Our  Brushes

The Awash standard brush is polyethelene. Each strand is 0.6mm; the finer the brush, the better its ability to clean fine crevasses. The cruciform shape of the strand allows a bead of soap and bead of water to sit in the crevasse for lubricity.

Maintaining the brushes is important

Polyethelene brushes last 10,000 to 15,000 washes or 5 years; once the cruciform wears out, the strand loses lubricity. A simple test of brush replacement is to measure existing from shaft to ends. A new brush is 16” long. Flagged ends offer a better finish for the final clean. Short brushes cause strain & stress on the motor or gearbox, leading to possible burn-out.

How do you know its time for a new brush?

The stands on a new brush will measure 16 inches.
The strands on a new brush will have flagged ends.
A worn brush may have flat ends on the strands.
A worn brush may also have curled ends on the strands.
