Anti-static and electrically conductive wheels are categorised according to level of resistivity. Anti-static wheels generally have resistivity ratings of below: 10 ^ 6 Ω (ohms). Electrically conductive wheels have a resistivity rating below: 10 ^ 4 Ω (ohms). Please view our range of anti-static wheels below.(Prices at the bottom of the page)
