Conductive Flooring esd Flooring
Moving feet and contact with objects generate triboelectric charges. Static sensitive areas require a grounded flooring surface which is slightly conductive but not overtly. Defines conductive flooring resistance as LESS THAN 1 Million (106) Ohms.
Conductive flooring systems provide the lowest charge generation and quickest charge dissipation for an ESD production environment. The flooring is grounded through a copper strip which connects to the flooring to a grounded connection such as a wall outlet.
