Nylon, Carbon, Polyurethane Gloves
Electrostatic Dissipative Gloves
Tex-Stat Co, has developed a line of gloves specifically for use in applications where static electricty must be controlled.
The gloves feature highly-conductive Thunderon® fiber.
Ideal for protecting both product and hands in electronics assembly and other clean room applications, low-lingint gloves
are made of yarns that combine man-made fibers with Thunderon®,
a fiber that exhibits exceptionally high electrical conductivity.
Thunderon® fiber is created by bonding copper sulfide to a host
fiber. Beacuse the outer conductive layer completely surrounds and actually becomes a part of host fiber, the conductive properties
of thunderon are extraordinary.
Tex-Stat Co, 's new electrostatic-dissipative (ESD) gloves are knitted in a seamless constructive using fine-guage knitting
machines. During the knitting process, Thunderon® fiber is combined
with carier yarn made of man-made fiber. The type of fiber selected for use in the carrier yarn is dependent upon the intended
end-use of the glove. For most applications, a nylon is ideal. A carrier yarn made of Dupont's Kevlar Kleen® , an air-jet textured, continuous-filament aramid fiber, is used in gloves that
are earmarked for use in applications requing a higher level of protection from cuts.
The resaulting gloves exhibit excellent electrostatic-dissipative properties. And ,because they are knitted on fine guage
machines, the gloves provide a close but nonbinding fit that allows easy hand movement and a high level of tactile sensitivity.
The combination of thunderon with carrier yarn results in excellent hand coverage while it enhanced the cost effectiveness
of the new gloves.
ESD gloves are available in a variety of sozed, and a color-coded wrist trim makes size identification easy.
