Testing, measurement and control of anti-static properties in materials.
Intertek helps clients understand the anti-static properties of materials. Such knowledge is crucial in many applications, where the build up of static charges can lead to hazardous or problematic electrical discharges.
The ability of a material to discharge damaging electrical charges is affected by purity, level of contamination, moisture content and physical form (including surface roughness) and other factors. For mission critical applications it is important to carry out a proper evaluation of these static properties, rather than relying entirely on just theoretical materials properties.
Intertek provides test methods to assess anti-static properties of materials. Measurements are typically made on solid substances, but can also be carried out on powders and liquids.
