We would like to introduce Artifex-Brush Control BV. We are a young company; we registered with the Chamber of Commerce on 11 May 2015. Our company’s goal is to invent and produce innovative, previously un-marketed products.
We expect our first product, the Stop-inn, to be available in all DIY and professional trade stores before the end of the year. We invented the Stop-inn in 2014 and after a long period of testing with various materials, arrived at a holder for storing your wet brushes in a simple and easy manner. As the brush remains soft and the paint fluid, the brush will be immediately ready to use the following day, or after two, five or even seven days. So for example, with water-based paints you no longer need to make absolutely certain all water has been removed from the brush to prevent drips in the first strokes. This is because the brush has been stored with sufficient paint in the head in the Stop-inn holder.
The advantages are numerous:
- No plastic bags required.
- No more wrapping in foil and keeping the brush in the fridge.
- No more pots of water stuffed with brushes.
- No more pots with white spirit, so no unpleasant odours either.
- No more gel in the brush, meaning you no longer need to spend time cleaning the brush.
Another major advantage is that fewer brushes used with water-based paints will be cleaned in sinks, reducing the amount of paint entering the groundwater via the sewage system.
The Stop-inn will only work if there is sufficient paint in the head of the brush and the zipper is firmly sealed. This can be done using thumb and forefinger, but even more securely using the slider which comes with the Stop-inn.
