The Best Brushes for Heavy Duty Wash machines

Born with the first automatic washing systems, the traditional bristles made of polyethylene bristles, or other synthetic materials, remain the ideal solution in the truck and bus washing sector and for train washing systems.

What makes Favagrossa Traditional Bristles unique ?


Favagrossa directly extrudes its yarns, using only the highest quality raw materials (PE, PP, PA, FAVAFIL). This allows the company to have full control over the quality of the product, from the raw material to the finished product.


Favagrossa traditional brushes are made with high density bristles (50% more bristles than normal brushes on the market) and each hole has exactly the same number of bristles. This allows a perfect balance of the brush and ensures high reliability over time.


Favagrossa traditional brushes are characterized by the exclusive “feathering” process which makes the terminal part of the bristles extremely soft and delicate.

Quality Backings

Favagrossa plastic belts boast an exclusive patented design, which together with a solid structure guarantee a perfect seal of the brush over time. All Favagrossa brush supports are produced directly by the company in the headquarters dedicated to injection molding.

Hand Sewn

The Favagrossa traditional brushes are all hand-sewn by a team of expert operators, this ensures the craftsmanship quality that has distinguished these bristles for over 50 years.

Shafts and Flanges

Favagrossa also manufactures ad hoc support and connection systems. Pipes, pivots and flanges are made to measure according to the customer’s requests.

Unmatchable performance

High washing power

Exceptional cleaning power and reliability are the secrets that distinguish Favagrossa traditional brushes.

Polyethylene(PE), Polypropylene (PP), Nylon (PA) and FAVAFIL offer different performances to satisfy even the most demanding operators

Extremely Gentle

The bristles of the Favagrossa traditional brushes are subjected to an exclusive “feathering” process that makes the terminal part of the bristles soft and delicate. A technological plus for unique and inimitable brushes.

Highest Quality

Favagrossa is synonymous with certified quality. Wear, washing force, resistance, reliability of the brushes are continuously tested in the company’s laboratory and directly in the field (in the photo test performed on a high-speed train in Japan).

Fibers in PE, PP, PA and FAVAFIL offer extremely different performances and that is why Favagrossa offers a complete support service for the development custom brushes in direct collaboration with the customer.

Circular Production

Favagrossa traditional brushes respect the environment. Favagrossa’s production uses clean energy produced by its solar panels, the brushes are produced with 100% recyclable materials and any processing waste is reworked and reinserted into the company’s production cycle.

Favagrossa Traditional Bristles, made from A to Z !

The entire production process is carried out within the company:from the extrusion of the bristles to the molding of the plastic backing, from the feathering of the fibers to the realization of the shafts, each step is carried out following strict protocols that ensure the high final quality of the product. Each brush is then checked and hand-sewn by a team of expert operators.


Brushes with differentiated length bristles that allow you to easily wash even vehicles with very accentuated edges or with very different shapes (such as tank trucks). The long bristles penetrate effectively into the inlets while the short ones (in yellow in the photo) make up the body of the brush and regulate its sinking and stability on the bodywork.


Color Range

Favagrossa traditional brushes are available in 12 colors and an infinite variety of combinations: single-color, sector, spiral chequered, vertical bands, are just some of the designs offered by the Favagrossa catalog.


Several brush models for your car wash brushes, find out your most suitable one and work out the perfect look for your system: from traditional cylindrical brushes to shaped versions, from basic colours to the most eccentric spiral models, from single-density brushes to different density, “zone” ones, Favagrossa offers a variety of solutions aimed at fulfilling the most demanding needs.


All the traditional brushes (PE, PP, PA, FAVAFIL) are hand sewn on model X and model F special backing. The modular band system, assembled on special aluminium profiled pipes, allows brushes fast assembly and ensures its perfect endurance. The brushes come in different shapes and sizes. They are perfectly suitable for any kind of system.


Thanks to their strong washing power, traditional brushes are particularly recommended for industrial washing (truck, bus, train wash, in tunnel, gantry or mono-brush equipment) where the square shapes of vehicles and the stubborn dirt make proper surface washing hard.

To reduce plastic sediment as typical of polyethylene fibres, more “refined” materials such as Polypropylene and Nylon can be used as they considerably reduce such risk. Moreover, for even better results, FAVAFIL is the brand new bristle, capable of combining smoothness, reliability and incredible washing power in just one product.

Traditional brushes can be installed on any type of gantry or tunnel system. Furthermore, as Favagrossa offers customized solutions, they can be produced in various densities, shapes and colors, to satisfy any type of request.

The brushes must be periodically cleaned with only specific chemical products (CLEANING LINE by Favagrossa), following recommended modalities and doses. In fact, regular use of low quality products can cause irreparable damages to the brushes, deforming them up to make them useless. In any case, the brushes should be plentifully rinsed with fresh water (no high pressure) before and after using chemical products for cleaning them.
