|This is a
high performance conductive bicomponent fiber born out of Kanebo's
conjugate fiber spinning technology. Blending a small amount of
Belltron with other fibers will make the resultant fabric sufficiently
antistatic. Belltron does not depend on the ambient humidity for
bringing about its antistatic effect. It has consistent antistatic
properties even in absolutely dry conditions. It can be blended with
other fibers in the pre-spinning stage. It can also be mixed with
other yarns at doubling, knitting and weaving stages. Kanebo is the
pioneer in the production of conductive fibers in Japan. Belltron has
enjoyed a solid record of achievement in sales for the last 22 years
since Kanebo started selling it in 1978.
|Product and technological
shown in below illustrations, a bicomponent fiber Belltron is
composed of a matrix polymer and a conductive layer. The layer
contains densely embedded carbon black or white metal compound as

|Conductive layer extends across
the fiber and is continuous along the direction of the fiber
axis. Both edges of the conductive carbon-containing portion
are exposed to the outer surface of the fiber. This unique
structure ensures static charge conduction and dissipation as
well as self-charging. As a result, Belltron has outstanding
|Nylon and polyester type
Belltron is available in filaments and staple fibers.
Belltron's conductive portion comes in carbon black and gray
colors. White type Belltron uses white metal compound as
conductive particles. This variety helps Belltron find various

|Nylon Belltron is less heat
resistant than polyester Belltron, so it may dissolve when
exposed to high temperatures at thermosol dyeing.
|Dissolvable in strong acids,
nylon Belltron should not be treated in strong acid solutions.
If an old chloric organic solvent is used repeatedly at a
laundry shop, the chlorine is set free and reacts with the
water to form hydrochloric acid. The acid may dissolve

We are also in a position to
offer mixed yarns of Polyester multifilament yarn with
intermingled Belltron components. In this way it is possible to strengthen the
yarn for easy weaving - possible for warp and for weft - to suit your
requirements and to ensure an excellent runability of the yarn.
Please note that all these
yarns are never produced on stock - only on specific demand. Minimum order is
100 bobbins = abt. 120 kgs.
