Wooster Brush Company
The Wooster Brush Company was established in 1851 and is one of the oldest manufacturers of paint applicators in the USA. The company founder Adam Foss set up shop in Wooster, Ohio the same city of their company headquarters today. Wooster has continued the tradition of ground-breaking development and today is known as the top applicator innovator. Some of the most popular brands of painting equipment on the market are made by The Wooster Brush Company. Each year, we design more new products than any other high-quality applicator manufacturer. The right brush can help you overcome problem surfaces, adverse conditions, or both. Wooster paint brushes utilize the best China bristle, exclusive synthetic filaments, unique blends, durable ferrules, as well as handles that provide good comfort and balance. They scour the globe for the best materials, and when those won’t do we sometimes even create our own. The most important part of a paintbrush is the working end. Performance is based on the engineering of the filament (how it is finished or tipped); it affects the feel of the brush and the results you get. Look at a brush edgewise. If it comes to a point, it has taper and will provide more control. Tapered filament helps paint flow for better coverage. It “pumps the paint” out to the surface and improves cutting-in. Untapered or level filament may reduce the price of the brush, but it also sacrifices capacity, coverage and control.
Not all fibers are created equal. With roller covers, like any textile item, the quality level of the chosen fiber ends up dictating the richness of the fabric being produced. Wooster works closely with their fabric suppliers to choose and then modify fibers to ensure that they hold and release coatings better than competitive covers. Made at their headquarters in Ohio, Wooster rollers covers are closely monitored for consistent quality. Their professional rollers are manufactured on a 2-ply polypropylene core that resists water, solvents, and cracking. The multiple steps to finishing a roller cover include: fluffing up fibers, trimming off excess, beveling the ends, and vacuuming loose fibers. How well these processes are completed can dictate how well a cover paints. Inferior fabrics, those with lower-quality fibers, can be damaged during professional-level finishing process. Wooster takes pride in the exceptional performance results of our unique fabrics and proprietary finishing methods. For smoother lint-free results with all paints, use a woven roller fabric—especially with higher-sheen coatings. For greater pickup and release (faster application), try a knitted fabric. Match the fabric to the job.
