Here are some tips on how to choose a paint roller brush.
How to Choose a Paint Roller Brush?
As construction is commonly used in the paint roller brush, we must consider its size, bristles, water absorption effect and other factors according to the specific construction when buying a paint roller brush to ensure that it can be used freely.
Size: Roller brush size a variety of standard roller brush length sizes including 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 inches, an inch about 2.54cm; large area construction can choose more than 7 inches of roller brush, 6 inches below the roller brush for small area construction and corners, narrow area construction, so we have to choose the right size of roller brush according to their actual needs.
Bristles: For bristles of different lengths, the effect of painting the wall is different, and even poor quality roller brushes will also appear bristles fall off, so be sure to choose the suitable bristles according to the desired effect and the actual situation.
Sponging effect: The roller brush’s sponging effect directly affects the amount of paint, so in the choice of roller brush to see how its absorbent effect is, it is best to choose a slightly less absorbent.
Plush is the key to choosing the quality of the hair roller brush, and the density and purity of the plush affect the quality.
Density: Plush density is high, more than 950 grams per square meter, dip paint volume, large painting area, plush solid, not easy to lose hair, not an open line, that is, the quality of roller brush. The pile density is below 700 grams per square meter, and the pile is loose and easy to fall off, that is, the low-grade roller brush.
Purity: 100% acrylic, good quality, good paint; the price is relatively high and contains a certain percentage of the polyester plush price is relatively cheap, but the quality could be better.
Long service life and good usage are the advantages of good quality roller brush head plush. Therefore, the plush determines 60% of the cost of a roller brush.
