Monofilament with antistatic properties


AntiStat is a polyester-based monofilament having antistatic properties. In a patented one-step process, two streams of polymeric material are extruded almost simultaneously to produce a core-sheath monofilament. The core serves primarily to give strength to the filament while the sheath with its carbon content performs the function of removing any static charge. AntiStat is offered in two versions – low-shrinkage or high-shrinkage – in the diameter range of 0.20mm to 0.90mm. It is characterized by good core-sheath adhesion. Moreover, AntiStat has a volume resistivity of ≤ 250 Ohm x cm.
