About this deal
Prodec Advance Ice Fusion Synthetic Paint Brush is a new synthetic paint brush with hand formed chisel tip, and unfinished beavertail hardwood handle. A good general purpose professional paint brush for cutting in and trim work. A new 'shard' tapered SRT filament is claimed to hold and release the paint from the brush more evenly for longer strokes, for greater productivity.
You’ll also find the perfect angled paint brush or cutting in brush to help you achieve a true straight edge between your walls, ceilings and skirting board.Each element of the brush was designed with the professional decorator in mind. From the tapered Shard filaments to the seamless ferrule, Ice Fusion Paint Brushes have made an impression on decorators across the nation.
Firstly, the oval shape gives better cutting in lines: the head shape tapering at each end to a finer point than flat brushes gives noticeably more precision and control. One of those styles is the Oval Ice Fusion Paint Brush, which is surely a candidate for the best-looking brush on the market: the seamless ferrule combined with the oval curvature makes it quite the object of beauty. Of course, we didn’t add the oval brush to the range to win a beauty contest – there are much more practical reasons. Oval brushes are preferred by some decorators and, once converted, they become very loyal to the oval shape – we’ve had a few long conversations on the subject with pros who test products for us. Form Recovery Technology gives an ultra-sharp cutting line and maintains the brush's shape after washingTraditionally bristle brushes were, and are still, used for the application of oil-based paints like gloss because of how the natural bristle (hog hair) carried and laid off oily paint. It is only in the last decade that the technology in making synthetic filaments has come on sufficiently to make a satisfactorily performing synthetic brush for use in oil-based paint.
Cutting in” is the stage of painting where the edges (between 1” to 3” inwards) of a wall are painted first (so you can then roll close to the edge without worrying about bumping the adjacent surface (such as the ceiling) with the roller. Secondly, oval paint brushes are masters of all types of surface, not just regular flat surfaces. Contoured and irregular shapes such as skirting, architrave and mouldings are easier to cover when using an oval brush. The oval profile of the brush filaments allows the brush to mould to the profile of a surface better than a rectangular brush, giving fewer missed spots and requiring fewer strokes. Cutting in brushes are subsequently designed to make the application of paint to these areas easier by either having a conical design (sometimes called a “sash” brush) or angled for more precise application along edges. Sash brushes are a more traditional design and take slightly more skill to use efficiently compared to an angled brushThe new Oval Brushes come with the Ice Fusion features that made the original range so popular. These include our secret synthetic filaments with their Shard tapering, Form Recovery Technology for razor-sharp cutting lines and seamless ferule.
