Picking the Right Brush: Tips from Your Local Industrial Brush Suppliers
As designers, manufacturers, and industrial brush suppliers, the team at Busy Bee Brushware know better than anyone how overwhelming choosing the right brush can be. Whether you’re using it for cleaning, manufacturing, or construction, your job calls for a specific kind of industrial brushware. With 35 years of experience as industrial brush manufacturers, Busy Bee Brushware has learned a thing or two about selecting the ideal industrial brushes for your job. Here are a few tips on choosing the perfect brush for your project.
Choosing the Right Size
Our industrial brushes come in all shapes and sizes, so you must understand how big you need your brush to be. If you need a particular custom length, Busy Bee Brushware is your go-to brush supplier. We specialise in providing premium-quality custom orders delivered to you in no time at all. When thinking about your brush, make sure to consider;
- Length. If you’re buying a tube brush, the length encompasses the head of the brush down to the end of the handle. If you’re purchasing an industrial brush strip, it will mean the length of the brush itself.
- Diameter/width. Depending on your application, you may require a tube brush, industrial roller brushes, or spray suppressant strips. Each of these brushes has a specific width or diameter that will affect the application of the brushes.
- Shape. Are you after a cylindrical brush? Or perhaps a round brush? The body of your industrial brushes will all depend upon their intended use, so make sure you know what your job requires.
- Attachments. Some brushes will be simple, handheld designs using wooden, plastic, or metal handles. Other times, however, the brush is designed to be attached to a machine, vehicle, or door. You need to ensure the attachments you have are appropriate for the brush’s intended use.
Choosing the Right Bristles
Some brush bristles are gentler than others, so pick your bristles based on the job for which you need industrial brushes. Busy Bee Brushware, your local industrial brush suppliers, have a vast range of bristle types available, so you’re spoilt for choice.
- Metal brushes: Brass, steel, and copper are all included under metal brushes. These brushes are for scouring or burnishing.
- Synthetic brushes: Normally used in household and commercial cleaning, synthetic brushes are often made from plastics, nylon, or polypropylene.
- Natural fibre brushes: Organic fibre brushes are typically for the cleaning of very sensitive areas, such as computer towers and electrical parts. They’re often made of horsehair, Tampico, baffine, or other organic materials.
Choosing the Right Functionality
Industrial brushes are surprisingly versatile, so if you let the team at Busy Bee Brushware know what you’re trying to accomplish, we’ll be able to help you find the ideal brush. We have brushes to cater for a massive range of jobs, including:
- Metal finishing
- Defusing (not why this is included)

Wire Tube Brush
The Do’s And Don’ts of Wire Tube Brushes
Busy Bee Brushware has been supplying wire tube brushes to homeowners and businesses around Australia for over 35 years. In that time, we’ve learned a lot about the versatility of the wire tube brush, and we’ve become specialists in the design, manufacture, and sales of the handy little brushes. That’s why we decided to develop a handy little guide to help you select the best wire tube brush for you.
The Uses of Wire Tube Brushes
We make wire brushes from a variety of metals, including steel, brass, tin, copper, and bronze. Here are a few handy applications of wire brushes.
- Steel wire: These brushes tend to be quite aggressive and are ideal for heavy-duty brushing applications. Busy Bee Brushware recommends steel wire tube brushes if you need to do any deburring or cutting. Stainless steel is a popular choice in Australia, as the metal fair pretty well in our temperamental weather conditions.
- Brass wire: Brass is a bit gentler than steel, but is still great for industrial applications. They’re perfect for cleaning, applying satin finishes, and reducing static. Brass wire tube brushes are popular because they are corrosion-resistant.
- Tin wire: People typically purchase tin wire brushes for deburring and decarbonising applications. (this one needs to be stainless steel wire)
When to Avoid Using Wire Brushes
It’s important to remember that a wire tube brush is an abrasive brush. They are designed for cutting, cleaning, deburring, grinding, and finishing, so there are quite a few instances in which you should avoid using a wire brush.
- If you’re not wearing PPE. Wire brushes can be sharp, so gloves and other appropriate PPE should be worn when handling them. Even if wire tube brushes aren’t being used to cut or grind, like in the case of a bristle gutter guard, gloves should still be worn to prevent injury or accident. (could put in wire scratch guard)
- If you’re working with delicate materials. Depending on the metal, wire brushes have the potential to scratch or damage the material’s surface. Steer clear of glass, ceramics, and tile with most wire brushes.
