What is an electrostatic flocking brush?

It is a brush in which short piles with threads cut into 0.5 mm to 3 mm are planted on the base material such as shafts and sheets. The cut pile is put into an electric field and fixed (flocked) to the base material via an adhesive.
Similar to the fabric brush, this brush enables low cost, small diameter, and space saving while controlling and stabilizing the brush resistance value.

Material: nylon, polyester
Fiber thickness: 0.5d~
Fiber length: 0.5mm-3mm
Electrical characteristics: insulation,
conductivity (controllable)

1 What is an electrostatic flocking brush?

Electrostatic flocking brush has advantages such as smaller diameter, uniform density, and lower cost. Utilizing those features
1) When you want to adopt a brush in a narrow space
2) When you want to eliminate the "spiral gap" that causes uneveness
3) When you want to reduce costs compared to conventional fabric brushes
You can use it in those situations above.

2 Features of TOEISANGYO flocking brush

Our electrostatic flocking brush not only has conductive properties, but also has excellent durability against fiber loss and stable pile density.
Due to these features, we have many achievements as parts for electrophotographic devices that require extremely high quality.

3 Advantages due to the difference in production process between electrostatic flocking brush and fabric brush

 Comparison of production process

Electrostatic flocking brush has a shorter production process than conventional fabric brushes, and most of the processes are automated.
In addition to shortening the manufacturing lead time, it is a product with good cost performance because it reduces material waste and man-hours.

4 Application example of electrostatic flocking brush

Charging brush

The cleanerless system, which is difficult with charged rubber rolls, is possible, contributing to process design with a small number of parts. In addition, there is no generation of image noise due to the "roll" that has been a problem with conventional fabric brushes.
It is possible to reduce the diameter to φ10 or less, making it ideal for compact and low-cost process design.

Charged RCL brush

It can be used for cleaning electrified rubber rolls. It can be installed in a small space due to its small diameter. A simple system that does not need to apply voltage and suppresses torque, and can remove toner and external additives. Charging RCL brush can contribute to the long life of the total charging process.

Sheet flocking brush

A sheet-shaped brush with flocked on a polyester film. It has conductivity and can apply voltage. It exhibits various functions such as electrification, static elimination and cleaning in a space smaller than that of a roll brush.

 Seamless tube brush image image

Seamless tube brush

A seamless cylindrical brush with electrostatically flocked polyester film.
Due to the elasticity of the film, the shape is flexible and has a restorability, and it can be manufactured with a small diameter (inner diameter about 6 to 50).
