Antistatic Lab Coat
ESD safe garments, whether we are talking about ESD Lab coats, ESD T-Shirts, ESD Polo Shirts, are clothing with conductive properties. In practice this means that in the ESD textile a conductive yarn is woven into a specific pattern. This pattern can take many forms which need to meet the international accepted ESD-standards, the “Grid” is the only option. This pattern must be taken to ensure that controlled loads are discharged. The conductive yarns may not be more than 10mm apart.
The most critical element in ESD clothing, in addition to whether or not use of conductive yarn, is the washing of the ESD-clothes.
