In the same way as KE Fibertec's HDC materials, the antistatic
materials are made of Trevira CS staple fiber yarns, i.e. yarns
that are spun of 38 mm long thin fibers.
The final yarn is made by twisting two yarns into one yarn that
is used both in warp and weft direction (length- and crosswise of
fabric). The result is a fabric that is capable of carrying a large
amount of dust without blocking the air flow through the material.
Such blocking would require washing of the textile duct to ensure
the distribution of the calculated quantity of air at the
calculated pressure loss.
Antistatic materials contain 8% steel fibers which will cause
any static charges generated from air friction against the fabric
to be conducted to an earth connection.
Antistatic materials are often used for sensitive applications
in which electrical charges may lead to interruptions, such as the
electronics industry and server rooms.
Antistatic materials are also applied in industries where
electrical charges may cause risk of explosions, such as
refineries, the chemical industry, battery production, and filling
