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

The common point ground or bus bar is connected or bonded to this ground connection, as is various other ESD technical elements the grounding conductors or wires from wrist strapsworksurfacesflooring or floor matstools, fixtures, storage unitscartschairsgarmentsetc.

There are some commercial and residential applications where antistatic flooring is acceptable but would ed outside of the range of Static Conductive or Static Dissipative. Notice that voltages of up to 1. The white or Neutral conductor comes from a neutral bus which is bonded to an earth grounding electrode and goes to an AC outlet receptacle.

Is your staff going to be wearing personnel grounding protection? The term antistatic typically refers to a range of resistance outside of industry accepted standards for ESD flooring. Tile, we have many millions of square feet of experience in this ss7, so please call me when you have some time. How important is humidity in the control of electrostatic problems?


I have linked a white paper below for your review that puts this topic into perspective. You want to keep you flooring system clean and always below a gig ohm. These floors require proper cleaning and maintenance, but will likely exceed the requirements for We need recommendations on conductive vs.


Out of these 2 systems, a conductive epoxy is going to be most cost effective, verse a thermally heat welded conductive vinyl system. The auxiliary ground shall be bonded to the AC equipment ground when possible. We are an explosives manufacturer and are looking to repaint our conductive flooring.

See the attached white paper on this specific ese. Please see the attached floor comparisons chart anei additional things you should consider, this chart may prove helpful to you and your team.

The three-layer mats are going to have a conductive scrim center layer and work well with most wrist strap constant monitors.

If you choose this flooring system, the RTG readings may be at the low e7 of the scale and be in the E06 to E07 range or it may be at the high end and be in the E08 range. Budgetary factors Performance warranty Maintenance level expectations Esthetics I think this will give you some things to consider moving forward.

We use an isolated system, which reduce this effect by a simple law of nature- charge cannot be created or destroyed in an isolated system. The two and three layer mats would generally refer to our bench or table mats. Will odors be a problem during the installation process?

The backing would typically promote an anti-skid and durable surface. Thus, there is a small electric field generated which is zero at the work bench surface ss7 dissipative ESD mats are being used and largest as you get closer to the ionizer.

Based on what you have described in you e-mail, conductive range is best suited for your application, dissipative should not be considered.

The exception being our Anti-Fatigue II line, this static dissipative mat is a vinyl mat with a foamed vinyl backing. We are removing old vinyl tile and replacing with ESD protective tile.

As this particular document has even been published yet, please keep this document confidential xnsi your internal use only. Anti-static material is usually indicated by an electrical resistance range, measured in ohms, of a minimum of 1E10, 10 giga ohmsto a s of 1E12, 1 trillion ohms. There are a variety of adhesives for various types of application.



In selecting an electrical range anwi are several key factors to consider, these are in order of importance in our professional opinion: Compression 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.

Protective personnel grounding products such as; heel straps, booties and shoes working in conjunction with an Anxi floor are designed for processes within your ESD program where the technician has to be mobile within an ESDPA, ESD Protected Area where the electrostatic sensitive device is not protected in an ESD protective container or shielded in some manner, e.

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 s and your team may be sourcing.

I would like to talk to you in greater detail regarding Epoxy vs. The green conductor or equipment grounding conductor comes from a ground bus and is bonded to the metal chassis or conduit. We are wondering if ESD conductive or dissipative is best. Our Duro-Stat line andi actually a homogenous vinyl ESD matting with great mechanical and electrical properties.

Please let us know how we can better support you and your company moving forward, as your satisfaction is our highest priority! These floors are the superior rsd for an assembly environment and offer the lowest charge generation and quickest charge dissipation.
