Innovative, Stretchable TAKK Anti-Static FlexCord

Press release date: July 27, 2011

TAKK's new Anti-Static FlexCord is constructed of Thunderon® microfibers with thousands of conductive points causing ionization and grounding of static charges. Easily removes static electricity from moving webs, conveyors, parts, etc. FlexCord can be precisely positioned, mounted in confined spaces, will not spark and can be used in hazardous locations. Available in 32.5 ft. rolls (10m), the FlexCord stretches to approximately double its length allowing it to be pulled taut and protecting material from flow snags.

Place the Anti-Static FlexCord tautly across and approximately ¼" to ½" above a moving web or conveyor. The micro filaments projecting from the FlexCord interact with the static field on the product or conveyor, eliminating the static charge on the surface.

Available with Magnet Mounting Kits for easy installation on metal surfaces.

Typical Applications include plastic, paper, textile webs, digital printers, paper folders, printing presses, conveyors and other applications where static electricity causes product flow problems, quality impairments, or personnel shock.
