The shoe brush is a tool, which is usually used to clean shoes, or assist in polishing leather shoes with shoe polish. The shoe brush handle is usually made of wood, bamboo or plastic, and the shoe brush silk is usually PP silk, horsehair, pighair or mixed hair. There are many kinds of shoe brushes. How to customize a suitable shoe brush for shoes of different materials? Let's have a look.

Difference of shoe brush handle

Wood: The wooden brush handle has a variety of wood to choose from, including lotus, beech, miscellaneous wood, etc. The molding of wooden handle is more affordable than plastic handle, and high-quality wooden handle looks high-end, so it is often favored by high-end shoe stores and luxury shoe care stores. Wuxi Hongyu Company, a Chinese shoe care products factory, provides customers with the service of printing or laser logo on wooden handle, and provides customers with a variety of customized options.

Bamboo: bamboo brush handle is also convenient for processing. The disadvantage is that it is not resistant to moisture and easy to mildew.

Plastic: Compared with wood, plastic brush handle is more resistant to acid and alkali corrosion, and is not easy to mildew and stain by shoe polish. Wuxi Hongyu Company, a manufacturer of Chinese shoe care products, owns multiple injection molding machines and provides customers with mold opening and customization services, from the first step of shoe brush production.

Difference of shoe brush silk

PP silk: PP silk is made of plastic PP, with hard touch, low cost and corrosion resistance to acid and alkali, so it is widely used. PP silk hardly absorbs water and does not react with most chemicals. The disadvantage is that it will become brittle at low temperature, and it is not wear-resistant and easy to age.

Horse-mane hair: Horse-mane hair is the mane or tail hair of an automatic horse. Horse-mane hair feels soft and elastic. It is often used with wooden brush handles to make high-grade shoe brushes for soft leather shoes.

Bristle hair: bristle hair is more than 5cm long from the neck and back of the automatic pig. The bristle hair feels moderately soft and hard, the hair is elastic and not easy to deform, and is not easy to be affected by cold and heat. It is the main raw material of industrial and military shoe brushes.

Wuxi Hongyu Company, the manufacturer of Chinese shoe care products, strictly controls the source of animal hair shoe brush silk, and strictly controls the quarantine and disinfection certificate of products, so as to produce high-quality shoe brushes with confidence for customers.
