Ciret’s Big News – The Kana Tank Brush Receives European Patent


Ciret has got fantastic news that we would like to share. We are very proud to announce that we now have the official European Patent for our fantastic and innovative Premier Kana Tank Brush.

In 2015, Storch-Ciret Group, Europe’s largest manufacturer and supplier of painting and decorating tools, first applied for a European Patent across our full range of Tank brushes available in Europe. Tank brushes include the Kana Tank Brush, available on the UK market, as well as the WoodStar, LasurSTAR and Kana Turbo, that are sold across Europe.

After several years of patent office procedures, including substantive examination and the evaluation of regional scope of protection, Storch-Ciret has finally received the official patent for this unique brush technology.

The patent is active across several European countries including Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Lichtenstein, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and of course the United Kingdom.

What makes the Tank Brush unique?

The Premier Kana Tank has an innovative 2 in 1 combination of natural and synthetic bristles. An inner natural bristle tank holds an exceptional amount of varnish or woodstain. The outer 100% synthetic finely tipped bristle ensures a fine and smooth finish every time

 Its unique design promises greater coverage and can cover up to 30% more surface area with just one dip. Tank is available in three sizes: 1”, 2” and 3”.

Our ROTA!, Kana, masq and prep brands have been specifically designed to provide qualitative solutions for the entire decorating process, from initial preparation right through to the finishing touches, on both interior and exterior projects.
