CLEANSTATIC-180 TC

CleanStatic-180 TC is our new Antistatic fabric. Antistatic fibres safely discharge static electricity, eliminating the risk of a gas explosion and destroying electronic components. This Antistatic fabric has a twill weave and Belltron antistatic yarn, gridlocked in the surface of a fabric. A CleanStatic-180 is designed for antistatic clothing for Cleanrooms.

Antistatic fabrics are designed to prevent ESD effect when working with electronics, high-explosive vapours or super-clean lab works. Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) appears when two materials contact each other and then separate. It discharges with a spark when you touch a metallic (conductive) piece.his effect might damage electronic schemes, precision machines and even cause an explosion of gas. To prevent ESD and discharge static electricity in the air, antistatic fibres are woven into the fabric.

EN 1149-5 certification involved test for Charge decay, according EN 1149-3:2004, x5 washing cycles at 60ºC.

Now we can say Cleanstatic-110 has reached high level of durability and performance to PASS the certification and go to the clients.
