Kinetronics Static Wisk Cleaning brush is particularly suitable for cleaning sensitive surfaces and at the same time removing any existing static charge.
The smaller brushes are ideal for removing dust from films or objectives without any danger to the coating. The bigger brushes are used for removing dust and lint from larger surfaces, such as the glass on picture frames, scanner glass, monitors, acrylic surfaces or plastic surfaces. The brush consists of a mixture of highly-flexible natural fibers and conductive synthetic fibers as well as a handle made of conductive plastic.
After they have been cleaned the treated surfaces are electrically neutral, and hence do not attract any dust particles. For extremely difficult cases there is also a brush with an earthing cable, which particularly effectively removes any charges. Dirty brushes can be washed without this influencing their anti-static effect. The brushes can be used at temperatures of up to 65°. The brushes are available in the sizes 20, 30, 60, 100, 140 and 280 mm.

Before cleaning a film strip with an anti-static brush we recommend you to remove rough dust from the film strip using compressed air. Otherwise it might happen that rough dust particles get stuck at the anti static brush and will be transferred to the next film strip.
When working with film strips it can often happen that you accidentally touch the emulsion side of the film. The damage often is irreparable. You can avoid damages to the film material and comfortably insert film strips into the scanner or film holder by wearing fine cotton gloves.
For working with single negatives or positives we highly recommend using tweezers, because otherwise you run the risk of touching and damaging the film.
