2% is carbon fillament woven into the fabric, i assume the black lines are it..

inifinity are a plastics company. they hold patent on the PES, Polyethersulfone, which is basically resistant to everything from temperature to chemicals..

so its a proper work shirt

Where do you work to need that lol?

anywhere with static sensitive things, and/or explosive material

we used to have something similar for when we worked with the hoppers full of plastic chips. the dust became explosive, one spark would have literally blown the silo up... resulting in a couple of hundred tonnes of plastic granules catching fire

I thought it was plastic, but couldn't imagine how a lab coat could be 98% plastic..

Yeah, it's an antistatic work shirt, has a conductive matrix running through so you don't build up static.

Made by DuPont - pretty much make everything to do with fancy materials.

I don't get anything like that even though we make inductors, although not much static.

Not true, I know people who work with explosive and their shirts don't have that.

Meant to say explosive environments, ie inside the plastic hoppers at a plastic factory.. near the MEK wash at work.. for that reason we needed static resistant shoes and this type of clothing. A static spark isn't going to cause detonation in an explosive like petn, but given the right quantity of flammable dust, and oxygen one spark and booooom.

However they don't tend to wear them in bakeries and flour hanging in the air in the right quantities is still pretty explosive

Totally depends on the explosive, sparks don't necessarily mean instant boom, for example as said above, PETN needs a good amount of energy to make it release it's energy. Nitroglycerine one of the more powerful explosives you can even shove in a flame and it burns pretty normally, however shove a teensy blasting cap in one ka-f*cking-boom.

Bakeries aren't considered a massive risk due to good ventilation. A flour making plant however I'd expect they have pretty good anti-static precautions.

Computer components are the usual one, semiconductors are pretty sensitive to it, however even I can count the amount of components killed due to static. The answer is zero, the amount of components I've replaced for my work is somewhat high (consider that most machines I work on have 16 or 32 DIMMs in and usually there's over 100 machines in a typical cluster) - I spend a fair amount of time swapping out faulty DIMMs from the factory... Yet I've not ONCE killed one.

I work in a bakery and like Ruan said, we have good ventilation. Theres also a new extractor system everywhere you might contact flour, so it doesnt linger in the air either Smile
Doesnt even own a 306.
