“The Softest Brush in the World”



One of our latest creations, SEA STAR is a brush conceived as an evolution of nowadays’ CARLITE® and its main features are lightness and softness. The unmistakable “star” shape gives it beyond undoubted esthetical gifts also important technical skills. The main concept is the soft caress guaranteed by the tapered shape of the strands thanks to which this brush coddles the cars.


Come into the world after careful studies on the structure of the foam flags and on their dynamics while washing, SEA STAR was developed aiming at the concept of decreasing the mass in contact with the car body. In order to achieve this we have lightened the end part of the strand by a tapering process, strengthening at the same time the structure with specifically studied sleeves (foam flags with no strands). Such a structure is obtained overlapping the bent half flags in order to get small back-up sleeves at the basis of the bigger ones .These small back-up sleeves are offering a bigger rigidity in the central part guaranteeing an always straight and regular shape and so increasing the wash power. Furthermore, thanks for the CARLITE® material, it has a cell foam structure and it does not transfer on or tarnish paintwork, keeping the original brightness.


The SEA STAR brushes are mounted on the patented system of the UNICA. The flags, fixed on a central plastic support, have a back up shorter sleeve offering a better efficiency and a regular shape during the washing. This is very important above all for the horizontal brushes, where the classic brushes sewed on the traditional backing cannot guarantee a perfect amperage control on the engines.
