PP bristles, primarily used in hotels or cheap toothbrushes, usually the bristle will fall down after use 1 or 2 times.
2. PA (nylon, DuPont bristle) Bristles
2.1 Ordinary Nylon Bristles
Ordinary nylon bristles wire costs less than 2/3 of the price of DuPont bristle (610).
However, it is poor toughness, and the bristles will be badly deformed within a month.
Our factory never uses ordinary bristles and does not make low-quality toothbrush heads even if we lose orders.
2.2 Dupont Bristles
The top and bottom of Dupont bristle(610) are the same thick and rounded at the top; it has characteristics of abrasion resistance, toughness and cleaning power.
It is representative of high-quality nylon filaments, and many electric toothbrushes on the market use it.
The Dupont Tynex bristle(612) is more high-end than the Dupont bristle(610), with better performance and higher prices.
If you want to use a higher variety of Dupont Tynex (612) bristles this is also possible.
