- Product qualification is normally conducted during the initial selection of ESD control products and materials. Any of the following methods can be used: product specification review, independent laboratory evaluation or internal laboratory evaluation.
- For ESD control footwear/flooring systems that were installed before the adoption of this standard, ongoing compliance verification records can be used as evidence of product qualification.
- The required limit of < 1.0 x 10E9 ohm is the “maximum” allowed value. The user should document the resistance values that were measured for product qualification for the footwear and the floor to comply with the < 100 volts body voltage generation and use these resistances for compliance verification.

- Product qualification is normally conducted during the initial selection of ESD control products and materials. Any of the following methods can be used: product specification review, independent laboratory evaluation or internal laboratory evaluation.
- For standards that have multiple resistance test methods, these limits apply to all methods.
- Worksurfaces are defined as any surface on which an unprotected ESDS item is placed.
- Due to a wide variety of applications for worksurfaces, specific requirements that could be broadly applied are difficult to determine. If there is a concern for CDM failures, then a lower limit of 1×106 ohms for point to point and point to groundable point should be considered.

**The following test reports show that AmeriWorx Tile meets all aspects of ESDA 20.20-2014 as reflected in the tables below:**

EPA = ESD protected area. A defined location with the necessary materials, tools, and equipment capable of controlling static electricity to a level that minimizes damage to ESD susceptible items.

Examples: 100 = 10E2 , 1000 = 10E3 , 10000 = 10E4 , 100000 = 10E5 , 3.49 x 10E4 = 34900

## Benefits

- Gap-Free Installation: Precision-milled edges eliminate gaps in installation. High-density resin eliminates tile shrinkage.
- Color runs through entire thickness of the tile so that deep scratches do not reveal a different color — helps hide scratches.
- Never requires wax: High-density resin reduces maintenance, resists scuff marks and staining, and overall is easier to keep clean.
- Ideal for extreme-duty manufacturing applications.
- Meets requirements for Buy Federal American as well as RoHS directive.
