We offer a wide range of sponges to suit all sponging machines, including finger skirts, flatware sponges, belt sponges and cup-edge sponges.
Our hand sponges are designed so that seams are removed effortlessly to give a smooth high-quality finish.
However we can also design and manufacture bespoke sponges according to customers' ideas.
These specialist products were originally developed by Hygan in the 1970s to enable teapot manufacturers to achieve a rapid, high-quality and consistent spout shape without dust.
A range of shapes and sizes has evolved to smooth and fettle around handles and spouts on all types of hollow-ware.
However we can also design and manufacture bespoke sponge-sticks according to customers’ ideas for use by hand or for machines and robots.
These are available in 2 types :
Silks and Honeycomb
Silks are fine-pored and range in size from 1 – 5" (2.5 – 12.5 cm). Their fine face makes them ideal for modelling and mould-making.
Honeycomb sponges are more open-pored and range in size from 3 – 6” (7.5 – 15 cm). Their cell structure enables them to be used in decorating and casting.
