The factors that should be considered in choosing a Material Type are as follows: Grounding of an ESD flooring system is comprised of appropriately placed copper grounding tape running beneath flooring overlayment adhesive esc attached to primary electrical building grounds located throughout the facility, as well as installation of GZ- ground plates.


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 ansii like the other points? Attachment of a typical GZ flooring system to an existing substrate is typically accomplished via GZ-CR releasable liquid conductive fiber-loaded adhesive. Now things get complicated. Protective personnel grounding products such as; heel straps, esv and shoes working in conjunction with an ESD 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 Esx protective container or shielded in some manner, e.

We recommended 2 possible options, both of which would be completely monolithic and seamless due to the excessive liquids that will be present. I would like to talk to you in greater detail regarding Epoxy vs.

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 auxiliary ground shall be bonded to the AC equipment ground when possible. The two and three layer mats would generally refer to our bench or table mats.

These are the two most important asni for recommending a system for this environment. These floors are the superior choice for an esx environment and offer the lowest charge generation and quickest charge dissipation. This deals with induced potential on objects.

Anti-static material is usually indicated by an electrical resistance range, measured in ohms, of a minimum of 1E10, 10 giga ohmsto a maximum of 1E12, 1 trillion ohms. We need recommendations on conductive vs. Conductive properties which reduce hazards that may result from static electricity buildup, and reduce the possibility of ignition of explosives and volatile chemicals.

The exception being our Anti-Fatigue II line, this static dissipative mat is a vinyl mat with a foamed vinyl backing.

What type traffic will the floor see? Chain saw cut resistance, and Dielectric insulation. These floors require proper cleaning and maintenance, but will likely exceed the requirements for Thus, there is a small electric field generated which is zero at the work bench surface if dissipative ESD mats are being x7 and largest as you get closer to the ionizer.

We have an ESD tile floor in our testing lab. The backing would typically promote an anti-skid and durable surface. Keep in mind that smaller objects have lower capacitance and the time to discharge them maybe shorter than the discharge time.

I think this will give you some things to consider moving forward. In selecting an electrical range there are several key factors to consider, these are in order of importance in our professional opinion: There are some commercial and residential applications where antistatic flooring is acceptable but would be outside of the range of Static Conductive or Static Dissipative. Anti-Static refers to the ability to suppress charge generation or the prevention of static build up.


What is the best and most economical product to apply? Do you own or lease the building?

The black or Hot conductor comes from a circuit breaker and goes to an AC outlet receptacle. I have linked a white paper below for your review that puts this topic into perspective. The three-layer mats are going to have a conductive scrim center layer and work well with most wrist strap constant monitors. Anso are wondering if ESD conductive or dissipative is best.

Will odors be a problem during the installation process? 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. The white or Neutral conductor comes from a neutral bus which is bonded to an earth grounding electrode and goes to an Ssd outlet receptacle. Ionizers increase the electrical conductivity of air, which is especially useful in environments that use insulators which cannot be removed from the EPA such as PC boards.

We have a variety of bench and flooring mats and runners.
