1. Sili-Brush – Silicone Glue Brush (1″ Tip)

Product Feature:

  • We’ve all used those pesky and irritating horse hair acid glue brushes to apply white school glue or yellow wood glue only to find out the bristles don’t hold very well and the glue coverage is minimal. Not only that, we tend to keep buying more and more and more of these brushes just to use them once and throw them away.
  • Introducing the Sili Brush! This silicone glue brush allows you to apply yellow wood or white school glue quickly and easily with the SILI Brush non-stick glue brush. The SILI Brush is designed to be used over and over again without having to purchase extra brushes like you would with typical tin acid or flux applicator brushes. The silicone bristles make applying glue and cleaning up the brush a breeze.
  • Once you finish applying glue, simply rinse the brush head off with warm soap and water and you are ready to re-use the SILI Brush again after it dries. Another way to clean the Sili brush is to let the glue dry overnight on the brush tip and then peel the glue right off without damaging the brush. It’s perfect for when we are in a rush or simply just forget to clean the brush. No more throwing away brushes and no more buying huge multipacks.
  • The handle features a comfortable grip shape for extended periods of use and it also features a flat paddle end with a built-in rest. The paddle is perfect for applying small amounts of glue to smaller areas like wood dovetail or box joints. The rest on the paddle end allows the brush to be set down without touching your table top surface.
  • This revolutionary brush makes the glue-up projects fun and enjoyable without the mess. Use the Sili brush over and over again without having to purchase new brushes. The Sili brush tip is made from silicone rubber for easy clean-up. The tip is also angled just right for optimal glue application regardless of the project.

Second, each brush has a matching rigid profile on the opposite end of the handle. The rigid end is perfect for scraping or removing excess glue.

With three unique profiles, you’ll be able to work glue into almost any tight space. The pack includes a fine tip brush, a chiseled tip brush, and a flat tapered tip brush. The brushes are very easy to clean. You can run the flexible tip or rigid tip under warm soapy water or you can simply let the glue dry and peel the glue right off!

7. Sili Stick Dual Profile Brush Pack

Product Feature:

  • When you need to apply glue in small areas like dowel holes, biscuit slots, model builds, arts and crafts or anywhere that is hard to reach, we typically will improvise and grab a cotton swab, or even worse yet, we use our fingertip. While there are other glue applicators available, none of them work quite like or nearly as well for small glue-ups like the Sili Glue Sticks. This pack includes 2 Sili Glue Sticks.
  • The Sili Glue Sticks are made with dual profile tips on each brush. The flexible, silicone rubber tapered or dowel tip end is perfect for applying glue into small holes. This tip is not only tapered for easily fitting into the hole, but it is ribbed so the glue doesn’t drip off so easily. This makes it perfect for applying your glue exactly where you want it to go.
  • The opposite end is a flat, chisel-style end that is also made from silicone rubber and is flexible enough to help apply glue with just the right amount of touch and finesse when needed. This end works great for slightly larger areas and is especially useful for working glue into wood biscuit slots for wood biscuit joinery.
  • Each Sili Stick has an ergonomically designed handle that fits comfortably into your hand. Imagine holding a standard No. 2 pencil. That’s pretty much how the Sili Stick feels in your hand. This gives you complete control over how and where you apply your glue. This makes it perfect for all kinds of projects in all types of hobby, woodworking, and arts and crafts categories.
  • As with all of our Sili products, the Sili Sticks are made out of silicone rubber. This makes the Sili Sticks very easy to clean and get ready for your next project. The Sili Sticks can be cleaned in two basic ways: 1. Run the brush tips under warm water and work the excess glue off until it’s clean. 2. Let the glue dry. Crack the glue by bending the tip and peel the glue right off! Either way works and either way gets you ready for your next glue-up!
