Testing, measurement and control of anti-static properties in materials.
Intertek helps clients to 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, and thus damaging electrical charges is affected by the purity of the material, level of contamination, moisture content, 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.
