No. Regular tile is insulative. Like the plastic insulation on electrical cords and AC plugs, regular flooring has no conductivity. Electricity cannot flow through an insulator because the resistance is too high.
Only flooring materials with a resistance measurement below 1 x 10E9 can be grounded. This means, static electricity cannot flow through regular flooring material to reach the conductive adhesive.
With Staticworx ESD flooring, you never have to choose between performance and aesthetics. Our beautiful, high quality ESD carpet tile, vinyl, EC rubber tile and sheet goods, and ESD epoxy floors are as beautiful as they are functional.
