Parts of industrial installations have a tendency to accumulate static electricity until their energy level is sufficient to discharge onto the nearest conductor. The energy discharge can be very high and can first, seriously damage sensitive electronic equipment and second, produce electromagnetic radiation that can influence other equipment.
Coatings with antistatic properties are coatings which, by adding specific charges (metal particles, graphite), become partially conductive. They ensure the dissipation of electrostatic charges on the surface.
These coatings can also combine other functionalities. Bonded coatings or non-stick coatings (food or non-food) and can thus be antistatic.
Examples of applications :
Slides or conveyor elements that can accumulate electrostatic charges.
Instruments for electronics
