Industrial Seating™ pioneered the use of conductive fabric with a conductive backer. Without our patented system, following the path of a static charge on a seat cushion was very easy. It leaves smaller charges on the nonconductive filaments it passes on the surface. As each layer in an IS™ cushion is progresively more conductive, charges pass directly from the fabric to the backer, and then off the cushion.
These fabrics have a higher resistance level surfacce than in the special latex backing material. This direct the static charges through the special fabric to the lower resistance latex backing layer, eliminating static “Echo Charges”.
