Abstract

Synthesis and fabrication of material for workers in high power utilities to protect from emf. A safety material consist of two-layer.one layer is a conducting material another acts as non-conducting material. Analysis says that workers are exposed in high power emf effected with cell damage, change in the flow of calcium in and out of cells, change in hormone production and cell growth, might feel minute of vibration of hair and skin. First conductivity layer is prepared with polyaniline conducting polymers which provide a faraday shielding against electromagnetic & electric field. Secondary layer of polyvinyl alcohol is a non-conducting polymer gives shielding against magnetic field, material are tested against electrical field, magnetic field, material of available range in the high power utility. Along with shielding, material offers a cost effective option with high flexibility and durability, compare to existing conductive wear.
