Electrical resistance of Epitropic
fibre is 10 – 100 Megohms/cm
Approximately 1% Epitropic fibre
prevents discomfort from static in everyday clothing and carpets
2 – 5% Epitropic fibre is
necessary in fabrics for industrial filters and safety workwear
Resistivity is approximately 1
– 100 Megohms/sq but is dependent on the fabric and its construction
OF EPITROPIC FIBRE TO CHEMICAL AGENTS
Except under the most extreme conditions the rate of
acid hydrolysis is very slow and good resistance to the majority of
mineral and organic acids can be expected.
alkalis except ammonia and its derivatives cause progressive solution
of the fibre. Ammonia, quaternary bases, Amines etc degrade the fibre
without dissolving it. Maximum level recommended is pH 10.
Epitropic fibre has excellent resistance to oxidising
agents and withstands bleaching processes.
Epitropic fibre has excellent resistance to reducing
to dry heat
