Under the same environmental conditions, it is also important how strong the fabric's moisturizing ability is. Water is a good conductor, which can guide the amount of charge on the surface of the object and effectively avoid the accumulation of static electricity. If the fabric fiber is hydrophilic and good at absorbing water from the environment to keep its own surface wet, the resistance of the fabric surface will be greatly reduced, which is conducive to the loss of static electricity. The cellulose molecules that make up cotton and linen fabrics are good at absorbing water. On the contrary, many synthetic polymers often made into fibers are very hydrophobic and have poor moisture absorption. Polyester, nylon and other chemical fibers contain much less water than natural fibers such as cotton and silk, so the greater the resistance, the more difficult it is to dredge static electricity. The static electricity on the fiber accumulates more and more, and what is waiting for you is crackling electric sparks.

Where does static electricity come from?

In short, in the process of friction between two kinds of cloth, one cloth will take away the electrons on the surface of the other cloth. If two fibers are separated, one is negatively charged and the other is positively charged by the same amount, their respective charges belong to static electricity. To achieve charge balance, they will release or take charge from the surrounding fabrics and bodies. This is a process of electron flow, that is, a painful phenomenon of electrostatic discharge.


Principle of ESD Clothes

The effective solution is to transform the fiber into ESD Clothes in the process of fiber production, which can "consciously" absorb water from the environment. ESD Clothes blends fibers with poor water absorption and fibers with good water absorption, such as polyester and cotton, which can make them longer and shorter and avoid static electricity accumulation. In addition, there are many methods to change the properties of chemical fibers, such as adding additives to improve moisture absorption, or directly connecting hydrophilic groups with chemical fiber molecules.


However, if you really encounter a particularly dry environment, even ESD Clothes that are good at absorbing water may not be useful. At this time, "guide wire" can also be directly added to the fabric. For example, before spinning, conductive carbon black or metal compounds are added to ESD Clothes; Or coating the outer layer of anti-static clothing with a substance with a conductive component; Or weave conductive fibers such as metal fiber and carbon fiber into ESD Clothes. Work clothes with high antistatic requirements are usually made of conductive fibers.


When these conductive substances are contained in ESD Clothes, static electricity can be quickly dispersed and leaked to reduce local accumulation of static electricity, so as to avoid electrostatic discharge. Moreover, since ESD Clothes mainly provides electrical conductivity through free electrons, environmental humidity has little effect on its electrical conductivity. Even if it is used in dry areas, it also has good antistatic performance.With these technologies, chemical fiber can also get rid of the fate of being suspected due to static electricity.
