Ken Rakusin keeping business local
CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. — In 1990, Ken Rakusin took the position of president at Gordon Brush Manufacturing Company, but he was not sure what he was getting himself into.
The company was based out of a dark and rundown 15,000 square foot facility.
Thunderon® is a conductive fiber material that offers far greater control of static electricity, and superiority in overall performance than carbon coated conductive fiber. Thunderon® removes the static charge that makes dirt and particles adhere to work surfaces. It also has good abrasion resistance, does not break easily, and has a strong anti-bacterial performance due to the nature of the surface coating.
Technically, Thunderon® fiber is an acrylic fiber that has been chemically bonded with a layer of copper sulfide. This outer layer becomes a part of the host fiber itself, which precludes the 'flaking' problem experienced by other conductive fibers.
Our line of Thunderon® brushes is available in two different fill material types: Thunderon® or Thunderon®/Goat mixture. The Goat hair helps to stiffen up the Thunderon®; the Thunderon® brush alone will be super soft. In addition, this line offers two handle shape options: a shoe handle style or a short, "mustache" style brush.
