Steel: Highly corrosion-resistant material used where contamination or rust can be harmful. Suitable for other stainless steel or aluminum products, or in high-humidity conditions
  • Oil Tempered: The wire is heated to extreme heats to strengthen it without making it brittle. It is no recommended for extreme temperatures or high-impact or shock loads
  • Brass Coated: Steel wire coated with brass for high performance and flexibility. It will not rust and is ideal for rust, paint, and scale removal.
  • Galvanized Steel:  features durable steel construction and is designed to wrap around and stay in place.  Highest grade of corrosion resistance.
  • Phosphor-Bronze: Bronze wire is harder and stiffer than brass due to the addition of tin to the copper. Suitable for cleaning metal parts. 
  • Brass:The softest metal fiber available, used for light to medium cleaning. Brass will not scratch harder metals and will not create sparks. 
  • Nylon: Nylon cylinder brushes are used for many applications including scrubbing, dusting, and cleaning conveyed objects or conveyor belts. They are resistant to heat, tensile force and fatigue and abrasion.
  • Polyethylene:Very strong, durable & impact resistant material, known for its large strength-to-density ratio.
  • Polyvinylchloride: Vinyl is versatile, it can be rigid, pliable as plastic wrap, or thin, clear or colored.
  • Polyethylene:Very strong, durable & impact resistant material, known for its large strength-to-density ratio (lightweight yet super-strong), corrosion resistant, can withstand temperatures up to 120 °C for short periods, and easily recyclable
  • Polyester:This material is less stiff than polypropylene and nylon and offers a lower water absorption rate.
  • Fiberglass-Ultra/Fil: This material is extremely tough, impact & shock resistant, heat resistant (147°C) and strong.
