Conductrol is a uniquely engineered acrylic based fiber for the control of electrostatic discharge that combines the stability of carbon-based fibers with the enhanced performance of modified fibers.
Conductrol is a uniquely engineered acrylic based fiber for the control of electrostatic discharge that combines the stability of carbon-based fibers with the enhanced performance of modified fibers.

Electrostatic Discharge, referred to as ESD, is the phenomena of that uncomfortable spark you see and feel after you walk across a carpet and touch a doorknob. In certain environments such as solids/air filtration, a single spark has the potential to set off an explosion. Therefore, control of ESD is required in many different industries.

Conductrol can be incorporated into:

  • Filtration products, woven and non woven
  • Carpet backing: needle punched, woven scrim
  • Upholstery: spun yarns incorporated into fabrics
  • Apparel: spun yarns for woven or staple for non woven fabrics
  • Specialty Materials: short staple incorporated into mediums such as adhesives, rubber and epoxy flooring.
  • The blend level ratio in the above applications may be adjusted to give the desired level of conductivity.

The cross section of this revolutionary patented fiber shows how the polymer is suffused to the fiber, resulting in a highly stable conductive product. Conductivity will remain constant over the life of the product.
