Antistatic and conductive textiles

X. Zhang,     North Carolina State University, USA

Abstract:

The generation of static charges on the surface of textiles can lead to serious consequences, such as handling problems during textile processing, breaking down of sensitive electronic devices, ignition of flammable vapors and dusts in certain environments, clinging tendency and annoying electrical shocks during consumer use. This chapter introduces the fundamentals of static charge generation on textile materials and the key principles of antistatic and conductive textiles. The roles, types, evaluation methods and future trends of antistatic and conductive textiles are discussed.
