CONTINUOUSLY TAPERED

Discover what makes them the best paintbrush fibers

WHY CONTINUOUSLY TAPERED

Remarkably change the way paintbrushes perform.

Continuously tapered fibers continually narrow down from butt to tip. As a result, the voids created between adjacent fibers are incomparable in achieving the best capillary action. A very high paint pickup reduces the number of times a painter must reload the brush. As paint manufacturers decrease VOCs to weight, paint is getting increasingly thicker. Inter-fiber voids achieved with continuously tapered fibers are indispensable for creating paintbrushes that excel in different paint viscosities.

Discover Our Product Range

POLYMERS

Continuously tapered fibers can be extruded from either Polyester or Nylon. Polyester is stiffer while Nylon is softer. Nylon is also more resistant to abrasion. Polyester has a broader spectrum of chemical resistance to paint solvents & is better at retaining wet stiffness.

CROSS SECTIONS

Nexstar has a wide range of cross-sections that make it easier for paintbrush manufacturers to balance the technical and commercial objectives.

TAPER RATIOS

Fibers are available in all conventional lengths from 51 to 140mm in three taper ratios 9/5, 12/08 and 15/10 mils. Customization of lengths and taper ratios within technology limitations is also possible.

GLOSS

Glossy and matt finishes are available in all colors. Full matt is available on black.

M-Cell

®

M-Cell technology has taken years to be developed and commercialized. Through this tech, fibers can be embedded with a variety of micro materials to deliver unique functionalities. For instance, friction may be reduced by using fluoropolymers and improving paint release. Surfaces can be sculpted to pick up more paint.
