Abstract

A hook and loop fastener brush clothing for use in, for example, electrophotographic brush cleaning systems is disclosed. As shown in the figure, cleaning roller 1 has bonded to its outer surface hooked fabric 2. The hooked fabric 2 is wrapped or wound with a unitary piece of double looped fabric 3 or suitable non-woven fabric. The outer surface of the looped fabric 3 may serve as bristles of a brush cleaner element. Alternatively, a bristle bearing fabric that is backed by a second hooked fabric may be fitted over the hook and loop covered roller 1. Hook and loop fasteners are commercially available, for example, as Velcro*.
