Thunderon® is a conductive fiber material that offers far greater control of static electricity, and superiority in overall performance than carbon coated conductive fiber. Thunderon® removes the static charge that makes dirt and particles adhere to work surfaces. It also has good abrasion resistance, does not break easily, and has a strong anti-bacterial performance due to the nature of the surface coating.
Technically, Thunderon® fiber is an acrylic fiber that has been chemically bonded with a layer of copper sulfide. This outer layer becomes a part of the host fiber itself, which precludes the 'flaking' problem experienced by other conductive fibers.
