Simpson Brush Measurements

Frequently questions come up about measurement statistics in regard to the Simpson brand brushes we carry. The informational chart below is to provide more detail about the individual brushes.

NOTICE: The specifics shown here are from our best estimates using precision calipers and rulers. Our conclusions may vary slightly from others doing similar measurements and from natural deviations inherent in natural or hand assembled products from batch to batch. Therefore use this as an estimate only and not as an absolute.

Further, brush shipments could have minor variations in shading, bristle length and other attributes based on badger hair available upon manufacture.

Measurements in mm (millimeters). For conversion programs check these resources:
