- Perlon® Group
Not to be confused with multifilaments used for the manufacture of textiles, our range of non-abrasive and abrasive Multifil products is used in the manufacture of technical brushes and tools for the treatment of flat surfaces, made from all kinds of metal and glass.
What is a Multifil?
Multifil is an engineered bristle based on multiple extruded synthetic filaments inside the same bristle, wrapped and coated to ensure maximum stability and bending stiffness properties.
Our range consists of 8 non-abrasive products and 8 abrasive (Multibrasif®) products, from very soft to very stiff.
What are the benefits versus standard monofilaments?
Multifil bristles deliver more working filaments to the surface to be cleaned or processed which in turn results in a higher grinding efficiency, better cleaning capacity and a more homogenous surface finish.
Other advantages can include a reduction in filament breakage, high cleaning performance in oily and greasy environments, adding a capillary effect to the brush as well as longer lifetime.
A further advantage of the Multibrasif® abrasive range comes in the form of the hard wearing coating providing protection to brush making machinery from wear and tear.
Alkaline applications in the steel industry
A highlight of our range is MultiBil®. This Multifil version of our long-established Bilon® range offers an improvement in lifetime and cleaning performance for use in chemical washing sections using alkaline solutions. Other products which are resistant to acid attack on lines for stainless steel production are also available.
