DuPont offers new filaments to help boost toothbrush sales

Du Pont Engineering Polymers : 19 June, 2001  (New Product)
Two recent additions to the palette of DuPont Tynex filaments give toothbrush manufacturers more ways to tailor brush performance to consumer preferences and perception. New Tynex filaments with DuPont Teflon brand fluoropolymer glide easily into hard-to-reach areas between teeth. Tiny particles of Teflon PTFE, one of the slipperiest materials known, are integrated into the nylon filament's physical structure. In toothbrush testing conducted by a leading dental research center Tynex with Teflon delivered a 9 percent increase in interproximal access efficacy compared with standard round filaments.

New Tynex filaments with DuPont Teflon brand fluoropolymer glide easily into hard-to-reach areas between teeth. Tiny particles of Teflon PTFE, one of the slipperiest materials known, are integrated into the nylon filament's physical structure.

In toothbrush testing conducted by a leading dental research center Tynex with Teflon delivered a 9 percent increase in interproximal access efficacy compared with standard round filaments.

These filaments are available in fine gauges for interdental specialty brushes and larger diameters for conventional toothbrushes. Available sizes range from 2 to 10 mil (0.051 to 0.254 mm).

Tynex filaments with Teflon have a distinctive soft white appearance. Opaque custom colors are also available.

The other new filament entry from DuPont, Embossed Tynex, plays to the consumer's perception of what makes an effective scrubbing agent. Each filament is embossed along its length with a regular pattern of tiny protrusions on one side and indentations on the opposite side. The bumps provide help in scrubbing while the hollows help carry toothpaste to the teeth and gums.

Embossed Tynex filaments have a sparkling appearance, too. That attracts shopper attention and distinguishes them from other toothbrush filaments. Natural and translucent colors are available.
