For the production of interdental brushes we offer a variety of wires in multiple presentations.
Preferably plastic coated wires (polyurethane or polyester) are being used. The following colours are common:
yellow / green / red / blue / violet / black / transparent / pink / orange / white
All wires are available without coating as well.
The selection of the right material depends in the first place on the brush dimension, but also on requirements regarding stiffness and durability of the final product.
Today AISI 304 is proven as a standard for the majority of applications. With this good results can be achieved. In some cases also AISI 302 or AISI 316 are being used alternatively.
Due to the trend to smaller micro-bushes, there is an increasing demand in finer wires. Therefore we have developed alternative materials the meet the special demands in these dimensions. These materila allow to achieve a much higher stiffness of the brush - in particular for wire diameters < 0,25 mm - as well as higher durability (for any diameter) can be achieved.
For this purpose we have been offering material 1.4310 HT for many years. Since 2006 many of our customers have been using this with a constantly growing demand.
Most superior properties to meet highest demands regarding stiffness and durability can be achieved with alloy 17-15. Furthermore, due to mechanical properties (elongation) machinability is most favourable for manufacturing process.
