  • Fiber polishing puck
  • Tape for holding onto cleaved fiber waste

Fry’s Electronics Closing

Shaxon Industries had a large presence of products in the Fry’s Electronics stores and has been scaling up their direct to consumer online sales in 2020.

The company, which had 31 stores across nine US states, said in a statement on its website that it “made the difficult decision to shut down its operations and close its business permanently” because of changing consumer shopping habits and the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Based in San Jose, California, the privately held company was a family business. It was founded in 1985 by the three Fry brothers with the goal of being a “Silicon Valley retail electronics store to provide a one-stop-shopping environment for the Hi-Tech Professional.”

“It is hoped that undertaking the wind-down through this orderly process will reduce costs, avoid additional liabilities, minimize the impact on our customers, vendors, landlords and associates, and maximize the value of the company’s assets for its creditors and other stakeholders,” Fry’s explained on its website.

Shaxon Industries also offers products through other retail channels such as Micro Center, Amazon.com, Santa Cruz Electronics, select California Ace Hardware Stores, and Menard’s.

If you have difficulty finding a source or would like to see Shaxon products at your local business, send us a message through our contact us page and we will pursue your recommendations. The full retail line of Shaxon products are available on this direct to consumer site as well.

California Prop 65 Warnings

On August 30, 2016, the Office of Administrative Law approved the adoption of amendments to Article 6, Clear and Reasonable Warnings, of the California Code of Regulations. This regulatory action repeals all the regulatory provisions of Title 27 of the California Code of Regulations, Article 6 (sections 25601 et seq.), except those added via an emergency rule-making in April 2016 related to warnings for exposures to bisphenol A in canned foods and beverages (Sections 25603.3(f) and (g)). The action will replace the repealed sections with a new regulation divided into two new Sub-articles to Article 6. The repealed and new regulations provide, among other things, methods of transmission and content of warnings deemed to be compliant with the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65).

The regulation will be operative on August 30, 2018. In the interim, businesses may comply with the regulation in effect on August 30, 2016, or the provisions of the new regulation. This will allow for a reasonable transition period for businesses to begin providing warnings under the new provisions.

About Microfiber Cloths

About our microfiber cloths.

Microfiber cloths have become increasingly popular with consumers in recent years. Cloths are commonly manufactured with synthetic threads that have a diameter smaller than a strand of silk. Fibers are then used to produce a woven or non woven product. The most popular form of microfiber cloths are produced from woven fibers that have been split in the manufacturing process. The combinations, shape, and size of the fibers allow manufacturers to produce cloth with different characteristics.

What makes a great microfiber cleaning cloth?

The most common microfiber cloths are composed of a blend of woven polyamide and polyester threads that have been split. Cloths that are made with this blend of materials and the right knitting process are incredibly effective, soft, and durable. These cloths can absorb oils and many times their weight in water and are not hard enough to scratch unless they have retained particles from previous use. A high quality microfiber cloth will grip on a microscopic scale and should feel like it is sticking to the fine details of your hands.

Used at home and in professional cleaning applications.

The characteristics and durability of our microfiber cloths have made them popular with professionals and every day cleaning at home.

  • Automobile enthusiasts and detail teams use microfiber cloths for their versatility. They can be used to remove wax from paint, clean glass, remove interior dust, and for drying.
  • Janitorial services and home owners use microfiber cloths because the durability makes them last longer than a cloth made from organic fibers and they are more economical than paper towels.
  • Professional photographers frequently use microfiber cloths on lenses and equipment to absorb and clean debris without leaving residue behind or being abrasive.

Proper care for our microfiber cloths.

It is important to wash microfiber cloth in hot water with regular washing detergent. Self-softening detergents contain oils that will make the fibers of the cloth less effective until it is properly washed. Cloths are made from synthetic materials and the fibers will melt together in the high heat of tumble dryers. You may tumble dry the cloth without dryer sheets and only on the low heat setting.
