Insulectro, the largest distributor of materials for use in the printed circuit board and printed electronics industries, has announced it will distribute IBC printed circuit board pumice and deburr scrubber brushes effective immediately.
“Today we are announcing Insulectro will begin distributing Industrial Brush Corporation brush products in North America,” Insulectro Director of Product Management Michelle Walsh commented, “The addition of IBC is a welcome complement to our best-in-class product portfolio.”
“We are excited to broaden our product offerings to our PCB fabricators,” said Kevin Barrett, Insulectro Technical Account Manager and Product Manager for the IBC line, “IBC is a pioneer in brush manufacture serving a wide variety of industries with roots dating back to 1896. At IBC, brushes are not simply a commodity manufactured by a machine. They are an art form that has been perfected over time by highly-skilled employees, some of whom have been with the company for twenty to thirty years or more.”
IBC circuit board brushes feature optimal aluminum, galvanized and stainless steel construction for maximum durability. The spiral-wound design permanently locks brush filaments into a channel to prevent filament loss. Brushes are precision trimmed to maintain uniform surface finishes. To meet the increasing surface preparation requirements of the PCB industry, IBC also offers the complete range of impregnated nylon filament in grit sizes from 180 to 500.
Their pumice scrubber brushes are manufactured with precision-trimmed, fine-diameter nylon filament to ensure even and consistent brushing action. For fine line circuitry, optimum surface preparation can be achieved even on thin inner layers.
“Expect to hear more from us about IBC and its high-quality line of industrial brushes,” Michelle Walsh concluded, “Expanding our world-class product line card is just another example of Insulectro’s pledge to enable its customers to build better circuits faster.”

Electronics are continually evolving, driven by innovations in printed circuit board technology. Flexible PCBs have emerged as a revolutionary force, reshaping the PCB industry and influencing the design and functionality of countless electronic devices. Some believe that flexible PCBs are a relatively newer technology, but as we will see, that is not true. Since I’m an instructor, here’s a short history lesson on how we got here and what we can expect.
