New Product Announcement: Short-Handled Brushes
Purdy, a painting application company for paint and decorating projects under the Sherwin-Williams Consumer Brands Group, has recently announced via emailed press release that its Cub brush line has expanded.
Adding two new lightweight, short-handled brushes, Purdy reports that the additions to the Cub line offer precise control and are ideal for painting in tight spaces. The brushes are available in 2-inch Pro-Extra and Chinex Elite and are noted to be made from alderwood.
The 2-inch Pro-Extra Cub Brush is handcrafted with a blend of longer filaments for extra holding capacity and lasting durability. This brush is ideal for projects with textured surfaces, such as drywall, brick and concrete. The 2-inch Chinex Elite brush is formulated with 100% Chinex nylon solid, round and tapered filaments designed for heavy-bodied and low-VOC paints. This brush is ideal for textured surfaces like stucco, lumber and brick work.
“Handcrafted by skilled Purdy brushmakers using high-quality materials, our lineup of Cub Brushes is aimed at helping both professional painters and experienced DIYers work efficiently in cramped spaces,” said Shelly Dalton, product manager, Purdy. “These brushes are lightweight and feature short, easy-to-grip handles that help ensure you can reach tight areas. The brushes’ filaments also provide the same quality coverage, sharp lines and smooth finish you expect from any Purdy brush.”
Both brushes are carefully tipped and flagged to hold more paint and provide an even release on a variety of rough indoor and outdoor surfaces. The new brushes are also designed to deliver precision and control, with the company noting that the short handles are easier to use compared to traditional size brushes when cutting corners or painting rough surfaces.
The new additions join Nylox, Clearcut and Clearcut Elite Cub brushes to complete the line and are available at select traditional and online retailers.
