Anti-static protection when it counts

Static electricity is generated everyday. A charge can build up when two unlike materials make contact and are separated from each other, for instance by friction or the rubbing of garments. Electro-static discharge is the transfer of this charge from one subject to another, which results in an electric current. These common little shocks can have big consequences in specific environments. The result could be anything from costly damage to micro-electronic components or possibly even fatal casualties when a spark is generated and leads to an explosion.

Bekaert Bekinox stainless steel fibres and yarns are highly effective in conducting static electricity away from people and products, and transferring that energy down to the earth when grounded. Fabrics containing Bekinox stainless steel fibres do not charge up in earthed conditions, even after several washings. Each situation is unique and your customers´ requirements may vary. This is why we have a range of products available, as well as the possibility to tailor a solution to what you really need.

The stainless steel fibres for anti-static textiles can be used in a number of applications.

Protective clothing
Your protective textiles may require a special yarn that can secure anti-static protection. Our stainless steel fibres end up in the most extreme environment like for example in oil and petrol installations in Russia. Bekaert Bekinox does not charge up while grounded because the electricity is discharged immediately, so not rest charge can remain on the garment.

In anti-static protective clothing Bekaert Bekinox BK 50, mainly introduced in the fabric in a grid structure of 10 x 10 mm, allows one to easily fulfill international standards for flammable and explosive atmosphere and for the electronic industry. With high conductivity, no rest charge will remain on the garment.

FIBC
For the flexible intermediate bulk container (big bags type C), our stainless steel fibres and yarns are an economical option. Since they are +-50 times more conductive than carbon, less of the materials are needed to have the same anti-static result.

Anti-static filtration
Bekinox PES 12/50 is an intimate blend of stainless steel fibres with polyester. It has been especially developed to achieve static control in non-woven textiles for filtration.
