The soft fibre of this brush is impregnated with the Vale Brothers KBF99 additive which gives it bacteria and fungus killing properties, thereby assisting in the prevention of infection and reinfection of various diseases such as strangles, ringworm, E.coli, and mycotoxin. Ergonomically designed to be comfortable for the groom and with smooth lines and a soft textured outer casing it is as appealing to the touch as it is to the eyes.
- The reduction of harmful bacteria and fungus in the stable environment helps to reduce the chance of diseases being transmitted from horse to horse.
- KBF99 coats the surface of plastic with molecular strands (tiny spikes or swords) and is rich in Nitrogen molecules that carry a positive charge. These attract the negatively charged membranes of Bacteria, Fungi, Algae and Mycotoxins. The spikes rupture the membrane, killing the cell, which is then blown apart.
These brushes were originally produced with an expiry date – following further trials, they discovered that the properties didn’t deteriorate, and as such no longer have dates on them.
