Nylostat is a heavier, softer, more natural feeling fabric intended for non-critical ESD applications, where basic static shielding is desired. Nylostat has a precured soil-release resin finish to offer easy care characteristics to garments. Such properties as wrinkle resistance in use and no iron properties when washed and tumble dried minimize the maintenance effort for the wearer.
Surface Resistivity – Electrical resistivity influences the accumulation of electrostatic charge on a fabric. Specimens conditioned at 50% relative humidity and 70°F are tested for resistance to passage of electrical current. The surface resistivity should be less than 10^11 ohms.
Voltage Decay Test – Using a standard test procedure to apply both positive and negative 5000 volt charges to fabric samples, the time required for a specimen to drop to 10% of charge potential and for complete dissipation of the charge are measured. The shorter the time to zero voltage the better a material’s ability to dissipate a charge induced on the surface is when grounded.

Unlaundered: 2.6 x 106 < 0.01 seconds
25 launderings: 4.7 x 108 < 0.01 seconds
50 launderings: 4.8 x 109 < 0.01 seconds
Wash in cool or cold water with any commercially-available liquid detergent, hang dry or dry at 120°F or less. Do not bleach, iron, or use fabric softener. The carbon-suffused monofilament nylon is sensitive to heat and should not be exposed to laundering heat in excess of 120°F. Wash at 90°F (Maximum) and tumble dry at low heat or hang dry.
