No-Shock® anti-static fiber from Ascend Performance Materials is an economical, permanent anti-static solution for all fabrics. The anti-static material is an inherent part of our fiber, not a treatment or post-application, so it lasts as long as the fiber or fabric.
Our fibers are used in industrial work wear, flame-retardant garments, military uniforms, conveyor belts, industrial filters, copier brushes, flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBC), carpets and rugs, and most fabric applications requiring static dissipation. Both nylon- and polyester-based products are available.
All No-Shock products (undrawn filament, drawn filament, staple fibers and sliver forms) are based upon our proven bi-component fiber technology. One polymer filled with solid conductive material forms a stripe(s), a sheath, a core or some combination within the thread line. The second polymer, called the carrier or unfilled polymer, provides strength, elongation and tensile properties for the fiber depending on the application.
