This toothbrush style brush is staple-set with yellow abrasion-resistant, stiff 0.016" static dissipative Nylon filament. It has a 3 x 7/6/7 row staggered tuft pattern, with a 7/16" trim and a brush face of 1-3/8" x 1/4". This brush has a bent conductive plastic handle with finger grips and hang-up hole. Each handle displays the universal ESD safe logo in bright yellow epoxy ink. Available in 3 bristle stiffness options: soft part #21N-ESD-LT ; medium part #21N-ESD; and stiff part #21N-ESD-016.
This brush is ideal for use in almost any situation where Electro-Static Discharge (ESD) is a concern or where anti-static brushes are required. This would include cleaning, scrubbing or dusting sensitive electronic circuitry in any of today's sophisticated ESD workstations and in potentially explosive applications where a static discharge spark could be a serious problem. Destructive surface charges do not build up, since they quickly and safely dissipate through the grounded technician in a controlled manner during use.
The brushes are compliant with both EN 61340-5-1 and the EOS/ESD Association Inc. recommendations for static controlled environments. For more information go to Engineering Corner, ESD Safe Toothbrush Style Plastic Brushes.
