A build up of electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage sensitive electronic components or give fire risks when handling solvents and other flammable materials. These garments are perfect for use in electrostatic protected areas.Conductive fibres in garments work by preventing the static charge build up by allowing it to dissapate through the conductive fibres and go to earth.
