Product description

Stainless steel yarn for ant-static textiles - Bekinox
© Bekaert

Bekaert Bekinox® stainless steel fibers and yarns are used to safely discharge static electricity which can lead to explosions or damage electronic equipment.
If you rely on anti-static textiles made from Bekaert Bekinox® fibers, filaments and yarns, you prevent the build-up of static electricity and electrostatic discharges.

Reliable protection in explosive environments
In the petrochemical and gas industry, workers are often exposed to explosive atmospheres. Due to their excellent conductivity, our fibers and yarns take away the ignition source by preventing build up of static electricity.
Personal protective clothing made with Bekaert Bekinox® yarns easily fulfill the international standards valid in the manufacturing and assembling process of the electronic industry. They make sure that static charge, generated by body movement and fabric friction, is led safely away to earth and does not destroy sensitive micro-electronic products or cause unseen latent damage which can get to the consumer and ultimately damage your product reliability and reputation. Fabrics with Bekaert Bekinox® fibers easily resist 50 industrial washings. A new range of cotton Bekinox® yarns have been developed for both summer and winter protective clothing.

Enhanced safety
Bekaert Bekinox® electro-conductive fibers and yarns in dust removal filters prevent explosions by avoiding electrostatic discharges.

Reliable under extreme conditions
Bekaert Bekinox® conductive yarns in big bags help to avoid explosions by preventing spark discharges.

Extra comfort and seamless performance
Bekaert Bekinox® stainless steel fibers in floor coverings provide comfort and protect electronic apparatus against defects caused by electrostatic discharge.

Ongoing effectiveness
Anti-static brushes made of Bekaert Bekinox® continuous filament yarns are mounted in fax machines, copiers, high-speed printers. They prevent malfunctioning due to static electricity.

better together

  • transmission-cable

    Situation

    Alcan and Bekaert joined forces to install 210 miles of transmission cable

    Solution

    Bekaert seamlessly adjusted the lengths of the reels to help Alcan’s trucks drive through mountainous terrain

    Result

    Alcan could meet their customer’s delivery requirements

  • Algeciras-port

    Situation

    Optimal reinforcement required for the concrete pavement of the Algeciras port terminal in Spain.

    Solution

    Concrete strengthened with Dramix steel fibers, offering high fatigue resistance and load bearing capacity.

    Result

    The solution largely exceeds the Spanish standard for the design and construction of port pavement set at a durability of at least 25 years.

  • ski

    Situation

    Skiers count on safety when they go up the mountain

    Solution

    In close cooperation Bekaert developed superior quality wires that meet the technical customer requirements of ropeway constructors

    Result

    The customer handles the production of the cables, but also on-site weaving (or splicing) and installation. The cables have a life expectancy up to 40 years
