Different industries can have issues with static charge; mining, electrical…etc. Static charge can cause serious problems in many different industries to sensitive equipment so many steps are needed to help prevent the build up of static charge. Static electricity build-up occurs when there is rubbing or peeling. The static charges are often discharged via an arc or spark when in contact with a person or microcircuit. This electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause fire hazards with flammables and damages to electronic components. Anti static tarpaulin materials prevent static electricity build-up and cause a slow decay of static charge from a hundredth of to several seconds. Working in tanks, manholes, and underground vaults are some of the most dangerous and potentially lethal occupations found in the industrial work environment. Federal, state, and corporate safety departments have written reams of documents and procedures on how to enter a confined space safely and perform some sort of maintenance, repair, or cleaning operation. Good corporate work practices and procedures have existed for years at the industry-specific level.
Anti-Static Flexible Ventilation Ducting
DuraTarps High-Performance Heavy-duty Anti-Static Flexible Ducting is made from Anti-Static, flame retardant neoprene polyester material. It is reinforced with steel helix coils making it extremely durable and yet highly flexible. The Flexible ducting is available in a range of diameters. Anti-Static air ducting is used to bring fresh air in to a hazardous area, extract contaminated air out and also used to direct heated air where it is needed. It is also applied in the condition of hazardous location for continuous operation & used in facilities where chemical and gas or dust could cause ignition . It’s widely used for ventilation at Paint Spray Booths, mines, oil industry, military industry, chemical industry, medicine, metallurgy, etc.
DuraTarps independently researches and develops high-quality air duct film formulas, and adjusts them in time according to seasons, uses and performance. Never add waste, recycled materials, low-quality oil, never rely on calcium powder to fill low cost, never rely on cutting corners to make ill-gotten gains; adhere to the difference between high, middle and low-end fabrics, different seasons, and performance Therefore, it can ensure the stability of product quality, excellent cost performance, long service life and environmental adaptability.
The unique surface carbon black treatment antistatic technology of DuraTarps to ensure that the surface resistance value is stable at two years after underground use Within 106Ω. Our company has successfully developed an anti-static surface formulation. The anti-static index is stable at about 106Ω. The air duct fabric has no volatile components, and no VOC emissions can be achieved during the production process.

How is static resistance measured?
Static resistance is measured in Ohms (Ω) and can be measured using what are called Ohm meters (a common instrument in most workshops). Resistance measurements will fall somewhere between 0 (for a truly conductive material such as metal or water) and infinity (for truly insulative materials such as rubber and fabrics). Resistance measurements for plastic materials with some level of conductivity are usually measured in Mega-Ohms (MΩ). 1 Mega-Ohm = 1,000,000 (1 million) Ohms.
- Preventing the buildup of static electricity. Reducing static electric charges, as on textiles, waxes, polishes, etc., by retaining enough moisture to provide electrical conduction.
