China gets first anti-static industrial textile R&D centre
Dec '13
An anti-static industrial textile research and development (R&D) centre has been established in China, marking the entry of the country’s textile industry into an anti-static era.
Several industries including aviation, aerospace, chemical, construction, coal, electricity, petroleum, railway and sanitation need a lot of anti-static protective clothing to ensure life and property safety at the workplace. It is estimated that there are about 700 million industrial workers in China, which makes a huge market and there was not a single anti-static protective textile research centre in the country.
The establishment of the new centre by Sea Technology Co. Ltd., under authorization by the China Textiles Industry Association, is expected to help China improve the application of anti-static textile technology, providing a solid foundation for the development of high-tech, multi-functional protective wear.
The establishment of the anti-static research centre also gains importance in view of the recent Qingdao pipeline bombings, which were triggered due to leakage of oil and gas in the air caused by static electricity, which shows that the promotion and popularization of anti-static wear has become imperative.
