These floors require proper cleaning and maintenance, but will likely exceed the requirements for These are the two most important criteria for recommending a system for this environment. The National Electrical Code defines a ground as: Will odors be a problem during the installation process? Are you fully operational and or will the work be done in phases? What is the best and most economical product to qnsi Notice that andi of up to 1.

Our tile is specified as static conductive 2. Our No-Slip II is made of a corrugated slip-resistant vinyl. How important is meeting industry standards to you and your company? Let us know if we esr provide you with flooring sample submittals, product specification sheets, quotations, etc.

The black or Hot conductor comes from a circuit breaker and goes to an AC outlet receptacle. Within the ESDPA, they do require the additional shielding protection of the device, but it is always a good idea when practical. I have linked a white paper below for your review that puts this topic into perspective. The backing would typically promote an anti-skid and durable surface. What is the difference between anti-static and static dissipative floors? Protective personnel grounding products such as; heel straps, booties and shoes working in conjunction with an ESD floor are designed for processes within your ESD program where the technician has to ani mobile within an ESDPA, ESD Protected Ansu where the electrostatic sensitive exd is not protected in an ESD protective container ezd shielded in some manner, e.


The three-layer mats are going to have a conductive scrim center layer and work well with most wrist strap constant monitors. Thus, there is a small electric field generated which is zero at the work bench surface if dissipative ESD mats are being used and largest as you get closer to the ionizer. Please see the attached floor comparisons chart for additional things you should consider, this chart may prove helpful to you and your team. The auxiliary ground needs to be bonded to the equipment ground to ensure that there is no difference in electrical potential x7 the two systems.

Does the type of work being performed in the protected area include, working with Power Supplies? This deals with induced potential on objects.

How important is humidity in the control of electrostatic problems? Compression resistance for the toe area of footwear. Are there any environmental conditions to consider? Is your staff going to be wearing personnel grounding protection? My question is, why is it during the distance of 20 to 24 inch the graph line become a straight line saturated and not growing linearly like the other points?

If your process has technical personnel setting or standing at a workstation they DO require grounding via a Wrist Strap. The green conductor or equipment grounding conductor comes from a ground bus and is bonded to the metal chassis or conduit. This ionizer also has a heater function.

Anti-static is not the proper term to use for ESD flooring. Anti-Static refers to the ability to suppress charge generation or the prevention of static build up. Consider that the environment would be expected to be consistently wet. What is the intended use for the floor? The term antistatic typically refers to a range of resistance outside of industry accepted standards for ESD esv.

The ESD vinyl flooring that we sell, service, and install is typically manufactured from a permanently conductive, non-humidity dependant blend of conductive additives interspersed with a pure virgin solid vinyl.

The goal in grounding resistance values is to achieve the lowest ground resistance value possible. Anti-static materials will not safely attract or decay a static charge before it randomly discharges. Puncture resistance essd footwear bottoms. From the attached documents, there are 2 graphs of decay wnsi versus effective distanceone for decay time on negative ed and the other one for decay time on positive charges. Impact resistance for the toe area of footwear. 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.


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.

Do you own or lease the building? Suffice to say, nature is too complicated to be linear. Will electrical potential damage a device, or will the rate of current discharge do the damage? The exception being our Anti-Fatigue II line, this static dissipative mat is a vinyl mat with a xnsi vinyl backing.

Static Dissipative SD properties to reduce hazards due to excessively low footwear resistance that may exist where SD footwear is required.

Will liquids or spills be anticipated or utilized in this area? The top layer would give the mats its resistance to chemicals, resistance to solder, flux, and the ability to keep it clean. Chain saw cut resistance, and Dielectric insulation. We have an ESD tile floor in our testing lab. Tile, we have many millions of square feet of experience in this category, so esf call me when you have some time.

Our Duro-Stat line is actually a homogenous vinyl ESD matting with great mechanical and electrical properties.
