Germany based specialty fibre producer Kelheim Fibres has developed a viscose fibre which offers static dissipation, by the incorporation of electrically conductive additives into the fibre's core. The functional additives are evenly distributed in the whole fibre, while at the same time; the high absorbency properties of the viscose fibre are retained.

“First tests done on a laboratory scale on the fibres have shown a significant increase in electrical conductivity of the fibre in comparison to a standard viscose fibre,” Kelheim said.

These new fibres can be used in protective workwear for electrostatic discharge or for the protection of electronic components and can be made available by Kelheim in the middle conductivity range from about 10-4 S/m to 0,1 S/m.

The fibres can also be used in humidity sensors, wherever an immediate detection of moisture is required like in bed pads for the healthcare sector as well as in roof linings to detect possible leakages. (AR)
