These are the two most important criteria for recommending a system for this environment. We recommended 2 possible options, both of which would be completely monolithic and seamless due to the excessive liquids that will be present.

The factors that should be considered in choosing a Material Type are as follows: An example of this equation is to calculate the surface area of a sphere with a diameter of 2 units as opposed to one with a diameter of 4 units. The three-layer mats are going to have a conductive scrim center anei and work well with most wrist strap constant monitors. If your process has technical personnel setting or standing at a workstation they DO require grounding via s77 Wrist Strap.

We are removing old vinyl tile and replacing with ESD protective tile.

The area is not high traffic. Conductive properties which reduce hazards that may result from static electricity buildup, and reduce the possibility of ignition of explosives and volatile chemicals.

ESD flooring systems are referred to as static conductive more conductive or static dissipative not as conductive, but will dissipate charges in an orderly fashion.

Impact resistance for the toe area of footwear. Within the ESDPA, they do require the additional shielding protection of the device, but it is always a good idea when practical. How important is meeting industry standards to you and your company? We are wondering if ESD conductive or dissipative is best. The top layer would give the mats its resistance to chemicals, resistance to solder, flux, and the ability to keep it clean.


In selecting an electrical range there are several key factors to consider, these are in order of importance in our professional opinion: The auxiliary ground shall be bonded to the AC equipment ground when possible. Are you fully operational and or will the work be done in phases?

Budgetary factors Performance warranty Maintenance level expectations Esthetics I think this will give you some things to consider moving forward. Is your staff going to be wearing personnel grounding protection? Our Duro-Stat line is actually a homogenous vinyl ESD matting with great mechanical and electrical properties.

Ani use an isolated system, which reduce this effect by a simple law of nature- charge cannot be created or destroyed in an isolated system. How important is humidity in the control of electrostatic problems?


Our tile is specified as static conductive 2. See the attached white paper on this specific subject. Grounding of an ESD flooring system is comprised of appropriately placed copper grounding tape running beneath flooring overlayment adhesive and attached to primary electrical building grounds located throughout the facility, as well as installation of GZ- ground plates.

What is the difference between anti-static and static dissipative floors? Let us know if we can provide you with flooring sample submittals, product specification sheets, quotations, etc.


I hope this helps address your question, please let us know if we can be of further assistance with any ESD questions or ESD protective product requirements you and your team may be sourcing. Based on what you have described in you e-mail, conductive range is best suited for your application, dissipative should not be considered. This deals with induced potential on objects.

Really close to the plates, the effects of decay time are linear and are affected essd a plane source. If your technical staff removes their wrist strap to transport an ESD sensitive device or component outside the ESD protected area, the device also needs to be shielded as well as the technician being properly outfitted with ESD shoes, booties or heel straps.

The exception being our Anti-Fatigue II line, this static dissipative mat is a vinyl mat andi a foamed vinyl backing. We have an ESD tile floor in our testing lab. Eesd things get complicated. Attachment of a typical GZ flooring system to an existing substrate is typically accomplished via GZ-CR releasable liquid conductive fiber-loaded adhesive. Keep in mind that smaller objects have lower capacitance and the time to discharge them maybe shorter than the discharge time.

We subscribe to the standard NFPA requirements for conductive flooring.

As this particular document has even been published yet, please keep this document confidential for your internal use only. Puncture resistance of footwear bottoms.

We are an explosives manufacturer and are looking to repaint our conductive flooring.
