45flatop, your claim got me curious so I did a little research. I went to Battenfeld’s website, (they make Tipton), in the product description they make no claim their brushes or jags have a special coating.
I scrub for carbon with bronze, copper with nylon. I also replace my brushes once a year, personally I’ve found a worn out brush will still hit the high spot of the rifling but it’s not to good at getting in the valley.
I don’t use Tipton based on others experiences.
