All global manufacturers use different materials for combs, and these are: Rubber, nylon, ebonite, carbon, acrylic, plastic, silicone, metal, natural bristle, wood, bone or horn. These are the materials we’ll talk about. And for those who are too lazy to read a rather lengthy article, I have prepared a detailed table that will help to understand the materials in more detail and compare them in a more convenient form (it is better to look from a computer monitor. If from a phone, it is better in a horizontal position).

Synthetic rubber

There are about 20 of its varieties. For the production of rubbers, butadiene, isoprene, styrene, chloroprene, isobutene, ethylene, acrylonitrile, etc. are used. Synthetic rubbers are obtained in production by polymerizing isoprene in the presence of catalysts – metallic lithium and peroxide compounds. Ethylene propylene rubbers (one example of synthetic rubbers) are synthetic elastomers.

  • Softening point: when heated above 140 ° C, a preliminary change in the shape of the tool may occur.
  • Chemical resistance:resistant to some aggressive environments. It dissolves in many hydrocarbons and their chlorine derivatives.
  • Anti-static: good.
  • Disinfection chem. solution: possible.
  • Treatment in ultraviolet rays of the sterilizer: possible.

Recommendation:When using a synthetic rubber brush, remember that the brush cannot withstand temperatures above 140 ° C and must not be forgotten. The tool can be used by both a professional and a novice master. The comb will not harm your hair and skin.

Nylon

This synthetic material is mainly used in the production of artificial fibers. Softening point: when heated to 100-120 ° C nylon undergoes thermal oxidative degradation (destruction). Destruction is accelerated by exposure to ultraviolet radiation.

  • Chemical resistance: does not dissolve in most organic solvents, does not lend itself to weak solutions of acids, alkalis and salt water.
  • Anti-static: accumulates statics.
  • Disinfection chem. solution:possible.

Recommendation:The comb must not be heated above 120 ° C. (a professional hair dryer heats the air to a temperature of 120-130 ° C) Tools made of this material are best used at home.

Ebonite

It is a highly vulcanized rubber with a high sulfur content (30-50% based on the weight of the rubber), usually dark brown or black in color.

  • Physical property:ebonite does not show high elasticity. At room temperature, it resembles hard plastic.
  • Softening point: becomes highly elastic at 55-100 ° C.
  • Chemical resistance:destroyed by strong oxidants, aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Oxidizes in bright light, acquiring a greenish tint.
  • Anti-static: accumulates statics.
  • Disinfection chem. solution: possible.
  • Treatment in ultraviolet rays of the sterilizer: possible.

Recommendation: When using an ebonite comb, it must be remembered that the comb does not withstand high temperatures from a hair dryer and straightening tongs. Ebonite hairbrush does not withstand chemical solutions, destruction of the structure of the material will occur. It is not advisable for professionals to use such a comb.

Carbon (CFRP)

Polymeric composite materials made of interwoven strands of carbon fiber located in a matrix of polymer (eg epoxy) resins.

  • Properties: Carbon fiber, resistant to aggressive chemical environments.
  • Softening point: The maximum operating temperature in the air is 300-350 ° C (the temperature of the hot air from the hair dryer is 120-130 ° C).
  • Density: from 1450 kg / m³ to 2000 kg / m³
  • Chemical resistance: due to its high chemical resistance, carbon fiber is used for filtering aggressive media.
  • Anti-static: high.
  • Disinfection chem. solution: possible.
  • Treatment in ultraviolet rays of the sterilizer: possible.

Recommendation:Combs made of environmentally friendly material are convenient and profitable to use for both a professional and a novice master. It can withstand high temperatures, mechanical stress, and all disinfectant solutions. Such a tool will last a long time. The comb will not harm your hair and skin.

Acrylic

Eco-friendly, lightweight, flexible and very durable material. By changing the reagents and molding methods, you can get the product either solid and transparent, or soft and elastic, or liquid. Raw materials for acrylic production are extracted from natural gas.

Plastics

Thirteen types of plastics are known. There are hard, semi-hard and soft. Most plastics have fillers that carry the potential hazard of releasing toxic substances associated with the technology of its production and its composition, for example, PVC releases carcinogens, as well as lead. When exposed to heat, it releases dioxins: one of the most dangerous pollutants and toxins. Polystyrene – emits the most dangerous poison and carcinogen styrene. The toxicity of plastics depends not only on the toxicity of the polymers themselves, but also on the toxicity of those components that are included in the plastics (stabilizers, plasticizers, dyes).

  • Softening point: the change in the shape of the instrument can start from 60 ° C.
  • Density: plastics are characterized by low density (0.85-1.8 g / cm³)

Recommendation:It is not advisable to use such a comb in a professional and home environment, because the instrument accumulates static, can oxidize after sterilization in a chemical. solution, can harm hair due to poor processing of the teeth of the comb.

Natural boar bristles

The best bristles are plucked from the ridge of the pig: this is the ridge ridge, then comes the first, lateral and oches. Sheared bristles are valued less jerky. In the production of a comb, the bristles are treated from the epidermis, sulfanilic acid. For the base of the comb, manufacturers use materials such as wood, plastic, sometimes bone. Bristles are thicker, denser and harder mammalian hair that does not differ in its histological structure from ordinary hair.
