STATIC CONTROL WITH Nega-Stat®
Nega-Stat® is introduced into textile materials to provide protection against a range of risks and hazards caused by static electricity in industrial end-use situations.
Nega-Stat® yarns are used in products and end-uses where full grounding is essential and in industrial applications where it is not possible to ensure complete grounding.
Nega-Stat® yarns are constructed with a unique trilobal shaped conducting core surrounded by a sheath of Polyester. Yarns are offered with performance characteristics designed to meet specific industrial end-use requirements and international Standards.
SITUATIONS WHERE A FULL GROUNDING IS NOT POSSIBLE OR IMPRACTICABLE - WHAT ARE THE RISKS?
Nega-Stat® P190 is a unique bi-component core conducting yarn designed for product and end-uses where full grounding is essential and for use in areas where it is not possible to ensure full grounding. Nega-Stat® P190 is used in selected products and specific industrial situations where grounding is, either, not required, or is not possible.
Control of static electricity is necessary for a wide range of products in many industrial situations. Static electricity or „static“ occurs, when two surfaces separate. On separation both surfaces become charged with an electrical static charge. A static discharge can cause damage to sensitive electronic equipment, cause a static shock and can cause an incendiary discharge and industrial explosion.
Static discharges are dangerous and can be the cause of serious personal injury or major industrial damage.
Nega-Stat® yarns are currently used in a wide range of industrial products to eliminate or control static electricity. Nega-Stat® is introduced in defined grid, or stripe patterns to woven, knitted or non-woven fabrics to provide static control according to specific industrial requirements and/or international Standards (such as EN 61340, EN 1149/5, JIS1094 etc.). Nega-Stat® meets all requirements according to OekoTex 100 and Reach requirements for harmful substances.
The unique design of Nega-Stat® ensures full static protection for the duration and work-life of the product in specific industrial situations.
