  • XL

    Popular PURDY® XL™ Series brushes offer a unique blend of Satin‑Edge nylon (dyed Tynex® nylon) and Orel® polyester filaments. XL™ brushes are highly recommended for both interior and exterior painting projects with all paints. The stiffness retention of XL™ brushes (from the polyester content) makes them especially high-performing for outside painting under hot and humid climate conditions. Only DuPont™ solid, round, tapered (SRT) Tynex® nylon and Orel® polyester filaments are used.
  • Pro-Extra

    PRO-EXTRA® the finest paintbrush ever made. The secret to PRO-EXTRA® excellence includes an artful mix of the following three premium filaments, which when blended expertly together provide unmatchable superior performance and handling:
    1. TYNEX® nylon for softness and ease of paint flow.
    2. CHINEX® for faster cleanup with self-flagging tip.
    3. OREL® polyester for consistent stiffness retention.
  • Elite

    Engineered with the highest quality Dupont solid, round, tapered Chinex and Orel polyester Purdy is proud to introduce a brush that has ultimate performance and versatility. With flagged and tipped filaments, XL Elite brushes perform well with all paints, especially high solid, low VOC paints and heavy-bodied latex coatings which can be difficult to apply smoothly. When the job is complete the premium filaments make clean up quick and easy.
  • Ox-Hair

    Ox-Hair is the softest, most supple natural animal hair used in PURDY® handcrafted brushes. Specially formulated and carefully blended with their softest White China bristle for just the right< amount of resiliency, these extraordinary painting instruments are perfect for ultra-fine enamel and varnish projects where an extremely smooth, exquisite finish is desired. Whether it’s fine artist work, enameling or staining of doors, fine smooth furniture, cabinetry or baseboards, nothing can match the mirror finish provided by these extra soft bristle brushes.
  • Black China

    The mainstay of the professional painter. Long recognized for its ability to hold and deliver more paint than any other material, Black China bristle reaches its ultimate potential in PURDY®handcrafted professional brushes. Only the world’s finest Black China bristle is selected. It is boiled under pressure for absolutely thorough cleaning and bristle straightening. Then varying bristle lengths and stiffnesses are formulated and blended, carefully avoiding reverse bristles which could cause dragging and streaking.
  • White China

    The standard of excellence in bristle. TheWhite China bristle brushes are equal in character and performance to traditional Black China bristle brushes, and excel at applying ultra-smooth finishes with the most challenging coatings. Using only the finest White China bristle available, PURDY® handcraftsmanship begins with thorough cleaning, builds with careful matching and mixing of bristle lengths, then ends with expert assembly to provide tools of unmatched painting performance.
  • ClearCut

    PURDY's first tipped-only, nylon polyester brush that provides superior cutting-in capability.

  • Nylox

    For interior use, NYLOX™ is the favorite brush of many professional painters. Its 100% dyed nylon from PURDY®, the first brush company to offer dyed nylon, is still the standard by which all others are measured. Only 100% solid, round, tapered (SRT) Tynex® nylon by DuPont™ is used.® Carefully tipped and flagged by craftspeople, their NYLOX™ filament provides greater abrasion resistance for increased wearability while its famous Satin‑Edge finish provides the excellent painting performance only found in such chiseled, handcrafted painting tools.
  • Syntox

    SYNTOX™ brushes provide all the benefits of natural Ox-Hair brushes and then some. They are 20% softer than the Ox-Hair Series and offer the added durability of DuPont™ solid, round, tapered synthetic filaments for a superior finish with a longer lasting brush. SYNTOX™ brushes are totally shed resistant and will last at least five times longer than Ox-Hair brushes. Even more importantly, the SYNTOX™ brushes can be used with both water and solvent‑based clear finishes.
  • Chinex

    Clearly superior. That’s the benchmark Purdy® sets for new products. In contractor field tests, painters raved about the “cleanability” of the Purdy® brush, which features 100% DuPont™ Chinex® filaments. Many expressed appreciation of the comfortable, flush-ferrule design, a Purdy® exclusive. Like natural bristle, Chinex® is self-flagging for optimal paint coverage. Yet, the filaments are stiff, so the brush holds its shape when applying today’s heavy-bodied paints.
