Improve Product Quality

Unlike traditional brushware, where bristle bundles are drilled and stapled to the brush head, UST bristles are individually molded to the head, reducing the risk of product contamination.

  • It takes 52% more force to loosen a UST bristle than bristles on a traditional brush.
  • If a bristle is pulled from its position, it doesn’t affect the remaining bristles.
  • Bristle fixation is 3x more consistent in UST brushes than in drilled and stapled ones.
