Antistatic gloves are gloves with conductive surfaces that effectively eliminate static electricity.
Although we cannot observe it with the naked eye, static electricity is generated when materials come into contact with each other. In this way, static electricity generated during work can cause problems such as adhesion of dirt and dust to the specimen, as well as malfunction of precision electrical and electronic equipment and cause equipment failure. In some cases, static electricity can also cause explosions.
Wearing antistatic gloves is an effective solution to these problems.
Antistatic gloves are particularly effective in the field of electronics, where they are used to eliminate damage to precision electronic equipment caused by static electricity and to protect products and components.
The most common anti-static measure used in the electronics field is the use of wrist straps. However, static charge on the fingertips can be a problem when performing detailed work. In such cases, the use of antistatic gloves eliminates direct hand contact with the object and is considered to be an effective antistatic measure.
Wearing antistatic gloves at the same time is more effective in eliminating static electricity than using a wrist strap alone.
Antistatic gloves have conductive surface that prevents the buildup of an electrical charge on the gloves.
The advantage of wearing antistatic gloves are that they are easy to put on and take off. In addition to static electricity countermeasures, wearing gloves can also be expected to prevent injuries during work. On the other hand, wearing gloves can also be a problem because it makes it harder to handle small parts compared to working with bare hands.
Antistatic gloves are available in a variety of materials, including conductive fibers and resins with conductive properties. For example, antistatic gloves made from conductive fibers such as copper sulfide composite fiber or carbon maintain their antistatic properties even after repeated washing. Anti-static gloves made from polyurethane resin with conductive additives and vinyl chloride resin have excellent oil resistance and abrasion resistance. From these various types of anti-static gloves, you can select and use the most suitable one depending on the application.
