This conductive brush has Thunderon® fill material hand-laced into an aluminum handle. The hand-lacing is done with stainless steel wire for superior fiber retention and durability. This high-quality brush has a 3 x 11 row configuration, with a 7/16" trim, and a brush face of 1-1/4" x 5/16". Thunderon® is an extremely fine conductive fiber that is super soft and great 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 on static-charged surfaces.
For other brush size options in this series using Thunderon®, see parts: 11TA, 22TA.

Conductive brushes have a surface resistivity range of 10²Ω/cm — 10⁴Ω/cm 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. They are 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.)
