NEGA-STAT® benefits include :
Specially developed for industrial and service applications.
Encapsulated conductive filament dissipates static through charge induction and air ionization.
Polyester + cotton + anti-static material
While other anti-static fabrics work by conducting electric charges along the surface, NEGA-STAT® fabrics work by inducing charges into the unique encapsulated conductive carbon core.
The static-dissipative NEGA-STAT® fibres are adjacent to standard non-conductive yarns. If the fabric is charged to a (+) polarity by rubbing something against it, the (+) charges on both the conductive fibres and the non-conductive fibres induce electrons into the conductive core. This behavior is called charge induction and creates two effects, which combine to give NEGA-STAT® fabrics their excellent static control performance.
