Kitchen Brushes: An explanation of types

Polyester: A superior synthetic fill that offers long life and great durability because it is immune to most common chemicals. It can also be used near moderately high temperatures and provides excellent resistance to abrasion.
Tynex Nylon: An upgrade from Polyester bristles. Tynex offers better memory and will hold up longer than Polyester.
Nylon: Great durability and bend recovery. Works well with most chemicals. Has long life because of its abrasive resistance.
Boar: An animal fiber that is relatively scarce and very expensive. Each strand of bristle has a natural taper from the flesh end to the tip. The tip end of each bristle is naturally split into two or more branches making it ideal for pastry/basting brushes. It has excellent durability and water resistance. Sterilized.
