Static electricity can cause fire when handling flammable goods and is also the cuase of most damage to electronic components. A static charge can be defined as a stationary electrical charge which is generated whenever two materials contact and separate.
Some typical sources of static charges and electronic voltages are:
At Chemtools we have developed a range of static control chemicals, which is aimed for inustrial, commercial and electronic use. These include floor maintenance products for use in commercial buildings, in dangerous goods areas, electronic production floors and more.
We manufacture a topical antistatic liquid which can be used on any porous material, such as clothes, paper, fabric and carpet. We also have a range of fast drying, cleaning chemicals for the domestic and field repair technicians, these can be used to wipe down equipment and with prolonged use will stop airborne dust from re-attracting themselves to the equipment.
