Efficiency and production are the target for the new Purdy Chinex Elite brush series, coming out in several models including the Glide, Bow, Sprig and Swan. Users can choose between angled or flat in 2”, 2.5” and 3” with different handle style options. All models have stainless steel ferrules.
The Elite series features Dupont Chinex filaments with pre-flagged bristles which hold more paint and leave fewer brush marks in the finish, getting painters to a better finish faster. These bristles are designed to pick up and release both interior and exterior paints easily. Chinex Elite brushes are very easy to clean up at the end of a painting session.
