The world's most popular size brush now comes in three new filament blends and a thick new shape that allows painters to bring more paint to each stroke, according to Wooster Brush.

The Ohio manufacturer has introduced 2½-inch semioval angle sash style brushes in three of the company's best-selling filament blends.

Wooster says the design of its new semioval angle sash is nearly twice as thick as conventional angle sash brushes. The extra thickness creates a larger internal reservoir for carrying more paint to the surface, according to Wooster.

Wooster Brush

Wooster Brush has three models of its 2½-inch semioval angle sash style brush.

The brush offers similar cut-in control to traditional angled brushes, without needing to spend as much time reloading, Wooster Brush says.

3 Models

The new line comes in three models:

The Alpha 4243 ($29.99) features Wooster's patented Micro Tip filaments, which are designed to deliver a professional finish. Alpha provides a 30 percent increase in production over other brushes of equal size, according to Wooster.

The new Chinex FTP 4416 ($32.99) has added stiffness and a fuller, softer tip to deliver a precise stroke with less drag. FTP also offers cleanability and durability, the manufacturer reports.

The blend of white and silver CT polyester in Silver Tip 5226  ($18.99) is designed to virtually eliminate brushmarks; the thin, flexible ends provide leveling and smoothing at a lower price.   

The brushes are available at traditional paint and decorating centers, hardware stores, and paint sundry distributors or retailers.

At that price point, the Alpha and the FTP better be darn good brushes to compete with the Picasso and The Fox brushes that are much more affordable.
