Conductive brush with Thunderon® bristle and a hand-laced aluminum handle. The Thunderon® fill material is hand-laced with stainless steel wire into its handle for maximum fiber retention and durability. This high-quality brush has a 2 x 11 row configuration, with a 7/16" trim, and a brush face of 1-1/4" x 1/4". Thunderon® is an extremely fine conductive fiber that is super soft, good for scratch-free dusting and static removal. The fineness of the fiber lends itself to be used in applications that require non-contact corona discharge of static charged surfaces. For a larger Thunderon® bristle brush see part # 33TA.

Conductive brushes have a surface resistivity range of 10² - 104 and are used to remove static buildup from the work surface. Conductive brushes will act as a conduit between the charged surface and the path to ground. Made with fully conductive materials that are active static eliminators. Use conductive brushes with a wrist strap or other mechanism to provide a path to ground. (Note: Conductive fibers are not recommended for use with unencapsulated electronic microcircuits; minute pieces of conductive material have been known to cause short circuits.)
