Brush Mate Trade 4+ Paint Brush Storage System

Brush Mate Trade 4+ paint brush storage system enables you to store up to 5 wet paint brushes used with traditional oil-based/alkyd coatings without cleaning them. Brushes can be stored for months, whilst the replaceable vapour pad remains active and wet. Size 300mm high x 105mm deep x 140mm wide.

  • Stores wet paint brushes instantly for any length of time.
  • Brushes ready for immediate use without cleaning.
  • Stores up to 5 paint brushes.
  • Brushes suspended in vapour, not liquid.
  • No bent bristles or rusty ferrules or fixings.
  • Prolongs brush life.

The special Brush Mate liquid evaporates from the vapour pad very slowly, producing a powerful heavier-than-air solvent vapour that fills the container. This vapour prevents the solvent evaporation and film formation of oil-based or alkyd paints and varnishes.

Under normal temperatures and useage a typical DIY user can expect that their Vapour Mate pad will last around 5 months, however professional painters and decorators who are opening their Brush Mate 4+ more frequently will find that the Vapour Mate pad needs replacing at much shorter intervals. We advise customers to always keep at least one spare Vapour Mate for when your current Vapour Mate needs replacing.

The Trade 4+ removes the need to clean your paint brushes unless changing colour, it also keeps your paint brushes in tip top condition; no rusting ferrules; no dry paint in the stock. Standing paint brushes in a container or paint kettle results in bent bristles, whilst frequent cleaning of brushes can reduce their effecive life.

The Trade 4+ is designed to be used with all conventional oil based paints and varnishes (i.e. all paints and varnishes which normally require brushes to be cleaned in white spirit/turps substitute). The Trade 4+ does NOT work with water based or acetone based paints (introducing water or water based paints into your Trade 4+ can cause irreversible damage).

The Trade 4+ can be used with all paint brushes except those with copper or brass ferrules or rivets which will corrode when in contact with the fluid vapour. Sometimes the covering of the handle may be slightly softened by exposure to the fluid vapour - choosing brushes with bare wooden handles avoids this inconvenience.

The Brush Mate Trade 4+ box comes complete with paint brush clips and a vapour mate pad.
