How a quality comb made from ebonit is created:
Ebonite is vulcanised natural rubber: When vulcanised in hot steam, rubber’s soft structures are crosslinked by sulphur molecules and thus a material is created which is fl exible yet dimensionally stable.
The natural rubber is pressed between metal foil and the comb mould. After vulcanisation the metal foil is
removed and ebonite has been formed out of the soft rubber.
The comb sheets are then worked by hand (grinding, sawing and polishing) whereby the surface quality as
well as the precision of the tooth-cutting are constantly monitored so that only faultless combs without any
hair damaging burrs leave our factory.
Finally, the comb is embossed with gold-colored foil with the world famous ’Hercules Sägemann’, the
brand which guarantees highest quality, functional design and maximum hair protection.
The high quality and extraordinary character of products offer a unique feeling of luxury. Our products fulfil the highest standard of quality, design and performance. The combs glide gently through the hair and over the scalp: maximum hair protection and pure enjoyment.
Common combs have burrs on and between the teeth and damage the hair.
Healthy hair thanks to burr-free teeth and manually rounded tips.
